COMMITTEES

Capital Planning – Selectman Okenquist — nothing really going on yet.

Pension Board – Selectman Goldblatt — Plan went up 1.6%, however the yearly valuation came out and there was a —.75% reduction. If the “assumption” rate is lowered the costs for the town and police department will go up. Pension plans have been closed for quite the past 16 years or more. 

Watch this section on OGAT Video on Demand for a better understanding. 

Bond Construction Oversight – Selectman Goldblatt — the Derby Milford Road bridge replacement will cost around $4.4 million. Around 50% will be reimbursed by the state. There is no money from the town in place at this time. Pool locker room repairs, School parking lots, and work at the library still need to be done. If everything pans out, the bridge work could begin in 2017 and last about 5 months.

Watch this section on OGAT Video on Demand for a better understanding.

Screen Shot 2015-08-12 at 7.33.55 PMThe Board of Selectmen met at the Orange Town Hall Wednesday, Aug. 12 at 7:30 p.m.

The first speaker said she was not proud to live in Orange because the selectmen approved a gun show at the Community Center in November.

“Shame On You,” she said.

Resident Marilyn Cohen said she knew there would be beautiful antique guns there but also some firearms for sale and she would like the board to rethink holding it at the community center.

The third speaker said she did not believe children should be exposed to guns on town property and asked that the board reconsider the matter.

A Dogwood Road resident said she did not believe the Community Center was a proper venue for the show. She had several questions.

Q: What would be sold at the show?

A: There are several types of items that could be sold, but it is up to the police and state what WILL be allowed to be sold. Any guns that are banned by the STATE will not be available at the show. Whatever is legal in the state of CT

How will the building be secured at night? First Selectman Jim Zeoli said no working guns would be in the building at night.

Police and other personnel will be providing security.

American Legion Commander Lou Merritt said the legion has had two shows recently and the club that is running the show adheres to all the state regulations.

Anyone who is purchasing items at the show must be trained and licensed and must produce all the proper documentation and ID.

Q: Why High Plains and Not The Legion Hall Because High Plains Has Children present for other activities.

A: The Legion is not large enough for the show, parking is an issue and High Plains was chosen by the police.

A: The pool area where children will be is in the rear of the building and separate from where the show is going to be held.

Selectman Mitch Goldblatt asked where the Legion would draw the line on the sale of firearms at the show.

Merritt said if it is legal to sell in CT, then they would not restrict it from being sold.

Q: Will Ammunition be sold?

A: Town Attorney Vincent Marino said he spoke to Chief Gagne and NO Ammunition would be on site.

Goldblatt asked to make a motion to reconsider the prior decision.

Selectman Ralph Okenquist said he’d like to see the issue put on the agenda in September after the Legion has an opportunity to meet with public safety professionals on the 27th of this month.

Zeoli said when the board hears a request from a group they make sure it’s a legal use. He said he is unhappy about the club from Stratford that is joining with the Legion on this show is getting 75% of the profits and the Legion is only getting 25%.

The discussion on this matter will be continued to the Sept. 9 Selectmen’s meeting

Briefs

DEEP Awarded 7 communities with grants for their recycling efforts. Orange was among the recipients

The Community Services received a grant for a new bus – cost to the town is $10,000 state pays for rest.

Peck Place School, Firehouse #1 and Orange Community Center will be paved next week.

The State’s paving of Orange Center Road has been brutal on resident’s sleep, but it should be done soon.

Thursday, Aug. 13, at 6:30 p.m. at Old Tavern Park. Mom’s Hit The Field Cancer Benefit Softball game. Come On Out!

Indian Tribes that previously applied for recognition and were denied, are exempt from applying again. So, Rainbow Trail residents you are safe for now.

DRONES

Drones have many positives and negatives, so the Police Chief gave his input and Town Attorney Vin Marino got cracking on it.

The town has the power to enact an ordinance regarding the use of drones in the municipality.

People should be free to do what they want on their own property without fear of invasion of privacy.

Gagne said someone should be allowed to fly one over their own home but…what was the board’s thoughts on the matter?

Everyone loved Kevin Arnone’s Fireworks Video from the Independence Day Celebration, but some people were concerned when they saw the drone flying above them. Kevin was very polite and compliant when asked to move it on over.

Editor’s Note: An inexperienced person like myself may crash one in a crowd. Which would be a serious public safety concern.

The Selectmen would like to hear from the public about their thoughts and customize something for the town.

Executive Session

Discuss refilling a couple of positions at the library.

29.5 to 35 hrs per week for both the adult services and children’s library positions

increase copays for positions by 1%

All unanimously approved.

These decisions were made in the hopes that the Library would be able to re-open on Saturdays.
