After opening remarks and reports, selectmen will interview Jim Cummings, a candidate for the Energy and Sustainability Committee. This is an action item, as after interviewing Cummings, board members will likely vote on whether to approve to appointment to the board.

Technology Administrator Mark Thompson is on the agenda at 8:30 p.m. to give a presentation on a Town Meeting article tracking database.

Later in the evening, selectmen will be asked to vote to sign off on the 2014 Annual Town Meeting warrant, which must be in the hands of residents no later than Monday, March 17.

Also up for a vote will be whether or not to approve a $25,000 contract with Woodard & Curran for engineering services. This contract is related to work done to comply with the EPA Phase 2 MS4 permit and other stormwater-related tasks.

Among the final agenda items is a meeting with Christos Vozikis, the owner of CJ's Pizzeria, which is located at 29 Hudson Road, Suite 100. Selectmen will be asked to vote to approve a new Common Victualler License for the business.

"Woodard & Curran"? Is there relation to our selectman Chuck Woodard? If so, I propose all selectmen be prohibited from all financial matters such as this. The potential conflict of interest is improper behavior. This should be a rule across the board with all paid town officials including the town planner.

Actually the change was made to dissolve a prior conflict.

Woodard & Curran is an 800 person national engineering firm founded in 1979. http://www.woodardcurran.com/ I have no idea if one of the founders might be a distant relative of mine. I doubt it. My wife is self employed. She terminated her contract with the town right after the election, as promised.

Another key topic of concern is centered around the Energy and Sustainability Committee's program, proposed use of CPC funding and what appears to be an attempt to skirt around Chapter 149 RFQ/RFP procurement requirements for professional building service solicitation requirements (state law) and general fiscal approach to what appears to be a solution in search of a problem.
