Mrs. Carlson stated that Mr. Stow was absent from the meeting as his father in law had passed away yesterday. She said the memorial service would be on Monday 9/20/14 and if anyone wished to donate a dessert for the service it would be welcome.
Mrs. Carlson said the town clerk had provided a copy of the Employee Handbook with all changes highlighted in red. She asked if everyone had a chance to review it.
Mrs. Thomas clarified that she had not included the appendix pages which outlined previous adopted changes to the handbook and had also not added the current changes to the appendix as they had not been formally adopted. She also indicated that she had not altered the index (correction of page numbers, etc.) for the same reason.
Mr. Stapleton asked why Shirley Findley’s name appears on the Code of Ethics as the author.
Mrs. Thomas said because she was the original author and although the code has been reaffirmed, it has not been changed since Ms. Findley originally authored it.
Mrs. Carlson provided her copy of the proposed employee handbook to Mr. Strickland so that he could review the proposed changes with the board members. Mrs. Carlson indicated that she and the board would like to meet with the entire highway employee group to go over the changes to the handbook.
There was discussion of the changes in the handbook between Mr. Strickland and the board.
