  1. Call to Order
    The meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m.
  1. Non-Union Employee Compensation for FY 17-18
    Options re: proposed 2.5% increase for non-union employees will be discussed further at the Board of Finance meeting on 6/26/17.

Julia Pemberton reviewed the proposed budgeted 2.5% pay increase for non-union Town employees since no State budget is yet in place. She noted that no additional stipends or adjustments would be granted, since all employees are currently in a satisfactory range. Chairman Alvarez noted that the increase was included in the budget and possible additional levies imposed by the State will not be materially affected by the relatively small budgeted increase.  J. Pemberton noted that out of the $90,000 budgeted, only $63,000 will be used for the increases.

On the motion of W. Mazzucco and the second of M. Lewis, the Board voted unanimously to recommend to the Board of Selectmen to proceed with the 2.5% increase in salary as presented for the non-union employees of the Town.

  1. Executive Session:
    On the motion of W. Mazzucco and the second of J. Dolan, the Board voted unanimously to go into Executive Session at 9:00 p.m. with the Board of Selection to discuss pending litigation re: GLDC foreclosure.

The Board came out of Executive Session at 10:19 p.m. No action was taken.

On the motion of W. Mazzucco and the second of K. Yonkers, the Board voted unanimously to adjourn the meeting at 10:20 p.m.
