The problem is that each individual lot may or may not have needed any wetlands work done, but without the specifications listed in the original order, the commission isn’t always able to determine what work has been done and where.

The commission had assigned the investigation of several such lots to members, and one of them, 14 Calvin Street, became a problem because of a further mix-up with the paperwork. After examining the property during an earlier site walk on an adjacent property, the Conservation Commission found that the address was not the same as the property that needed the certificate of compliance. After examining original site plans they found that the street number didn’t correspond to the original lot number they were looking for.

Commissioner George Bacon plans to continue to investigate the matter.

Chairman William Daniels also announced that the commission is making progress toward establishing its new conservation agent/administrator position.

“We have submitted the job description,” said Daniels. “We are one step closer to getting our administrator.” The commission has sent the description to the Board of Selectmen. The next step is to have the Personnel Board classify the position and determine the salary level.

During the meeting, the commission also voted to approve a certificate of compliance for the new fire station, and reviewed the final draft of a Request for Proposal (RFP) to be advertised for the next phase of weed control in Sandy, Flanagan’s and Fletcher’s ponds. Once the RFP is advertised, the commission will be able to accept bids from companies to carry out the weed control program as approved by town meeting.
