"About Town" unofficial notes:  helpful in researching specific topics:
 Please scroll down, then follow link: at minimum, actions/minutes since November 16, 2001, in reverse chronological order:  Board of Selectmen's older meeting notes.

"Open Items" now spelled out in every agenda.

WARNING:  Don't assume "first and third Thursdays"
"Schedule of Selectmen’s meeting for 2014 which will be at 7:30pm in the Town Hall Meeting Room"
Generally, the first and third Thursdays at 7:30pm...however this year the  Board of Selectmen seemed to plan ahead, more than usual, for dates other than 1st and 3rd when they know that they will be out of town.  Months when the traditional 1st and 3rd are indicated in bold - please note as that seven (7), or more than half, show the traditional 1st and 3rd dates. 
So it is vital to know the dates below if you are making plans of your own!  And of course, as the year goes along, it is most likely that changes will have to be made for one reason or another.

Tri-Board "Special Committees"
meet at odd hours AM or PM - I have a question for the Board of Ethics:  Is legality the same as ethical behavior?
We include links to "Joint Committee" or Tri-Board* and Global Facilities** Committees and our notes about their meetings, because we think they are major actors in making the Town's plans work this year.
TRI-BOARD WHO?  This group includes the Board of Finance as well as other groups.  Depending on the issue - which we don't know about until special meeting posted 24 hours in advance, theoretically.  And more often than not we cannot nor can the newspaper, attend.  Sound like "transparency" to you?  Sounds legal to me...we'll see if it is all well-intended or not depending on how ATBM is run this year...GLOBAL FACILITIES COMMITTEE notes here and here.    BUDGET PROCESS DATES AND REPORTS FY'15 HERE

About Town decided to stay home this rainy night and watch the Selectmen from home on Channel 79;  considering that after the pledge of allegiance they immediately went into executive session on the police contract, we were right!  It would have been a ridiculous waste of time to go out on a cold and rainy night to sit outside a closed door. So we kept going to the TV at various intervals to see if they, the Selectmen, were out of executive session and by gum, after about an hour, @8:30PM, THERE THEY WERE BACK IN SESSION!  The First Selectman was reporting on what she had been up to - what I was able to pick up was that she had been to the M.O.R.E. Commission education sub-committee and they were getting into proposals for regionalizing special education.  Additionally, the "car tax" was up for regionalizing, too.  Tax refunds and minujtes approved.

SPECIAL BOARD OF SELECTMEN’S MEETING AGENDA
MONDAY SEPTEMBER 16, 2013 3:00 PM
TOWN HALL MEETING ROOM
1. Discussion/decision regarding calling a Special Town Meeting for the purpose of expanding the description of work to be undertaken at Weston High School as contained in the Town’s bond issuance authorization vote of 2010/2-1 vote "yes" for Oct. 3rd, 7pm in the Town Hall Meeting Room.

WINDOWS DOORS AND HVAC AND CALL OF MEETING
Also on the agenda of this Special Board of Selectmen's meeting was an  item regarding High School windows, doors and now HVAC improvements, and the need to get Town Meeting to approve use of money from a previous Town Meeting to apply to a revision of that proposal.  Is this not just the kind of thing that the Charter Revisions of 2003 was meant to prevent (below, indented) - ONLY IF THE CITIZENS INNITIATED IT...?

Shall the Charter of the Town of Weston, Secion 2.7 Petition for a Special Town Meeting for Enactment of Ordinances or Other Action, be amended to change the required personal signatures to not less than 5% of qualified voters.

Shall the Charter of the Town of Weston, Section 2.7 Petition for a Special Town Meeting for Enactment of Ordinances or Other Action, be amended to give the board of Selectmen the discretion to reject a petition that is materially the same as a matter that previously has been voted upon by referendum.

Section 3.6 of the new Charter of 2011, it would appear, has removed that 2003 protection, from our cursory reading.  Thus it may be possible once again to overturn the Town Meeting, as was done pre-2003.  And by the way, in 2003, quorums were introduced or re-introduced into Town Meeting procedure.

FACTS
During discussion of the facts in this case, the Superintendent took herself out of explaining what happened before her time.  The Building Committee  chair. carried the day for argument to go to town meeting to revise meaning of previous actions.
 
This explains where the extra quarter million $$ came from: http://www.lwvweston.org/spectownmtg1-17-08call.pdf
And this explains how the windows and doors $$ was OK'd: http://www.lwvweston.org/SpecTownMtg3-23-10.pdf

2. Discussion/decision regarding the Building Committee request for the Board of Selectmen to authorize the First Selectman to engage the Firm of Kaeyer, Garment & Davidson to complete construction documents for, door, window, HVAC & related improvements at Weston High School/not done.
3. Discussion/decision regarding determining the wording regarding the Charter Revision Ballot Question/missed deadlines, not to be on ballot.
