Members from the Community Building came to the board to have a discussion on repairs. They have been maintaining the building for about 30-40 years and would like some monetary assistance from the town council on the larger repairs coming up. The building is older and needs updating and up keeping. They will first need an architect to look at the building and see what exactly needs to be done. The building belongs to the town and they will help as much as they can.

There was an update from the Westport police department. There were 2 arrests, 2 citations, 3 written warnings, 8 verbal warnings, 35 calls for services, and 3 investigations.

The board approved the bathroom in town hall being repaired. The insurance renewal was approved.
