PLACE: BOARD OF SELECTMEN MEETING ROOM
PRESENT: Nancy Talbot, John Carroll, Richard Norton, John Desmond
ABSENT: William Braman
ALSO PRESENT: Stuart Beckley (City Planner ~ Easthampton MA)
Call to order at 7 p.m.
Nancy Talbot provided information to those present that a vote which was taken at the meeting of December 27, 2011, regarding the scheduling of a hearing for Niko’s Pizza was incorrect. The Board scheduled a hearing for January 10th at 7:30 PM in error. The Licensing Agent had actually requested that at the January 10th meeting a hearing should be scheduled on the application of Niko’s Pizza for a Malt & Wine License.
Motion by Richard A. Norton to rescind the vote taken on December 27th to schedule a public hearing for January 10, 2012 at 7:30 PM, 2nd by John Carroll. Four (4) voted in favor of rescinding the vote.
Upon further clarification by Nancy Talbot the Board was notified that a hearing needed to be held for the Malt & Wine License Application by Niko’s Pizza – and that it should be scheduled for Tuesday January 24, 2012 at 7:10 PM, this would allow for all procedural advertising and notification to abutters to be made.
Motion by Richard A. Norton to schedule a public hearing on the application of Niko’s Pizza for a Wine and Malt License for Tuesday January 24, 2012 at 7:10 PM, 2nd by John Carroll. Four (4) voted in favor.
Motion by Richard A. Norton to enter into Executive Session at 7:03 PM, under MGL Chapter 30A §21A Qualification No. 2 – Negotiations with non- union personnel not to return to open session. Seconded by John Carroll. Roll call vote: Nancy J. Talbot – yes, John Carroll – yes, John Desmond – yes, Richard A. Norton – yes.
At this point John Carroll and Nancy Talbot left the meeting room and did not enter into Executive Session as this was a subcommittee of two – Richard A. Norton and John Desmond for purposes of negotiations.
