Preview of the October 26 Board of Selectmen Meeting from Town Administrator Fred Turkington

The Board of Selectmen will meet this evening at 7:00 p.m. in the Selectmen's Meeting Room. Prior to the meeting, selectmen will attend the Finance Committee's hearing to review guidelines for preparing the FY11 operating budget. That meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.
The selectmen will hear a presentation by a group of citizens that have been exploring alternative development schemes for the former Lee's Farm Stand property on Route 20.
Town Administrator Fred Turkington will report on logistics planning for Special Town Meeting to be held on Wednesday, November 18th at the High School Field House. He will also review the Warrant and the schedule of meetings and hearings that culminate with town meeting.
The Board will begin the annual performance review and evaluation process of the town administrator. For each of the past three years, selectmen have discussed the status of goals and the effectiveness of strategies to achieve each, as well as the critical skills applied to resolving issues. Each selectman provides comments that are submitted to the chair, who then drafts a consensus evaluation reflecting the thoughts of the members of the board. At a subsequent meeting, the evaluation is discussed with the town administrator before becoming final. The review process is conducted in public session. 
The meeting will conclude with a brief executive session to discuss strategy related to pending litigation.
