Minimum Housing Standards Ordinance
The Select Board proposes to adopt a minimum housing standards ordinance and seeks comments from the public. The proposed ordinance will be avaiable at Town Hall and the Rollinsford Public Library and is posted online here. (There is evidence in the historical minutes that the Select Board passed a minimum housing standard “policy” on July 9, 2012 but we can find no copy of the policy passed by that Board. While the Select Board minutes referred to the document as a “policy” it also contained penalties and fines which are more appropriately placed in an ordinance).

Proposed Increase to Transfer Station Sticker Price
The Select Board is proposing to increase the transfer station sticker price from the current price of $10 per sticker ($5 for each additional sticker) to $20 per sticker (no discount on additional stickers). The proposed $20 price equates to $1.67 per month per user. The transfer station revenue currently covers 28% of its operating costs; with the proposed increase the transfer station will cover 35% of its operating costs. The differential is covered by general taxation.
