• Porter/Jacob RDA for driveway repair at 217 Wendell Depot Road
• 417 Farley Road violation of 2022 DOA
• Shared agent: What is our response to Keith Barnicle of FRCOG’s
email of October 3? “I’m writing today as a follow-up to our
region-wide discussion in August and to see if there might be some
capacity this month for getting together again with this smaller
group. Working together to help advance this could help additional
municipalities in Franklin County take additional steps towards
finding efficiencies with managing this important work and – also,
help others locally with a potential roadmap.”
• Cronquist monitoring report: Ava Lauer, Forestry Assistant, DCR /
Bureau of Forest Fire Control & Forestry, monitored the CR on August
8, 2023 and reports seeing hemlock “needle disease.” She does not
specify which disease. Wooly adelgid is an insect. There are also
fungal diseases.

addition to resuscitating the FPAC.
