Planning Board Minutes
February 24, 2000 Meeting
The Selectmen, Kathy Maddocks, Herbert Ramsdell and Barry Gammons came into the meeting at this time.
Diane Hubbard raised an issue which concerned her. Richard Jarrett, Planning Board member, has a website "www.Limington.org." Diane felt that opinions which were made regarding the proposed changes to the Zoning Ordinance by Mr. Jarrett were not appropriate for a member of the Planning Board and an elected official. She felt that Mr. Jarrett should not be influencing the public by telling them how to vote. She further felt that he should not use people's names without first informing them of his plan and the context of use (see attached).
Richard Jarrett responded that he did not feel he was telling people how to vote but was expressing his opinions. He saw no problem with his information and self opinions. He stated that on each page of the website there was a reference that the website was not the official website of the government of the Town of Limington.
Kathy Maddocks, Selectperson, said she felt that the disclaimer should be made larger and more visible. She further stated that it would be some time before the Town would establish a website.
Robert Cyr made the following motion:
MOTION: To adjourn the February 24, 2000 meeting of the Planning Board.
The motion was seconded by Harold Jordan and carried unanimously
The meeting was adjourned at 8:00 P.M.
