The previous Board of Selectmen’s meeting minutes will be presented at the next regularly scheduled meeting.
Laura Caruso explains that this meeting is to discuss precinct planning for the Town of Sutton. Laura begins the discussion by thanking the BOS for coming in on short notice. Laura states that this re-precincting/redistricting plan is due to the results obtained from the 2010 census. The new format presents itself like a deed showing boundaries and roads. Selectman Hersom asks what has changed for the Town of Sutton, Laura says nothing. Laura does state that the population listed is 8963 which she feels is low. Selectman Geraghty asks what is missing, Laura replies that when the census is mailed out, it does not go to P.O. Boxes which in Sutton results to 1300-1500 families. Selectman Stuart asks if that is a problem, Selectman Geraghty responds being counted low is not good. Hearing no further
