Bristol appoints members to regional planning board
BRISTOL — Members of the Bristol selectboard at their June 21 meeting discussed three openings on the Addison County Regional Planning Commission, as well as the seat on the town’s planning commission vacated recently by Jim Peabody.
The board appointed Bill Sayre, Peter Grant and Chico Martin to the regional planning commission, and decided to advertise the opening on the planning commission.
Town Administrator Bill Bryant said he will also be reaching out to applicants to the planning commission who expressed interest in 2008, 2009 and 2010 who were not appointed to the board at that time to let them know about the opening.
Also at that meeting, selectmen confirmed landfill rates for 2010-2011. The board several months ago increased coupon rates from $3 to $3.50 for up to three 30-gallon trash bags, and now moved to set rates for other garbage — like light bulbs, tires or electronic waste — at multiples of $3.50 so customers could use coupons more frequently at the landfill.
