Motion to appoint Scott Brown to the Planning Board (Backstrom/Woodhouse). Discussion about the process of appointing to Boards or Committees. Mr. Woodhouse spoke to Jeff Osgood and Scott Brown. Mr. Backstrom stated that based on his experience he did not need to speak to both. Ms. Callahan did not speak to either as she thought both candidates would be at this meeting and the Board would speak to them with the public in attendance. Members of the public also thought that there would be a “public” interview session with the candidates. Mr. Backstrom withdrew his motion and the Board will meet with the candidates on Thursday, December 9, 2021.
