Donna Jellen addressed the Selectmen regarding the modified 2015-16 salary payroll.

First Selectman Goodhall proposed the following motion, superseding the motion of the June 20 Selectmen's Meeting:

To properly reset the 2016-17 salaried payroll schedule, and to be aligned with the "Town of Union Payroll Policies" updated January 4, 2016, the following solution has been proposed by the Treasurer and endorsed by the First Selectman. This policy has been implemented in that a fiscal year end payroll was run for five salaried employees, closing out the 2015-16 fiscal year. For 2016-17, a half salary payroll will be run for July 7 and a second half salary payroll for July 14. This puts the payroll back on schedule without paying salaried employees in advance. A payroll schedule has been submitted by the Treasurer.

Motion seconded by Selectman Heck. Vote was unanimous.

The Library LoCIP renovation project update was presented and discussed.

First Selectman reported on a meeting with Mr. Hartmann of the Ross Solar Group regarding possible solar panels for the Union School and Town Hall.

Motion to adjourn at 8:20 p.m. by Selectman Kratochvil; seconded by Selectman Heck.   Vote was unanimous.



Respectfully Submitted,

Karen Johnson

Selectmen's Clerk
