we thinking about hiring?  Chairman Kinsley stated he feels
comfortable going into the season set up the way we have it.  The crew
stated they were comfortable as well stating last season went well. 
Patenaude stated he knew we had two part timers last season, Chairman
Kinsley stated we only used two part timers for two snowfalls last
season.  Chairman Kinsley stated that if it turns out we receive a lot
of snow and the need is there, we can look at hiring a part timer
then, but he feels confident going into the winter months the way
things are.

for Hanson Bridge on Thursday next week.  Board of review is scheduled
