OPEN FORUM

1) Scheduled request to address

None 

2) Non-scheduled request to address

Council President Settipane brought forward the letter from Francis (Jim)
J. West listed under communications.  Mr. West requested that the Council
allow him to use a portion of the land where the water tower is located to
access his lawn equipment.
      Mr. West noted that he would only be using his equipment once or
twice a week in the summer months.
      Additionally, Mr. West informed the Council that he has been a
resident of Jamestown for more than eighty years.

Members of the Council expressed concern with the Town taking on any
liability by allowing Mr. West egress and ingress through that property.

Maryanne Joyce expressed concern with the request and asked that the
Council deny Mr. West's request.  

Norman Messinger, Arthur Christman and Sterling Graham requested that the
Council allow Mr. West access to his equipment through the water tower
property.

Councilor Swain was not in favor of circumventing the proper procedure and
process that this type of request would require.

Following a lengthy discussion, it was moved by Councilor Willis, seconded
by Councilor Littman to allow ingress and egress to Mr. West to the
southern opening of the stonewall on property of the water tower, for not
more than two times per week, between the time period of May 1st to
October 15th for a period of one year, renewable through the Town
Administrator, on condition that there is a hold harmless indemnification
agreement, insurance coverage to the satisfaction of the Town
Administrator and Town Solicitor, and that Mr. West maintain the lawn at
that location.
      It was voted Council President, aye; Councilor Swain, nay; Councilor
Littman, aye; Councilor Willis, aye.
      The motion passed three in favor, one opposed.

Richard Allphin, Clarke Street, requested to be heard when the Council
discussed the report from the Planning Commission.

Stephanie Amerigian, Narragansett Avenue, requested permission to address
the Council under Section IX.

REPORTS OF BOARDS, COMMITTEES AND TOWN OFFICIALS

1) Town Administrator's report

------------------------------------------------------------

 Town Administrator Report
 May 29, 2001

The following report consists of items of general interest to the Council.
     I will be pleased to provide any additional clarification or
information you require.

GREAT NEWS: AS OF 12:00 noon on Thursday May 24,2001, the North Reservoir
was filled to capacity and over flowing!

Public Works

The Public Works Department has been assisting Don Haskell, the Town
computer consultant with the installation of fiber optics cable at Town
Hall and the Planning Office.
     The installation of the water and electrical cabling for the two new
campsites at Fort Getty has been completed. The Public Works Department
continues to grade and gravel a number of roads throughout the Town.

Recreation

The Recreation Department is continuing to take sign-ups for all summer
programs.
     Most of the seasonal staffing positions have been full with a few
exceptions.
     We do have a problem with the summer playground program.
     This program usually meets near the tennis court at the Lawn Avenue
school.
     This allows the children to use the tennis and basketball courts,
which are located in this area.
     The school department allows the Town to store materials and supplies
and use the restrooms at the Lawn Avenue School.
     It is my understanding the roof project at the Lawn Avenue School
will begin soon after school closes for the summer and the Lawn Avenue
School will not be available for this years summer playground.
     Matt and I are looking into alternative locations to continue this
program which in the past has had up to two hundred participants.

As scheduled, Fort Getty opened on May 17th.

Finance

The annual Town audit is proceeding ahead of schedule.
     The auditors anticipate completing fieldwork within the next week.
     A draft of the audit will be completed by the end of June with a
final audit report delivered in mid July.
     This is well in advance of the state-required deadline of August 30,
2001.

Planning

Town Planner Lisa Bryer is coordinating with Public Works Director Steve
Goslee and Chief Tighe the placement of several signs in the downtown area
to direct visitors to long term parking at Town Hall and along
Narragansett Avenue.
     Hopefully, this will alleviate some of the congestion we experience
each summer season at the waterfront.

Fire

Chief Arthur Christman reports there were thirty-one fire/rescue and
public service calls between May 7 through May 20, 2001.

Administration

Council President Settipane and I attended the state's unveiling of the
commemorative quarter at Fort Adams State Park on May 21, 2001.
     Later in the day we both meet with Ken Bianchi, Executive Director of
the RI Turnpike and Bridge Authority.
     During this preliminary meeting, the three of us discussed the
facilities needs of both governmental agencies and the possibility of
working together to meet both agencies needs.

I would suggest that at your earliest convenience, the Council consider
setting aside dates for a tour of Town facilities.
     You may also want to set dates for Council work sessions with certain
commission, boards and committees.
     I would recommend that within the next four to six weeks, you
establish workshops with the Quonset Davisville Committee, the Harbor
Commission, and the newly elected school committee.
     I will be more than happy to work with the Town Clerk to set up these
workshops.

Save the Bay is applying to CRMC for a permit to plant Eelgrass in
selected areas in the waters surrounding Jamestown.
     Save the Bay is requesting a letter of consent from the Town of
Jamestown to include with their application to CRMC.
     Save the Bay has assured the Town these plantings will not take place
in active mooring fields, navigation channels, or areas of known uses.
     I will review the sites selected by Save the Bay with the Harbor
Master and Chief Tighe.
     A letter of consent will be sent to Save the Bay after the review.

I received a request from the Central Baptist Church to use the Town Hall
parking lot and restroom for their annual Summer Fair.
     The restroom will be used as a changing room to try on clothes being
sold at the Fair.
     in the past the Town has granted permission to use the Town
facilities and I intend to grant permission again this year.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Jamestown Schools

The Town Administrator reported that the School Superintendent informed
her that school roof bids range from $420,000.00 to $540,000.00.  The
budgeted amount for repair to the roof was $300,000.00.  The Town
Administrator informed the Council that the School Committee will be
awarding the bid; however she did not have any other information at the
present time.
      It was the consensus of the Council that as additional information
is received, the Council be kept up to date.  

Water Restrictions

Councilor Swain noted the full capacity of the reservoir and inquired if
it would be possible to lift some of the water restrictions.
      The Town Administrator recommended that the water restrictions
remain in place through the early summer months; if the water supply is
still abundant after that, adjustments could then be made.
      It was the consensus of the Council that discussion regarding
restrictions be put on the agenda for the next Town Council meeting on
June 11, 2001.

request that the Tax Assessor provide a report reviewing the status of the

It was requested by Council President Settipane that the issue relating to
downtown parking be continued and placed on the agenda for the next Town
Council meeting on June 11, 2001.
      Councilor Settipane suggested that the establishment of a traffic
committee would allow for issues related to both parking and traffic to be
addressed at the same time.
       It was noted that the present Parking Committee could be
incorporated into the establishment of a Jamestown Traffic Committee (JTC)
and the charge broadened.  

Christopher Powell informed the Council that the Planning Commission
addresses these issues as well as completing the Comprehensive Community
Plan for the Town of Jamestown.

The Council discussed parking and traffic issues that have come before the
Council in the past and the need for a committee to address these issues.
      

Sterling Graham, Parking Committee member, suggested reviewing the charge
of the Parking Committee. 

It was the consensus of the Council that the current committee charge
should be reviewed with the thought of broadening the committee and

committee has fulfilled their charge.
      With the establishment of the Town Buildings and Facilities
Committee (TBFC) it was noted that the concerns relating to the highway
barn would be included in the parameter of the TBFC; therefore, it would
not be necessary to continue with the Highway Barn Committee.

that the function of the Street Light Committee is being handled
administratively.

Light Committee and to send letters of appreciation to those committee

Committee of this intention.
      There was additional discussion on the school budget, the need for
stronger communication, and possibly be holding workshops with the School
Committee.    

It was moved by Councilor Swain, seconded by Councilor Littman to direct
the Town Clerk to send a letter to the School Committee to inquire if they
would like a Council Liaison to be present at their meetings and if
workshops (not more than four (4) times per year) should be held.
      So unanimously voted.

order to provide some regulation in access of what RIDEM standards are for
