EASTON, Conn. A ride to school in an Easton fire truck was auctioned off at at recent charity event, prompting the Board of Selectmen to ask if that's an approptiate use of a town asset. The topic has been placed on the agenda of the board's meeting Thursday night.
A recent Easton Learning Foundation fundraiser offered a ride for a child and three friends from their home to school in an Easton fire truck. The results of the auction have yet to be disclosed, but the minimum bid was $275.
First Selectman Thomas Herrmann said the board will discuss whether a policy needs to be in place that determines when uses of town assets are appropriate.
Herrmann said he wasnt quite sure what action the board might take during Thursday nights meeting. He said he simply wanted to discuss the issue and get a sense of what the board deems is an appropriate action.
According to the agenda, the board is also expected to discuss possible approval of a vender for the purchase of maintenance sand for the winter, an update on the animal shelter construction project and discussion and possible action on the policy for hiring independent contractors or relatives of employees.
The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Town Hall conference room, located at 225 Center Road.
