The selectmen met on Wednesday, July 24, for its second meeting of the month. The topic of unpaid taxes was on the agenda. After some discussion, the selectmen decided that manufactured housing properties that are scheduled to be deeded to the town on July 29 at noon would be waived and taken to small claims court for a judgment.
The selectmen will meet with the representatives from the New Hampshire Tax Deed and Auction to see how this works when the state sells its tax deeded property in the near future.
Dale McConkey came to the meeting to present plans for septic approval for three new homes in The Moats.
The selectmen learned from a conference call that their FLAP (Federal Land Access Program) application was on the top of the list for the state of New Hampshire approval. Once approved, the repair project on Passaconaway Road can be started.
Now that the Carroll County Broadband Committee is in full swing, Steve Knox and Rick Hiland have been named as Albany’s representatives as well as co-chairs of the committee.
Mary Leavitt has informed the selectmen that due to family medical problems she will be retiring from her many-year post as Albany town treasurer at the end of this month. Her retirement was accepted with regret and a letter so stating will be sent to her. Chuck Merrow will take her post.

Stan and Dorothy Solomon had the pleasure of showing off their home and beauty of the valley in which they live this past week. Dorothy’s nephew, Arnold and his wife Lucy, (who live in New York City) are vacationing in and around Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. They were entranced with what they had seen and plan on coming back to see more. The only drawback to this lovely visit was that Stan and Dorothy’s beloved dog, Sir Lancelot, died on July 13 due to old age and could not accompany the four as they toured the area. He is already missed by many, especially the Solomons.
