Town Council Meeting – March 7th
Town Council President James Crocker opened last night’s Town Council Meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance and Moment of Silence.  Next was Public Comment.  Town Manager Mark Ells provided updates on the following items for the period of March 1-7, 2019 during Town Manager Communications:

1.       Chris Nappi, Natural Resources Officer has been working with Eversource to install new osprey platforms in areas of concern.  They have installed four platforms to date on Church Street, Craigville Beach Road, Routes 28 & 149, and Short Beach Road.  We are working on more in anticipation of the spring nesting season. 

2.       We are proceeding with the tasks in the budget action calendar for FY 2020 as scheduled.  Our annual finance audit reports have come back with a clean opinion.  The Capital Improvements Plan will receive a first reading tonight and second readings with Public Hearings begin on April 4, 2019.

  1. We are awaiting word from Mass Fish & Wildlife as to future discussions regarding the future potential to siting water supply wells on the 250-acre parcel owned by the Commonwealth that directly abuts the Hyannis public water supply.  The Town desires to continue working with Mass Fish & Wildlife to finalize an agreement that would enable the Town to install public water supply wells on the 250-acre Hyannis Ponds Wildlife Management Area (WMA).  Mass Fish & Wildlife responded on February 7, 2019 as a result of the government shutdown USGS was delayed in proceeding with the review of the most recent information from Barnstable.  Once a response to the most recently proposed scenarios is received from USGS, Mass Fish & Wildlife anticipates moving forward with their review.  A tentative meeting has been planned for the week of March 18th.

4.       Barnstable Youth Commission’s successful Job Fair (please see lead story).

5.       MassDOT is hosting open house On March 27, 2019 for the Iyannough Road (Route 28) and Yarmouth Road Intersection Improvement Project in Barnstable (please see below for more information).

6.       In an effort to keep in step with changing demands in the cemetery industry/business and seeking more environmentally responsible cemetery development, the Town of Barnstable cemetery program is identifying new burial areas for what is called green or natural burials.  This rising trend of green burials parallels an increased concern for the environment.  A draft proposal was provided to the Town Council for review and comment.

7.       The Town of Barnstable is hosting a community planning event (March 29, 2019) to explore how we are impacted by natural hazards and to develop a comprehensive strategy to reduce potential risks, improve our ability to recover quickly after major hazard events, and improve our overall resilience.  Through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness process, the participants will explore current and future vulnerabilities to our infrastructure, community, and environment resulting from natural hazards and changing climate conditions and develop and prioritize municipal and community response actions (please see below for more information).

8.       Mr. Ells continues to monitor the implementation of the Cape Cod and Islands Water Protection Funds.  The Town of Barnstable has to have their selection of a Management Board representative by April 1st.   Discussions continue on the duties on the Management Board, specifically does the Board simply review funds deposited from each municipality against equitable redistribution of said funds to the communities from which the funds were generated or does the Board have greater discretionary authority to redistribute said funding.  Mr. Ells prepared a draft resolve for the Town Council’s consideration as an agenda item on March 21, 2019 to appoint Barnstable’s representative on this Board.  He also included a matrix illustrating actions taken in other communities participating on this Board.

The Town Council next discussed the of appointment of the Barnstable member to the Cape and Islands Water Protection Fund Management Board and Town Manager Mark Ells’ name will be put forward at the March 21, 2019 Town Council meeting.  Assistant Town Attorney Charles McLaughlin introduced Alan Mandl, Esquire, who made a presentation regarding Municipal Permitting of Wireless Communications Facilities.

Donald Gauland, Ink Painter, Art Exhibit at Barnstable Town Hall, 2nd Floor meeting rooms now through April 18th, 2019

The "Art on Loan" program displays the works of local artists on meeting room walls in Barnstable Town Hall.   Artwork by Donald Gauland is now on display in the Barnstable Town Hall, through April 18, 2019. 

Donald Gauland is a self-taught artist and a passionate student of Eastern philosophy, who works principally in colored inks on mulberry paper and acrylic on canvas.  Donald’s artistic journey began 1985 with watercolor collages.  A life-long interest in Eastern philosophies and his practice of T'ai Chi Ch'uan and Chi Kung, he was inspired to work in ink and paint abstract expressions.  He paints with “chi (energy), jing (essence) and shen (spirit) to create abstract images of growth, stability, and balance.” Each original painting is signed and dated with the Chinese year and stamped with his artistic seal.  In addition to painting, Donald plays alto sax and percussion in the Barnstable Town Band, as well as in the Cape Cod Concert Band and Cape Community Orchestra.  He also enjoys improvisatory Irish sessions playing bodhran and rhythm bones.  You will find Donald on the Hyannis Village Green every Wednesday in July and August during the Barnstable Town Band concerts. Donald and his wife will be in the Hyannis HyArts Artist shanties for a stay in June and then again in September.  His wife Janet is a percussionist in the Barnstable Town band and is an artist as well, channeling her creativity as a jewelry designer.  The Barnstable Town Hall exhibit is open to the public and on display now through April 18, 2019, in the Barnstable Town Hall Hearing Room and Selectmen’s Conference Room, 2nd Floor, Barnstable Town Hall, 367 Main Street, Hyannis.  There is complimentary parking in the Town Hall parking lot.
