Motion was made to adopt the Town’s Comprehensive Leave Policy with the modification of maximum accrual from 1040 hours to 448 hours. Thereby encouraging employees to take vacations however if employees have the maximum hours at the close of fiscal year they will be paid out at their base salary amount.

VI. Consideration of Rental Uses at Meridian Court
Meridian Court, MLH’s first development project, was designed with a variety of unit sizes from one to three bedrooms. MLH has learned from the sale of Meridian Court that the one bedroom units are in less demand for purchase and hence several are still available for sale. The Board directed staff to continue efforts in selling the remaining units and to offer Homebuyer Assistance funds. MLH staff will report to the Board with an update at the regularly schedule October meeting.
