D. Public Comment:

Thomas Clement asked to speak to the Board of Selectmen regarding the new parking lot light. In the opinion of Mr. Clement, the light is too powerful for the size parking lot. The light shines onto his house and beyond. After discussing this matter the solution will be a shield will be customized to be installed over the light. The shield can be adjustable to angle down just on the parking lot. Mr. Clement is willing to design the shield free of charge and the Town will have someone install it on the light.
