PUBLIC COMMENT:
 
George Hebert, 40 Masten Avenue, “I believe there is a situation that has arisen, that you may be un-aware of, regarding the trains cutting through the city and stopping for an accident.  This separates the island from the rest of the city.  If a disaster like that were to ever happen, it would result in our firefighting abilities being cut in half.  Only foam could be used on this type of disaster, which is kept in 5 gallon cans.  This type of disaster would require a large amount of foam, if more than one tanker is involved.  There would be an added expense to the city to have foam kept in departments on both sides of the tracks.  I don’t believe the city should be on the hook to purchase this foam.  There should be some way that Global Partners should have to pay for any extra expense to municipalities.”
 
Council Member Signoracci, “I know that Chief Fahd is in the process of update the emergency preparedness plan, could we incorporate this into that plan?”
 
Mayor Primeau, “One of the big things going on right now, is because of the attention of the tanker cars beginning to come through this way.  There are a couple of meetings this March to address this with the County and State.”
 
At 7:25 PM, with no further public comments being made, Council Member Signoracci made a MOTION to adjourn into executive session to discuss a personal matter.  Seconded by Council Member Turcotte.  All members voted “AYE”.  The motion passed.
