Notes from the meeting:

Old Business
1. Londonderry Presbyterian Church Softball

 - Due to the holiday schedule the group will appear at the January meeting

2. Request for Impact fees for lights at LAFA
 - LAFA www.lafa.info has received quotes of $45,000-100,000 dollars to install lights on the Girls softball field. LAFA will be meeting with PSNH on Wednesday to get an estimate of the cost to run power to the field. The Commission will wait until the final estimate is in before requesting Impact Fees from the Town to fund the project. Construction is not expected to start until spring.
 
3. Skate Park - Bicycles
- The commission discussed allowing bicycles to be used on the skate board park. Concerns of safety and liability issues were addressed. Commissioner's noted many other towns allow bicycles on there parks.

4. Tractor Update- The Commission has budgeted for a utility tractor for field maintenance. The Town has suggested the Commission take the DPW tractor which is being sold. Members noted that the Town tractor was much larger than what was needed and would require new tires designed to limit damage to the turf on the ball fields. It was also discussed that the larger tractor would be difficult to tow with a pickup truck. Since tractors maintain a high trade in value it may be more cost effective to purchase a new smaller tractor than the old larger Town tractor.

New Business
1. Budget

The Town Manager has asked the Commission to remove $5,000 from it budget. The cuts would entail:
$1,000 from the Summer program at North School
$1,500 reduction in water use
$2,500 cut in part-time salaries

Other Business
1. LAFA will be holding sign ups on Jan 13, and 20th (9:00AM - 1:00PM) and Jan 24th (6:00-8:00PM) at the LMS Cafe. www.lafa.info

2. Londonderry Basketball Update.
- LBC has approximately 890 kids signed up. A total of 90 teams in the program. There are a few spots left. Anyone interested in playing can show up at LMS this coming Sunday or contact LBC www.lbchoops.org

3. Londonderry Lacrosse held it's yearly elections there were a few changes to the officers. www.londonderrylax.org

4. Londonderry Basketball has completed most of the paper work to be sanctioned by the Recreation Commission. LBC expect to appear in January with the last few remaining items specifically Articles of Agreement and the final enrollment numbers. www.lbchoops.org

5. The Commission discussed briefly what documents would be required to be resubmitted by Rec teams on a yearly basis. Members noted that some documents such as bylaws and articles of agreement do not change frequently and may not be required to be submitted annually.

6.  Council Liaison Tom Dolan was asked about the Towns requirement for recreation teams to provide liability insurance. Councilor Dolan noted that although the topic had been discussed recently some clarification was needed. He would contact the Town Managers office and would like a representative from the Town insurance provider to attend a future meeting to address questions. Art Psaledas noted that the cut-off was any Rec group that had a board of directors was required to provide it's own liability insurance. Another Commissioner noted that since the Town is requiring some recreation groups to be sanctioned and form board of directors that the Town should provide insurance. Councilor Dolan also stated that Rec groups may benefit from a discount based on a larger group rate. Councilor Dolan will contact the Town Manager for clarification on which groups are required to carry individual liability policies.

Meeting adjourned at approximately 8:30
