Board of Health

Minutes of Meeting - August 4, 2004

Members Present:   Joseph A. Kellogg, Chair, Marie V. Feder, Andrew J.  Breslin

Chair J. Kellogg called the meeting to order at 7:30 p.m. in the Lenox Town Hall. It was noted that the July meeting had been canceled.  Minutes of the June 3, 2004 meeting were reviewed and signed by all members.

Robert Barzottini was present with an application for a massage license.  The Board reviewed the application and determined that it contained the required information, subject to an acceptable background check by Tri-Town Health.   The signature page, however, was not available and it was agreed that, once the background check was completed, one of the members would sign, designating the Board’s approval.   

Rebecca (Devica) Elish was present with an application for a massage license, however it was not completed.  The Board reviewed all supporting documentation, and found such documents to be acceptable.  R. Elish said she would complete the application form and re-submit it for consideration.  

Patricia Lucciardi was present with an application for a massage license, however, the Board found that it was not fully completed.  P. Lucciardi was upset at the requirement that all questions be answered on the application form itself, but said she would fill out the noted sections and re-submit for the Board’s consideration.

The mail was read and included the following:

?       copy of letter from Peter Kolodziej, Tri Town Health, to Gregory Federspiel, Town Manager, asking for an update on the complaint received by the Selectmen relative to the lack of sanitary facilities at War Memorial Field
