The following is a preview of the Aug. 26 Wayland Board of Selectman's meeting from the town:
The Board of Selectmen will meet on Monday, August 26, 2013 in Wayland Town Building beginning at 6:30 p.m. in executive session to discuss mid-term bargaining with the police union, contract negotiations with firefighters, and strategy with respect to litigation between the Town, Wastewater Management District Commission and Twenty Wayland.
The public session will begin at approximately 7:00 p.m. After reviewing the meeting agenda for the viewing public and making any announcements, Selectmen will listen to public comment.
At approximately 7:10 p.m., the Board will interview citizens interested in appointment to fill vacancies on various boards and committees. Massimo Taurisano will be considered for the Permanent Municipal Building Committee and Sarah Greenaway will interview for the Youth Advisory Committee. The Board will also consider the request of the Senior Property Tax Relief advisory panel to reduce the number of members from nine to seven, recognizing the difficulty of finding citizens willing to serve and the challenge of achieving a quorum for posted meetings.
Selectmen will then review the town administrator employment agreement and job description in preparation for conducting his annual performance evaluation.

The planned improvements to the intersection at West Plain Street would be unchanged by the revised agreement.
Then, the Board will review and approve the regulatory agreement between the Town, the state Department of Housing and Community Development and Habitat for Humanity for the affordable housing project on Stonebridge Road.
Next, Selectmen will consider the consent calendar, review correspondence, and listen to the report of the Town Administrator, including a review of pending matters and upcoming meeting agenda topics. Selectmen will then offer their reports and concerns, including consideration of a mutual aid agreement for public works services, discussion on Selectmen goals andpriorities for the year beginning October 1, 2013, and the Board meeting schedule and key dates related to a special town meeting tentatively planned for Wednesday, November 20.
