The meeting, which will begin at 6 p.m., will be held at the Gilford High School Library instead of the SAU office, where the board typically meets. The change of location allows more room for public attendance. Kurt Webber, board chair, had stated at a board meeting on March 22 that the board would soon release a official statement detailing why it intends to continue its current form of organization. However, he said yesterday that the board’s statements on the matter had been criticized for being “one-sided,” and the decision to instead present its position at a public meeting was intended to accommodate a “discussion” including those who are anticipated to bring differing interpretations of the events. see GILFOrd page 11 see rECyCLING page 10 May not be combined with other discounts.

The asking price is $1,695,000. Board Chairman Ronald I. Sibley made the announcement on Friday, saying an initial decision to sell, last year, by the board was temporarily put on hold until economic conditions improved. Incorporators, volunteers and donors were informed during the annual meeting last fall that the sale was pending. Sibley said that at its most recent meeting in March, the board decided it was time for the property to be marketed so it could be available during the warmer months.
