The public comment that has already been received will be compiled for board members, Dunford said, and as usual, the public will be allowed to make additional comments on the matter.

But, Dunford said, according to the town charter, the board of selectmen has no oversight of the board of health. Nevertheless, he said, he is looking forward to the discussion and hearing what his fellow board members have to say on the issue.
