DEDICATION 




JOHN WILLIAM PRINTY 

February 6, 1921 - February 28, 1995 



John and Rita moved to their Freshet Road home in Madbury in 1956. In 
1961 John was elected Treasurer for the Town of Madbury and continued 
to serve in that capacity until his death. He was a kind and generous man 
who felt a strong sense of civic duty. John was devoted to his family who 
shared his love for birds and animals, the beach, and his home and gardens. 
He was respected and loved by all who knew him. 

We dedicate this Town Report to the memory of John W. Printy in hopes 
that it will reflect our deep appreciation for his long time dedication to ser- 
vice and his contributions to the Town of Madbury.

dinances regarding HOME OCCUPATIONS, as proposed by 
the Madbury Planning Board. Sample ballot with total votes 
and complete text of the amendment on file in the Town Clerk's 
Office. 
Yes - 114 / No - 40 PASSED 

ARTICLE 5. Barbara Houston moved and Woodie Eraser seconded a mo- 
tion to authorize the Selectmen to choose all other Town Of- 
ficers. No discussion. PASSED 

ARTICLE 6. Alfred Grimes moved and Robert Wilson seconded a motion 
to raise and appropriate the sum of three thousand dollars 
($3,000) for the existing expendable Trust Fund known as the 
Madbury Memorial Park Fund created in Article 6 at the 1994 
Town Meeting and further to authorize the Selectmen to act 
as agents to withdraw and expend from this Trust Fund. Select- 
man Houghton explained that the cemetery is mostly completed 
and that this appropriation should complete the project. Three 
thousand dollars ($3,000) is recommended by the Board of 
Selectmen and included in the proposed budget. With no ques- 
tions from the audience a vote was taken. PASSED 



ARTICLE 7. Selectman Moriarty moved and Alfred Grimes seconded a mo- 
tion to raise and appropriate the sum of ten thousand dollars 
($10,000) for the existing Capital Reserve Fund created in Ar- 
ticle 8 at the 1994 Town Meeting for the purchase of a fire 
truck and further to authorize the Selectmen to act as agents 
to withdraw and expend from this Capital Reserve Fund. Mr. 



Moriarty explained that we already have set aside ten thou- 
sand dollars ($10,000) in this fund and we need to plan ahead 
and add to this for a future new fire truck. No questions. A 
vote was taken. PASSED 

ARTICLE 8. Selectman Moriarty moved and Woodie Eraser seconded a mo- 
tion to establish a Capital Reserve Fund under the provisions 
of RSA 35:1 for the purpose of reconstructing the intersection 
of Ereshet Road and State Route 108 and to raise and ap- 
propriate the sum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) to be placed 
in this fund and further to authorize the Selectmen to act as 
agents to withdraw and expend from this Capital Reserve Eund. 
Mr. Moriarty explained that this was going to be an expensive 
job so we should accumulate some funds to use in a few years. 
When asked why the State of NH is not addressing the pro- 
blem, Mr. Moriarty said that since most of the work actually 
needed to be done is on the Town owned portion of the in- 
tersection, the State has been reluctant to do anything. When 
asked WHEN the project will be done and for HOW MUCH, 
Mr. Moriarty could only guess in three years and for $60,000 
to $70,000. With no further discussion a vote was taken. 

PASSED 

ARTICLE 9. Selectman Hodsdon moved and Robert Wilson seconded a mo- 
tion to raise and appropriate, and authorize the Selectmen to 
spend up to the sum of twenty thousand dollars ($20,000) to 
purchase and equip a police cruiser. Mr. Hodsdon explained 
that Madbury's current cruiser is a 1987 with lots of miles and 
idling time on the engine. The Madbury Police Department 
is increasing its patrol time. The older cruiser will continue 
in use for as long as it is practical, but another and NEWER 
cruiser is definitely needed. With very few questions raised, 
a vote was taken. PASSED 

ARTICLE 10. Selectmen Bruce Hodsdon moved and Janet Wall seconded a 
motion to adopt the proposed budget for the current year of 
$603,791.00. The only questions asked were relative to which 
roads were scheduled to be paved or improved. Evans Road. 
Perkins Road and Cherry Lane are the ones expecting work 
on them in 1995. A vote was taken on the proposed budget 
of $603,791.00. PASSED 

ARTICLE 11. David Penniman moved and Joan Valentine seconded a motion 



10 



to discontinue the Revaluation of Properties in the Town of 
Madbury Capital Reserve Fund established in 1991. This fund 
was created for the revaluation of properties which is com- 
pleted. Said funds, with accumulated interest to date of 
withdrawal, are to be transferred to the Town's general fund. 
Selectman Houghton explained that there are approximately 
$5,000 left in this fund that needs approval at this meeting to 
move into the general fund. No questions. A vote was taken. 

PASSED 

ARTICLE 12. Craig Seaver moved and Barbara Houston seconded a motion 
that the Town vote the retention of the unexpended portion of 
the 1995 Conservation Commission appropriation, said monies 
to be placed in the Conservation Fund. Again no questions 
were asked. A vote was taken. PASSED 

ARTICLE 13. Selectman Moriarty moved and Joan Schreiber seconded a mo- 
tion to adopt the Amendment and Restatement of Lamprey 
Regional Cooperative, thereby remaining a member of the 
Lamprey Regional Cooperative for the purposes of handling, 
managing and disposing of municipal solid waste. Moriarty 
explained that Madbury has been a participating member of 
LRSWC for the past 15 years. He felt Madbury should stay 
involved with LRSWC to handle the financial and legal closure 
of its landfill in Somersworth and incinerator in Durham. Two- 
thirds of the current members of LRSWC must vote in the af- 
firmative if Lamprey is to continue. If the Cooperative stays 
together, there are commitments from other waste facilities to 
take our waste. If the Cooperative dissolves, each Town will 
be out for itself. There being no questions; a vote was taken. 

PASSED 

ARTICLE 14. Alfred Grimes, Chairman of the Cemetery Committee reported 
that twenty-two (22) cemetery lots have been sold; six plaques 
and granite posts have been purchased (four already in place 
and two on order). The site still needs some more shrubs, a 
gate and a sign. Any residents with ideas are urged to share 
them with the Cemetery Committee. 

ARTICLE 15. Supervisor of the Checklist Rosemary Raynes announced that 
Supervisor Lynda Gilbert just resigned her post due to a 
changed work schedule. The remaining two Supervisors must 
appoint someone to replace Gilbert until March 1996. Anyone

please notify the Town Office as soon as possible. 

Kitty Cornwell, President of the Madbury Community Club, 
announced that the Club will be sponsoring a town-wide pot 
luck supper to be held on April 2 from 5-7 p.m. at the 
Moharimet School. 

Priscilla Polichronopoulos introduced Madbury Day plans. 

Donald Melvin read a letter from the Durham Town Ad- 
ministrator soliciting interested people from Madbury to serve 
on a Fourth of July Celebration committee. Anyone interested

MADBURY VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT 
ANNUAL REPORT 

To the Residents of Madbury: 

The Fire Department responded to 129 calls in 1995, we had no major fires. 
We were busy with motor vehicle accidents, mutual aid to other towns and medical 
calls. 

"911" the emergency number for fire, police and ambulance calls is now being 
used in town. We would like to ask everyone to put house numbers on their mail 
boxes that can be read at night from emergency vehicles. The 911 system depends 
on this. 

We have added 3 new members this year, Judy Williams, Andrea Libby and 
Steve Tomany. We are fortunate to have these young people join. We are always 
looking for volunteers. We need daytime help (when Firemen are out of town 
or at work) for fire and FAST calls. If you are interested call or visit the fire 
department any time. 

In May we dedicated our new communications room in memory of William 
Morong. Bill was a long time supporter of the fire department and FAST squad. 
He helped in several fund-raisers and Madbury Day events. He was on the Water 
Board and was instrumental in starting the fire hydrant system on the Portsmouth 
pipe line. We were fortunate to have his support. This room was built with dona- 
tions in his memory. The department would like to thank the Morong Family 
for this much needed room. 

In April we lost a very dedicated firefighter, Willard Sanders. "Willy" had 
been a member for 35 years. He helped to build several additions and helped 
to maintain our fleet. If we had a project he was there with the tools. He was 
a Captain, a Director, Asst. Chief and our Chef on Madbury Day. 

He wanted to donate a chest of tools to the department but was to ill to attend 
a meeting and present them. After his death, his wife Marilyn said he wanted 
us to have his tools. We are very grateful, we now have about all the mechanics 
tools we will ever need. "Willy is gone, but not forgotten". I am thankful I have 
known Willard for 30 years. 

The Madbury Fire Department would like to thank all who participated in 
the Madbury Day celebration June 10. Committee members, Jenny Hickman, 
Paula Hodgkins, Donna Northover, Lorraine Morong, George Hickman and Dave 
Smith did an excellent job of organization and recruitment. They would appreciate 



37 



new people with new ideas next year. We need more town participation. 

This was Arthur Anderson s first year as "chef, he did such a good job we 
will recruit him again next year. 

The Fire Department held its Annual Christmas Party at the Gateway Restaurant 
on December 8th. It was well attended despite the weather. We enjoyed an ex- 
cellent meal. The town was well represented by Selectmen Joseph Moriarty and 
wife Barbara, Selectmen Richard Houghton and wife Gail, Town Administrative 
Assistant Diane Hodgson and Town Clerk Pam Seaver and husband Craig. Awards 
and certificates were presented. Richard Houghton was honored for his many 
contributions to the fire department and FAST squad. He recently presented the 
fire department with a new chain saw. Captain Bob Hodgson was presented a 
certificate for Life Membership in the department having completed 35 years 
of service. 

The "Fire Fighter of the Year" award was presented to Assistant Chief Arthur 
Anderson. Arthur has served over 15 years on the department in various posi- 
tions and offices. He has made an effort to answer as many calls as possible. 
He has participated in the building of two additions to the station. He has been 
my right hand man. He is this year's outstanding fire fighter and next year's Chief. 
Thank you Arthur for a job well done. 

This was my last year as Chief of your department, I have enjoyed 17 years 
as Chief and now feel it is time for a new "Chain of Command". I have seen 
many accomplishments in the last 17 years, a well and septic system, a phone 
system, a pager system, two additions, the organization of the FAST squad, a 
hydrant system started, two new fire trucks, rebuilt the forestry truck, a new 
communications room and the start of the 911 system. We can be proud of these 
accomplishments. I would like to thank the town for their support in taxes and 
donations for these projects, also the Selectmen and town officials for their con- 
sideration and cooperation throughout the years. It has been an experience I will 
not forget. I hope you will have the same relationship with my successor. I will 
continue on with the fire department in what ever capacity they choose. After 
33 years of service it is hard to break away completely. 

The fire department has received several donations throughout the year and 
would like to thank Houghton's Hardware, Hanscom's Truck Stop and various 
people in town. We appreciate your support. Thank you. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Kenneth Wolcott

REPORT OF TOWN FOREST FIRE WARDEN 
AND STATE FOREST RANGER 

In calendar year 1995, our three (3) leading causes of fires were Children, 
Non-Permit fires not properly extinguished and Smoking Materials. 

Violations of RSA 224:27 II, the fire permit law, and the other burning laws 
of the State of New Hampshire are misdemeanors punishable by fines of up to 
$2,000 and/or a year in jail. Violators are also liable for all fire suppression costs. 

To aid your Forest Fire Warden, Fire Department and State Forest Fire Of- 
ficials, contact your local Warden or Fire Department to find out if a permit 
is required. This also helps to prevent unnecessary response to a controlled burn.

MADBURY FAST SQUAD REPORT 

The Madbury FAST Squad has had a quiet year with 58 calls. 

There are some new faces on the FAST squad. Membership now includes Lisa 
Keiski, Steve Tomany, Andrea Libby and Jennifer Perley. Only the latter two 
reside in Madbury. 

Occasionally there will be a call in Madbury in which there are no available 
FAST personnel. We are trying to get a licensure classifed as rescue so that Fire 
Department personnel who are EMT's, but cannot be members of the Durham 
Ambulance corps for other reasons, are protected for their response. Another 
means of addressing this issue is encouraging members of the community to 
become EMT's and help themselves and their community. 

There will be a spring time CPR and First Aid course for those interested. 
Please contact Lisa Keiski at 749-1188. 

We had a successful year with thanks to your contributions and big Madbury 
Day. Yard sale and food auction 1996 are just 90 days away! And yes, I had a 
wonderful adventure at Mt. McKinley base camp in Alaska. 

Again thank you and to the best of your health.

MADBURY POLICE DEPARTMENT 

Many changes have taken place this year. The Madbury Police Department 
has now located office space in the rear of the Town Hall on the parking lot side. 

This year Madbury Police covered over 670 calls through November 1st. Calls 
to Police have shown a large increase over the last two years. 

Madbury now has five part-time Officers: Sergeant David Cobban, Patrolmen, 
Nicholas Boulter, Christopher Mangum and Kevin Snyder and Animal Control 
Officer Susan Snyder. 

The Business phone for messages is 742-5566. Emergency Numbers: Emergen- 
cy 911 and Durham Dispatch 862-1212. 

With the purchase of a 1995 Ford Cruiser through the State bid process and 
the additional Officers. Madbury Police now has limited Patrol throughout the 
Town on a weekly basis. 

I would like to remind residents to number homes or mailboxes with 3 inch 
numbers so Police Officers and other emergency people can locate homes easily. 
We also encourage neighborhood watch policy, enabling residents to call in 
suspicious vehicles and people, etc. using the new 911 emergency number. This 
has been very effective in past years. Also, residents going on vacation should 
call the dispatch with dates and time you will be away. This will enable the Police 
Patrol to check your home periodically.

MADBURY PLANNING BOARD 

The Madbury Planning Board met 21 times in 1995. We are a volunteer board 
appointed by the Selectmen for terms of three years. Deborah Zarembo was ap- 
pointed as the newest member. Stephen Schuster was re-appointed and Ric 
Erickson became an alternate after serving many years as a member, including 
several as secretary. 

This year only one lot was subdivided, creating two lots. We had three 
preliminary discussions about potential subdivisions. We also, on request, clarified 
decisions of previous boards pertaining to four earlier subdivisions. 

We met with several landowners, at their request, to discuss the nature and 
extent of the commercial use of residential property. The new home occupation 
section of the residential agriculture zoning ordinance was applied twice. One 
application, an automotive brokerage service, was determined to be a Level I 
use with no permit required. The other, a craft studio, was a Level II use and 
a conditional use permit was approved. 

Other topics of discussion were the new Shoreland Protection Act, the siting 
of Lamprey Regional Solid Waste Cooperative's proposed transfer station, heavy 
trucking through Madbury, and digitizing of the composite tax map for planning 
purposes. 

Our main planning effort this year was the major revision of the Capital Im- 
provements Plan (CIP). Using the goals set forth in the Madbury Master Plan, 
the board developed a program of capital improvements over the next six years 
and recommends the plan to the selectmen for their consideration as part of the 
annual budget. The board met with town officials. Members Joan Sundberg, Karen 
Houston and Lucy Tillman examined records of recent years' revenue and ex- 
penditures. Projections of population growth, operating expenses, and revenue 
were made. The board considered the recent major purchases of land in the civic 
district, the evolving needs for community services, and the fact that the long 
term debt will be paid in the next few years. Then we made our best effort to 
write a plan which balances stability with progress.

MADBURY CEMETERY TRUSTEES' REPORT 

The Cemetery Trustees spent time this year in reviewing the progress made 
to date and evaluating this against the sought after goals. This is the first year 
that the Cemetery Committee members were elected to the positions of Cemetery 
Trustees. 

The following is an overview of the Madbury Cemetery operations: 

1. Trust Funds and accounts were established. They consisted of the Com- 
mon Trust Fund for long term care. The Expendable Trust for improvements 
and maintenance and the Bank Account for operational expenses. 

2. A granite sign for the Cemetery is on order and will be erected in the spring. 

3. The main entrance gate plans are being studied and the purchase and place- 
ment is anticipated in 1996. 

4. Additional Memorial Bronze Plaques were mounted on the granite posts. 
This prompted the addition of four more granite posts and will help complete 
the posts and chain fence toward the main entrance gate. 

5. As of December 31, 1995, twenty-four lots have been purchased. 

6. The burials of three long time residents of Madbury took place during 
the year 1995. 

7. There were additions of shrubbery and trees to our landscaping. The 
Trustees wish to thank Carol Loughlin who has overseen the long range project 
of landscaping the Madbury Cemetery. 

The Cemetery Trustees wish to thank the Town for the mowing and care of 
the Cemetery this past year. Also, a thank you to all the people who have helped 
us with ideas and suggestions. We appreciate and look forward to everyone's en- 
couragement and support.

MADBURY CONSERVATION COMMISSION 
ANNUAL REPORT 1995 

Trail work has been the most obvious accomplishment of the MCC this year, 
at least to anyone who frequents the trails out behind the town hall. A grant 
from PSNH and two days of volunteer labor from the UNH Cycling team allow- 
ed the completion of trail improvements in the Hicks Hill area. A system of switch- 
backs now eases the plunge down the east side of Hicks Hill and a relocation 
keeps the footing dry at its base. 

The Commission made a number of visits to the Bolstridge Woods property 
in company with various experts, all with an eye to the creation of a manage- 
ment plan. As of town meeting the preliminary plan should be completed. At 
present the parcel seems best suited to wildlife habitat, and management should 
aim to maintain and enhance habitat quality and variety. Trails are an attractive 
possibility, but should be sited to avoid wetland damage and wildlife disturbance. 
Forest management will only become an issue after a few decades of regeneration. 

Work creeps ahead on the revision of 1985's Inventory of Properties Owned 
by the Town ofMadbury. Writeups tor all town-owned parcels are complete; now 
editing and map production remain to be done. 

Also on the Agenda in recent months has been the possibility of getting digitized 
maps produced which would show property boundaries and trails along with 
natural features. 

Other commission work involved attendance at some Planning Board meetings, 
and the Oyster River Watershed Nonpoint Pollution project, consideration of 
two dredge and fill permit applications, both by NHDOT in conection with 
highway work, and the completion of the fifth annual monitoring of the Fernald 
Easement. 

Townspeople may feel free to bring their concerns and comments to the com- 
mission, either by letter or by attending the meetings on the fourth Monday at 7:30. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Craig R. Seaver, Chairman

MADBURY HISTORICAL SOCIETY 

ANNUAL REPORT 

October 1994 - October 1995 

During the year past, October 1994 to the present, members of the Historical 
Society continued their interest and support of Madbury through local projects 
and programs. 

The membership approved the expenditure of funds to pay for the restoration 
and binding of old town reports (1870 - 1900). 

The Society continues to add to its archives, enriched this year by thirty volumes 
of State Papers and hundreds of surveyors books found during the renovation 
of the fire house, as well as many photos of the 1968 Bicentennial celebration 
from Dick Merritt and copies of old railroad photos belonging to Richard Colprit. 

Care of the graveyards continues, this year's effort accomplished on the first 
Saturday in May. A future project could deal with the removal of large trees 
in various plots. 

A varied selection of programs entertained the membership. In November, Gary 
Samson spoke on Franco-American Culture in New Hampshire and showed his 
film on the subject. April's program featured Jason Hindle, a Dover High School 
senior, whose portrait of Franklin Pierce, New Hampshire's only contribution 
to the Presidency, was thorough and informative. A visit to the Franklin Pierce 
Manse in Concord in July tied in with this program. 

The October and January programs provided by members highlighted the skills 
available among the Society's members. In keeping with the Halloween spirit, 
the program focused on ghostly tales: readings by Dave Smith, Lorraine Morong 
and Joyce Wood. January's program took us on a tour of Scotland's Outer Hebrides 
with Lorraine Morong. 

Programs developed by members continued through November 1995.

Eileen Corrow

DURHAM AMBULANCE CORPS 
Town Report 1995 

The Durham Ambulance Corps is a private, non-profit, volunteer service that 
has provided 24-hour emergency ambulance service to Durham, Lee. Madbury 
and the University of New Hampshire since 1968 in memory of Dr. George G. 
McGregor. Staffed with volunteers, and one full-time Manager, the Corps has 
greatly improved its level of patient care from the minimal services of Advanced 
First Aid in 1968, to the various levels of Advanced Life Support currently pro- 
vided. The Durham Ambulance Corps takes pride over a quarter century tradi- 
tion of providing some of the most sophisticated and progressive emergency care 
in the area. 

1995 was a record breaking year for the DAC with 880 responses to emergen- 
cy medical calls. There were 326 calls in Durham (37%), 326 calls to the UNH 
campus (37%), 152 calls in Lee (17.3%), 55 calls in Madbury (6.3%) and 21 
mutual aid calls to other communities (2.4%). 

ACHIEVEMENTS IN 1995 

We established a program for training members in Tuberculosis and Respiratory 
Protection as required by OSHA. Each member receives annual refresher train- 
ing in Infection Control including TB, Hazardous Materials, and Respiratory 
Protection. 

The Corps held a very successful fund drive to raise money for our Building 
Fund with $10,000 raised and additional donations still being received. 

The Corps evaluated patient billing, which has been very well received by our 
patients. Revenues in excess of the budgeted amount directly offset appropria- 
tions from the communities DAC serves. We continue to have a program to waive 
balances for those patient's who cannot afford to pay their bill. No patient is 
denied service due to outstanding balance or inability to pay. 

Initial member training and promotional training has been streamlined. 

GOALS FOR 1996 

Renovate and expand the existing DAC Station to meet our needs tor the next 
5-10 years, with plans for major reconstruction or move into new quarters within 
10 years. The capital improvements station renovation fund will partly fund 
renovation/construction . 



48 



We will explore community needs for additional services such as stand-by 
coverage, non emergency transfers, and mobile health care. If such services are 
necessary we will explore funding options that do not increase appropriations 
from the communities we serve. 

Recruit permanent area residents for active membership to alleviate person- 
nel shortages when UNH is not in session. 

Quality Improvement: Evaluate the quality of service the Corps provides by 
sending service evaluation forms to patients and evaluating the results. 

We owe a great deal of thanks to the communities and citizens of Durham, 
Lee, Madbury and UNH for their continued support, and especially tor their 
generous response to our fund raising efforts. We would also like to thank the 
Durham, Lee, and Madbury Fire Departments, the Durham-UNH Communica- 
tions Center and the Durham, UNH, Lee and Madbury Police Departments for 
their support. Most of all, we would like to thank all the DAC volunteers for 
their many hours of dedicatd service. 

Respectfully submitted.

ANNUAL SUMMARY OF MADBURY WATER BOARD 
ACTIVITIES - 1995 

The primary effort of the Water Board this year was sampling and then testing 
waters for pesticides and other similar contaminants. Samples were taken 
downstream or downgradient from locations in Town where such chemicals were 
historically used or suspected to have been used. The results of the analyses show- 
ed no such chemicals detected. 

In other business, the Water Board continued to monitor the progress of the 
remediation of ground water contamination at Madbury Metals. A few years ago 
it was discovered that contamination was moving easterly from Madbury Metals 
to the Dover wells that are located in Madbury. Since that time, ground water 
studies have evaluated the extent of contamination and a system has been install- 
ed that pumps ground then treats it. The system will be operating for a number 
of years. 

Lastly some high nitrate levels were recently observed in ground water samples 
from wells located off of Freshet Road. This may be investigated further in future 
years. 



LAMPREY REGIONAL COOPERATIVE 

In 1995. we experienced many changes to the Lamprey Regional Cooperative. 
The Lamprey Regional Cooperative amended and restated their agreement on 
August 14, 1995. The Lamprey Regional Cooperative also ceased operations of 
the Waste-to -Energy plant on November 20, 1995. In December 1995, a contract 
was awarded for demolition of the Waste-to-Energy plant. Demolition began on 
December 7, 1995 and is scheduled to be completed in February 1996. We will 
be closing and capping our Ash Landfill in Somersworth in 1996 and it appears 
at this time that this also will come within our budgeted closure funds. 

The Waste-to-Energy plant was operated under budget again in 1995 and we 
did not experience any major problems in the operating year. 

We have made progress toward our goal of a Regional Transfer and Recycling 
Facility in early 1996 for the communities that have decided to remain in the 
Lamprey Regional Cooperative into the future. 

I would like at this time to thank all of the communities for their cooperation 
in the operation of our Waste-to-Energy plant the last fifteen years. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Joseph Moriarty, Chairman of Board 

Lamprey Regional Cooperative
