DEDICA TION 

Selectmen Paul Safidi and Paul Binette 

It is a little unusual to dedicate a Town Report to a sitting Selectman, much less two, but in this 
case the Town has two Selectmen that need to be celebrated: Paul Scafidi and Paul Binette. 
They are celebrated not as Selectmen, but for what their position as Selectman has allowed each 
to do for Exeter. 

Seeing the need for a maintenance building for the Recreation Department, and several years of 
problems funding its construction, Paul Binette questioned why the job could not be done by 
volunteers. Harkening to the bam raising days of the past and reminding folks that Exeter is the 
kind of Town where a bam raising ought not to be a thing of the past, he volunteered, along with 
Selectman Paul Scafidi. to lead an effort to get the maintenance building built. 

Plans were quickly prepared and a list of materials completed. With the list in hand, Paul put the 
word out to local building supply companies, and foundation and electrical contractors that the 
Town could use their help. He also began the process of lining up the labor to do the work. He 
even went so far as to get local restaurants to pitch-in and provide lunch. He didn't miss an op- 
portunity to get people involved in the project. 

And people got involved. With all of the material needed for the job either donated or sold at 
cost, the foundation was poured and a week later the building was up thanks to all those volun- 
teers and Paul's leadership. 

Qi October 21st. 1996. Exeter saw that 100 year stomi that no one ever expects to experience. 
Residents were forced from their homes, basements flooded, the power went out, and most devas- 
tating of all, the Town's water treatment plant went down. A perfect opportunit}' for panic, recri- 
mination and finger pointing. It didn't happen. 

llie Town had plans for this kind of emergency, and was prepared at least for those aspects of the 
crisis that local govemment can address. Equipment was dispatched, public safety personnel did 
their jobs with the usual professionalism, and the first steps to recovery were initiated. Through- 
out this process, Paul Scafidi shared his opinions and wisdom with those in the Emergency Opera- 
tions Center. As "Water Czar", with Paul Binette's help, he organized and lead the effort to bring 
drinking water to Town to supplement the limited supply in the pipes. 

He quickl) realized that while the Ibwn was implementing plans for recovery', the traditional 
vva\ s of sharing news of what was going on were simply not adequate. There was simply too 
much going on and the rumor mill was grinding at its best. 

Recognizing that getting information out in a timely manner had to be a top priority, he suggested 
that the Tov^n cable TV channel be used. And so for the next 5 evenings at 5:00 Paul hosted a 
TV program that provided residents with the latest word on the flood, recover)' efforts and the 



water emergency. The program proved to be a hit, with many residents remarking that it was the 
only source of detailed information during the entire crises. 

The actions of both Pauls are perfect examples of what committed public officials can do. They 
exemplify the concept of Selectmen as dedicated community leaders. They used their positions 
to lead change, to recognize when change was needed and, as a result, made Exeter a better place.

THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

Nineteen Ninety Six was an exciting and challenging year for the town. Exeter was an exciting 
place from the month of Januar>' to the month of December. We were asked to handle all dif- 
ferent and, in some cases, catastrophic events. From the record snow fall to the Presidential 
election to the great flood: 1996 was a year to remember and one that will go down in our his- 
tor>' books. 

Exeter has changed while remaining the same great community it has always been. Our town 
meeting form of government has been altered to allow for ballot voting on all articles. After over 
350 years of town meeting deciding the issues, the voting booth will now determine how we 
govern. The privacy of the voting booth takes the place of the public meeting vote. 

CXir new communications center at the Public Safety Complex is in and operational. A wonderful 
upgrade for everyone! Our new phone system is in place throughout the town and our re-evalua- 
tion is progressing through its final stages. 

In 1996, Exeter saw some new housing developments take shape. Planning Director Peter Dow 
and Building Inspector Doug Eastman will be extremely busy in 1997, as Exeter is once again 
growing. With well over 100 new sites being discussed throughout the Town, the departments 
will be working very hard. 

The Town Clerk, Linda Hartson Macomber. and her staff have experienced another year of 
growth. With all the changes in how we do "business" in Exeter, the Town Clerk's office is 
always busy. Every aspect of the office has seen an increase, from dog licenses to car registra- 
tions, all are up over 1995. Congratulations to Linda for being elected President of the NH City 
& Town Clerks' Association. The Town Clerk's offices does a great job. 

The Fire Department has once again proved that Exeter has a department that is second to none. 
E^ch shift has a paramedic on board and, with the addition of our new ambulance, their efforts to 
react as quickly as possible to an emergency is enhanced. We are proud of the work that they do. 
Chief John Carbonneau and the department continue to shine. 

The Police Department, led by Chief Jim Gilmore. continue to provide services above and beyond. 
The personnel of the department are professional and caring. They provide a safe presence 
throughout the community, whether it is helping with a small or large problem. The exciting 
event of the \ear. at least as far as the kids are concemed, was the institution of the Police Trad- 
ing Cards. lEach officer was presented on a baseball-like trading card, and watching the kids 
collect and trade the cards was great ftin. 

The Department of Public Works was as busy as any public works could be in a 12-month period. 
From the heavy snows of the winter months to the heavy rains of the fall, the department was 
pushed to its limits, but never broke. Director Keith Noyes and all the personnel of the depart- 
ment should be commended for a job \ er\ well done. 

The Exeter Parks & Recreation Department is once again leading the seacoast in every area. The 
department continues to see growth in all activities. Every youth event, up to every senior event.

is always filled. Our hats off to Doug Dicey and his staff for always providing new and 
innovative events. The department not only handles recreation but takes care of our parks and 
cemeteries. Thanks! 

The Assessor's Office is starting to put the final touches on our new CIS program and re-evalua- 
tion. John DeVittori and Betty Quinn are getting the town maps and sites up to the newest stan- 
dards which will provide an even better service. Thanks to both. 

With the addition of a new Finance Director to our staff. Exeter welcomed David Jodoin. Dave 
comes trom AUenstown. NH. where he was Administrative Assistant to the Selectmen and has 
undertaken man\ projects in the short time he has been with Exeter. Welcome, Dave. 

The Accounting and Tax Office have been as busy as ever. With all the changes that have taken 
place o\er the last year, a special thanks to Diana, Val and Amy for their continued hard work, as 
well as to Carole for her continued efforts in fine-tuning our new phone system and keeping the 
reception area an informative place. 

Barbara Blenk. our Administrative Assistant/Director of Human Resources, continues to provide 
needed support and is doing a terrific Job with her new duties. 

Our Welfare Director, Robin McGlone. has had the task of keeping expenses down while Welfare 
Reform has forced more hardship on the Town. Robin has. however, been able to collect reim- 
bursements trom clients once they have gotten back on their feet or scheduled them for Workfare. 
Thank you, Robin, for your continued good work. 

The Board of Selectmen wants to commend Town Manager George Olson for a job well done. 
His dedication and hard work has kept Exeter running very well. With his leadership, the Town 
ended up with a $600,000 surplus for the fiscal year. To him and all the department heads, and 
all town employees, THANK YOU! 

We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge the events of October 20-21, 1996. Because of 
the devastation caused by the Great Flood of 1996, Exeter was put to the test like no other time in 
recent historv'. Our water treatment plant was completely submerged and damaged, and a great 
emergency existed throughout the Town. Flooded roads, washed out homes and water loss 
effected just about ever>'one. Through it all, the citizens and personnel of the Town of Exeter 
proved what a terrific communit)' this is. 

To all. in ever>' department throughout the Town, thanks! You shone in ever>' way possible. To 
the National Guard, who were there when we needed them, you made it easier for us. And, to 
the residents of Exeter: \our patience and understanding through all of the hard times gave us 
support. Each of us should be proud of our communitv^ and the people in it.

REPORT OF THE TOWN MANAGER 

As I sit down to prepare my 10th Town Manager's report I continue to marvel at what an exciting 
and rewarding job this is. Not only does it seem to change on a weekly basis, the rewards keep 
coming too. I think this is in part the nature of municipal government and the associated variety 
of services provided and the fact that Exeter is such a special place. 1 think most of our 
employees would agree that they get a lot of job satisfaction simply from being associated with 
such a wonderful community. Its not hard to do your best when you think the best of where you 
work. 

So what did happen in 1996? Well it seems that everything pales in the light of the "Great Flood 
of '96". Close to a million dollars in damage, people driven from their homes, and the near des- 
truction of the Town's water treatment plant. A pretty serious situation and one that would lead 
some towns to recrimination, anger, and finger pointing. But Exeter is not that kind of place. 
Instead everyone worked together, jobs that needed to be done got done and in the end we had 
more volunteers than we had jobs. It takes a special place to celebrate a disaster, but Exeter did, 
to thank all the folks who came together to get us through the toughest days. Some place this 
Exeter! 

In keeping with the kind of community spirit that can be seen all around us, Exeter now has a 
new Park and Recreation garage thanks to volunteer help. When the budget would not cover the 
cost of constructing the long anticipated garage off Court St.. Selectmen Scafidi and Binette 
organized and, with the help of a number of volunteers, built the garage. 

Also in line with new construction, 1996 saw the building of a new sidewalk from the Hampton 
Falls Road to the Recreation Park; repair of a portion of the Swasey Parkway seawall; and the 
paving of streets and sidewalks in Westside Manor. And to prepare for the fiiture the state began 
the design of detailed plans for the widening of Portsmouth Avenue to 4 lanes and agreed to 
undertake the construction of the new train station on Lincoln St. 

Other major efforts in the course of the year included completion of the second year of the three 
year revaluation process, the installation of a new phone system to serve the Town and the 
replacement of the dispatch center console at the Public Safety Complex. 

Keeping ahead of events also consumed time during the year. The Planning Board completed a 
Capital Improvement Program for the Town, the Water and Sewer utility began the preparation of 
a Sewer Facilities Plan and the Board of Selectmen completed an update of the Personnel Plan. 

The year saw some personnel changes, with Barbara Blenk being promoted to the position of 
Administrative Assistant/Human Resources Director, Water and Sewer Superintendent Mike 
Martin leaving Town employment, and Victoria Abbey coming aboard to carry out the duties of 
the position and the Town hired its long anticipated and first Finance Director. David Jodin. And 
again, this year, the Town Manager's Office was blessed with an intern, Kam Hassan, who got to 
see what municipal management was reallv like as he learned the ropes in the midst of the great 
flood. 



With all that is happening it is all too easy to forget to stop and thank the folks that make all this 
happen, the Board of Selectmen and the all the fine Town employees. It's also too easy to forget 
all of you, the residents and volunteers whose enthusiasm make the job of Town Manager in 
Exeter so exciting and fulfilling.

George Olson

TOWN ASSESSOR 

The Assessor's Office has been very involved in 1996 with the completion of the new tax map system, the 
yearly assessment update of values and the two year Town-wide revaluation project. These three projects have 
kept the office very active during the year. 

As a first step to the revaluatioa a new automated base mapping system has been completed. This system has 
created accurate property boundaries on a computer system from deeds, surveys and aerial photography. The 
new map data will provide an enomious amount of land information to conplement the revaluation. 

The 1995 assessments were again updated to reflect changes in the real estate market for the 1996 tax bills. 
This yearly process is an attempt to bring equity and proportionality to all property types in Town. For the 
third year in a row (1993. 1994 & 1995), the relationship between market value and property assessed value 
has been 99%, reflecting the Town's efforts to value property fairly. 

The Town- wide revaluation was started in June of 1996 and is expected to be completed for the November 
1997 tax bill. Many neighborhoods have already liad their property inspected whether a single family 
residence, mobile home, condominium or commercial property. New 1997 assessed values are projected to 
be out during the summer with values mirroring market value. 

biformation on tax relief in the form of Elderly Exemptions or Veterans Credit are available in the office with 
a new deadline date of March 1st following the notice of the tax bill. Also available are "Current Use" and 
"Intent to Cut Timber" procedures. 

Additional assessed value, for 1 996, through new construction, houses, garages and commercial improvements, 
totaled $8,573,000. New subdivision approvals, building permits and property abatement requests, have also 
been processed throughout the \ear. 

The Assessor and office staff are always available to address any concerns or questions regarding your property

THE TOWN CLERK'S REPORT 

I besin bv echoing the words and thoughts of many other people - "What a year 1996 was!"; and the 
pereonnei in the town Clerk's office can certainly attest to the fast pace of the year. However, I do 
not intend to mention the negatives as we all know about them, but to focus on the positive hi^- 
lights. 

* Filming of Town of Exeter and some of its residents by CNN News for a segment of their 
nationally aired February show "State of Power - New Hampshire", focusing on the first-in- 
the-nation Presidential Primary. 

* "GOOD MORNING AMERICA" television telecast and evening report with TV newswoman 
Cokie Roberts from Exeter Town Hall, February 20 - day of N.H.'s Presidential Primary. 

* 5 successllil elections - no recounts at Town level. 

* Clerk's office revenue for Town's General Fund increased over $142,000 in 1996. 

We discuss at great lengths the tmancial amounts needed to operate the Town but little notice is given 
to the amounts our Town receives. The Town Clerk's office is only one of the Town departments 
that generates revenue to assist in the operation of day to day services. Below is a chart that depicts 
the Clerk's office revenue. 

1996 1995 

Motor Vehicle Registrations $1,31 0,76 1 $ 1 , 1 7 1 ,344 

# Transactions (14,154) (13.717) 

Auto Sticker fees & Title 38.432 37.195 

Application fees 

Dog License fees & fines 8,466 7,203 

Balance of Revenues 23,914 23,574 



Total Revenue Amoimts $1,381,573 $1,239,316 

All of the transactions processed that generate this revenue are handled by a very competent staff of 
friendly, supportive ladies who assist me in making this office run effectively and efficiently. Deputy 
Clerk Lois Mazurka, Assistant Clerk Lisa Bu.\ton (who joined our staff in April), and retirees 
Margaret "Peg" Titus and Alice Dorman deserve our heart-felt thanks for their assistance, hard work, 
and dedication to our Town. 

The many elections of 1996 kept our office staff and the Supervisors of the Checklist very busy. 
Election Da\' voter registration proved to be very effective and our checklist number of voters ex- 
panded enormously. Alice Dorman, Margaret Duhamel, and Ruthan Dagostino spent many hours up- 
dating Exeter's checklist to maintain its accuracy. Now we urge all the registered voters to express 
their opinions in Town matters as well as they did for our State and Federal leaders. 



-26- 



M\ thanks once again lo all Hxeter residents for their continued support and patience when waiting 
in line at our office. I enjoy being your Town Clerk and look forward to the challenges that will 
surface in 1 997. As a proud Hxeter resident and taxpayer, I thank our Town Manager, each of our 
five Selectpersons. the Town Treasurer, each of the Town Department Supervisors and their staff 
members, our Finance Director, all Town of Exeter employees, committee members, and other people 
who put so much effort into keeping Exeter the fine community it is. 

Respectflilly submitted.

BUILDING INSPECTOR 

The Building Inspector's office lias had another busy year with numerous inspections of new homes, 
existing homes, and commercial properties. As the report below indicates, new single family homes 
were up considerably from last year by more than doubling from fifteen to thirty six new home 
permits. Other projects which required many inspections were Exeter Mill Apartment complex, 
Phillips Exeter Academy stadium remodel, third floor Family Center at the Exeter Hospital and the 
continued constaiction of the Latter Day Saints Church addition. 

Other responsibilities of the Building Department are working closely with the Assessing Office, 
Health Office, Public Works, Fire, and Water and Sewer Departments, Planning Board and Zoning 
Board of Adjustment. Also review of the septic designs, building plans for code compliance, 
resolving tenant and landlord disputes and helping to answer zoning ordinance questions that may be 
pertinent to a building pemiit application. 

With the Planning Board approving two major subdivisions and a number of small subdivisions which 
created a total of si.xty new single family house lots, we expect an even busier year ahead. As for 
commercial projects, the Exeter Hospital is expected to proceed with the Wellness Center which will 
be located on campus and is projected to start this spring; Wentworth Motors is planning a major 
remodel and facelift to the existing building; P.E.A. is also planning various renovation projects 
throughout its campus and, as always, we are hopefial for development along the Epping Road cor- 
ridor. 

In closing, I would like to thank Barb McEvoy, Arthur French and Muriel Coulstring for making the 
Building Department run as smooth as possible and thanks to ALL town employees for their support 
of our department. 

It has been a privilege to ser\-e as your Building Inspector for the past year and I look forward to a 
challenging and busy 1997. As always our office is open to any suggestions or questions you may 
have about a building project.

Exeter Ere Department 

The year 1996 was a challenge to the emergency preparedness and resources of the fire depart- 
ment' and the town. On October 20th, nearly 15 inches of rainfall caused road closures, electrical 
emergencies, the evacuation of civilians from overflooded areas along the Exeter River and dis- 
abled the town's water treatment facility. 

During the year, the fire department responded to 872 fire emergencies and 968 medical emer- 
gencies. The most notable incidents of the year included: 

January 15th-Structure fire at Colcords Garage on Hampton Road- Mutual Aid received 

January 24th-Kitchen fire at 4 Country Lane

On October 30th, the most serious life threatening fire of the year broke out in the early evening 
at Abbot Hall, a 35 student residential 4 story dormitory on the campus of Phillips Exeter Acad- 
emy. The town's fire hydrants were out of service due to the water emergency created by heavy 
rainfall and flooding ten day's earlier. Several key factors prevented injury and more extensive 
fire loss: 1. Early detection by the fire alann system; 2. Students received training in fire 
alann exit procedures which were executed during the emergency; 3. Mutual aid from eleven 
communities with tankers and additional firefighters brought this fire under control. The facility 
was rehabilitated and reoccupied within two weeks. 

1 wish to thank the Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, Department Heads and all employees of 
the town who assisted us in carrying out our mission of protecting the citizens, property and the 
environment within our community.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT 



Nineteen Ninety-Six was an eventftil year for the Town of Exeter and Emergency Management. 

State and federal assistance for emergency operations center (E.O.C.) training and readiness fami- 
liarized town employees in all departments with the Exeter Emergency Plan and the operations of 
the E.O.C. and equipment. 

During the summer months, two practice exercises of the Seabrook Station emergency plan were 
conducted in preparation for a federally monitored and graded exercise in September. The Town 
of Exeter passed the final exercise with no deficiencies in the plan, personnel assignments and 
performance or equipment flinction. 

On October 20th. heavy rainfall and resultant flooding threatened the safety of our citizens, public 
and private property and infrastrucaire of roads, bridges and utilities of the town. 

For eight days, the Emergency Operations Center at the Public Safety Complex remained opera- 
tional to adck-ess public safety issues of fire and police emergency response, water supply and 
health concerns, sheltering of civilians, and coordinating local, state and federal resources. 

A sincere thank you for the community support from area fire departments in our Mutual Aid 
Compact, local businesses, Exeter Hospital, Exeter Area school faculty and students. Phillips 
Exeter Academy, Seacoast Area Red Cross, Baxton Oil, Lions, Kiwanis and Rotary and the many 
volunteers who assisted us during this major event. 

Based on last year's experiences, the Emergency Management Division will continue to assess, 
evaluate, modify and enhance our local emergency action plans for our community. 

In an ongoing effort to keep the residents of Exeter informed, this office is available to answer 
any questions regarding emergency management operations. 



Respectfully Submitted,

Health Department 



The New Hampshire State Division of Publie Health Services issued several revised administrative 
rules this past year. Massage establishments: RSA 328-B, now no longer requires health oftlcer 
inspection as the Division of Public Health is not requiring licensing of the facilities. Massage 
practitioners will continue to be licensed. 

Communicable Diseases: He-P 301 goveming infectious disease reporting has revised the 
diseases to be reported, procedures for investigation, disclosure of information, decontamination, 
immunization requirements and recordkeeping. 

ENV-WS 1 101-1 105 administrative rules goveming public bathing places allow for increased state 
inspection activities due to an increase in complaints and illnesses attributed to these places. 

The department conducted 4 new daycare inspections and 2 new foster care inspections. One 
public pool was inspected by the State, due to bacterial contamination. Asbestos abatement was 
monitored at several locations. Numerous complaints of varied nature were filed and investigated. 

Restaurant and food service inspections were conducted by the State Bureau of Food Protection 
and monitored at the local level. The State Bureau was called in to investigate one food poison- 
ing incident and to assist with the October flood emergency situation. As of November 30th, the 
Health Department has conducted a total of 327 food service inspections; 60 of these were with 
the State Inspector. Eight of these were change of ownership inspections which then require fol- 
low-up inspections for a total of 16. One new food service license was issued. Five food service 
establishments closed. Local inspections included twenty-two bacteria test inspections. These 
tests were done at random. They were a good teaching tool and will be included for inspections 
throughout town in the upcoming year. 

A total of 455 health related activities have been handled as of November 30, 1996. A 
breakdown of all health activities is included in the Exeter Fire Department Consolidated Report. 

In 1997, the Health Office is looking forward to the possibility of being a self-inspecting town for 
licensing of food service operations. 

Questions or concerns regarding public health issues may be directed to the Exeter Fire Depart- 
ment at 772-1212.

EXETER PARKS AND RECREA TION 

Your Parks and Recreation Dept. continues to do its best to keep up with the ever changing field 
of leisure services: not only with facilities but with personnel, department policy, and fees 
charged for programs and special events. Our llill and part time staff' continues to look for ways 
to save money without hurting programs and facilities, while communicating the benefits message 
of Parks and Recreation. 

The E.xeter Friends of Recreation placed some new playground equipment at Front Street Park this 
year with a goal to change and upgrade Park Street Common next. At the 1996 Exeter Town 
meeting, the voters approved fionding for a brier bush fence around the playground at Park Street 
Common which was put in place this fall. 

The Exeter Farms Development donated $5,000.00 to be used at the Exeter Recreation Park on 
Hampton Road. One of the first projects to be done with these tlinds is to replace the two steel 
shelters with one large 24' by 40' wood shelter at the Park using volunteers to help build it. The 
remaining Hinds will be used to upgrade some of the playground equipment. We will receive 
additional llinding for each fifteen houses that are built up to a total of $20,000.00 from the 
developer. 

We had a record year in the revenue area with more than two-hundred and eighty thousand dollars 
generated through fees, charges and donations. Our trips program saw our bus used for many day 
trips throughout the year. We also had three day trips to New York City for shows but not with 
our bus, we rented buses for those trips. Our Senior Citizens seem to enjoy the monthly mystery 
trips as well as the many day trips we schedule each month. 

We continue to see growth in programs and request for more from the public. We hope to 
renovate our upstairs meeting rooms so we can offer more events and activities. One major 
change in our youth programs this year was the required certification of all of our volunteer 
coaches. The certification will contribute to better coaching and keep with the department policy: 
that everyone will be given a chance to participate even if they don't have a lot of ability. The 
benefits of recreation are endless. The coaches are certified through the National Youth Sports 
Coaches Association. 

A special event took place last summer with the building by volunteers from Norwood Realty of 
a shelter at the outdoor swimming pool in memory of Andy Bowers who died of skin cancer last 
year. The shelter will allow people to get out of the sun at the pool if they wish. We thank 
Norwood and their volunteers for the nice gift to the town. 

1 would like to express my thanks to the Town Departments for their continued support over the 
past year. To Phillips E.xeter Academy, a thank you for allowing us to rent your facilities at rea- 
sonable rates, and to the E.xeter School Department a thank you for your help in scheduling your 
indoor facilities in 1996. 

Our new garage is now providing a great service to the department. Stop by some day and we 
will give you a tour. Again, thank you to all who helped with the project.

Thanks to donations this past year, we were able to set out about six new trees and four park 
benches at Swasey Parkway and the Recreation Park . We thank all of you who continue to 
support our efforts. 

One of our students on our State Hershey Track and Field Team, Emily Hampson, placed first in 
New Hampshire and went on to the National meet in Hershey, Pa. We are very proud of what 
she has accomplished. 

Our department was also the water staging area during the big storm in October this year. Jan 
and I continue to serve on the emergency response team for the Town. 

I would like to express my thanks to the cominunity for your support over the last twenty-five 
years I have been your Director. I look forward to continuing to serve the residents of Exeter. 

We hope we have touched your families in some way over the years and that you will continue to 
support the Parks and Recreation Department. "Parks and Recreation — The benefits are endless." 

Yours in Recreatioa.

EXETER VETERAN'S COUNCIL 

With 1996 as my first year serving as Council President, I offer the following report. 

On Ma> 27th. the V.F.W., American Legion and D.A.V. participated in a parade in Exeter. The 
parade started at Swasey Parkway, proceeded to the Exeter Cemetery and featured guest speaker 
Lt. Alan Clark of the U.S. Army and an address by myself, as President of the Veteran's Council. 
Grave markers and flags were put on graves in various cemeteries. A wreath was placed in Swa- 
sey Parkway and a total of 16 wreaths were presented by various Veterans' groups. Military firing 
squads were also featured at the cemeteries. 

On Veterans' Day, we had a ceremony at Gale Park where wreaths were put on veteran's memor- 
ials by the D.A.V., V. F. W. and the American Legion. I was represented by Mrs. Sue Williams 
who did a fine job representing the Veteran's Group. Addresses by Chaplains of the VFW- 
American Legion were also featured. 

Respectfully submitted. 



Richard C. Dubois, President 
Exeter Veterans' Council

EXETER POUCE DEPARTMENT 

TTie Exeter Police Department recorded a 19.9% increase in calls for service during 1996 - on top 
of a 10% increase the previous year. While reports of property crimes such as burglary, larceny, 
and vandalism showed decreases of 13%, 15%, and 25% respectively; drug offenses, fraud, and 
certain types of assault were up significantly. Driving While Intoxicated arrests, after registering 
a 20% decline in 1995, were up about 13% in 1996. 

Our investigators spent a great deal of time working on five major cases: two involved the manu- 
facture of pipe bombs, one involved the disappearance of Vicky Bader (who is still missing as this 
report is written), another involved the disappearance of Aaron White who was later found mur- 
dered in Maine, and the continuing investigation into the November 13, 1984 disappearance of 
Tammy Belanger. 

We received a number of state and federal grants this year to supplement our budget. Thanks to 
these grants we now have video and sound monitoring systems in all of our cells, booking room, 
juvenile holding rtxim, and interview room. We were able to increase D.W.I, patrols, speak to 
children about seatbelt use, and assign an officer more frequently to the downtown business area. 
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) funded a camera in one of our police cruisers that al- 
lows us to document D.W.I, arrests for presentation in court. The Exeter School District provided 
fiinding to help us monitor truancy matters and any criminal and parking issues near or on school 
grounds. 

In addition to our continued commitment to D.A.R.E. and the Officer Friendly program, officers 
implemented a Dating Violence Intervention program that may soon be offered by police officers 
statewide. We continue to work with grade school children one afternoon per week - offering 
classroom help and recreational activities (llinded in part by the Exeter School District). 

We currently share our radio frequency with the towns of Seabrook, Londonderry, and Newton. 
With increased activity in each of these communities the airwaves have become over crowded. 
We have applied for a frequency of our own. The cost associated with this change is minimal, 
but the process of acquiring all the necessary permits and the FCC license is a lengthy one. 
Hopeftilly a new frequency will become a reality in 1997. 

Our police explorer group spent a week in Arizona as part of a nationwide jamboree. They raised 
all the money for their trip by washing cars, selling raffle tickets and selling Christmas wreaths. 
B\ all accounts, they had a great time. I offer my thanks for all the help they have provided to 
our agency. 

Mr. Robert Levine, co-founder and owner of Cabletron Systems, graciously provided $4,000 to 
fund the purchase of 36,000 trading cards. Children and adults alike collected cards from officers. 
School children competed in a contest to collect the entire series of cards and the winners were 
awarded various prizes - to include lunch with the officer of their choice. This was an oppor- 
tunity for officers to interact with members of the community in a very positive fashion. We look 
forward to providing a new "series" in the year ahead. I offer my heartfelt thanks to Mr. Levine 
for his contribution.

The Exeter CrimeLine Committee and the Exeter D.A.R.E. Committee have provided support and 
guidance in our eflbrts to reduce crime and control the use of illegal drugs. I thank each and 
ever\ member of these committees for their hard work and unselfish commitment to providing a 
better, safer. communit\-. 



We updated our communications center for the first time in eighteen years. Most of the equip- 
ment was outdated and replacement parts were next to impossible to obtain. Our new state-of-the- 
art computerized center will allow us to again receive burglar alarms in-house rather than requir- 
ing residents and business owners to contract with outside vendors. This will dramatically reduce 
the time involved in responding to emergencies. 

Former Police Chief Richard "Dick" Irvine passed away this year. Dick was the Chief who gave 
me the opportunit\' to work for the Exeter Police Department back in 1977. I fondly remember 
his st\ le of leadership and considered him a friend for many years. I was very pleased by the 
ttimout of our younger officers, who had never met Dick, yet proudly provided a color guard and 
a marching escort to his final resting place. 

We instituted a voluntar\- physical fitness program at our agency during the year. Nineteen of our 
twent>'-three ilill-time officers (83%) took the annual physical fitness test and seventeen passed. 
The level of participation was much higher than I expected and I congratulate each officer on 
their performance. 

Special thanks go to the Board of Selectmen. Town Manager George Olson, and all department 
heads for their help, guidance, and support during 1996. I am especially grateful to the hard 
working men and women of the Exeter Police Department for their dedication and commitment to 
pro\ iding qualit> services to our community. In our mission statement we have all pledged to 
provide qualit\' services with pride, integrity, commitment and compassion. I believe we have 
accomplished our mission in 1996 and we have done so in a professional and efficient manner. 
We look forward to the challenges ahead in 1997 as we try to make Exeter a safer community in 
which to live and work. 



Respectfully submitted.

PLANNING DEPARTMENT 

The Planning Department is responsible for land use planning and land use regulation enforcement. 
The department's primary role is to assist the Planning Board in its review of development proposals 
which include subdivisions and site plan reviews. The Planning Department also provides support 
to the Zoning Board of Adjustment, the Historic District Commission, and the Exeter Development 
Commission. We work with the Fire Department, the Exeter Conservation Commission, and the 
Public Works Department on a routine basis as part of the technical review process for applications 
submitted to the Planning Board. We also work closely with the Building Department on enforcement 
of the Town's Zoning Ordinance and other town board decisions. 

Considerable time was spent during 1996 to reactivate the capital improvements program (CIP) for 
the Town of Exeter. Research was completed with the help of the Finance Department on past capital 
spending and projections were developed for iliture revenues. The Planning Department with the 
assistance of a CIP Advisory Committee requested Departments to submit a listing of requested 
improvements along with justifications for the projects. As a result of these efforts, the Planning 
Board recommended to the Budget Recommendations Committee and the Board of Selectmen a 
significant increase in capital spending with a plan for financing the improvements. The Planning 
Board also recommended a greater effort to plan for transportation improvements including sidewalks. 
A major goal of this process was to highlight capital improvements with a separate capital outlay 
budget as well as stress the importance of maintaining our existing capital investments. 

Planning Department goals for 1997 include continuing the work to make capital improvements 
planning a regular part of the budget process with a special emphasis on transportation planning and 
grant application. Attention will also be given for preparation for the proposed reconstruction of 
Water Street which is currently scheduled for the year 2000. The installation of new computers will 
help take advantage of the many sources of information for analyzing land use changes. The 
residential build-out analysis done in 1996 will be used in 1997 as part of the facilities planning for 
municipal water and sewer improvements which will be conducted by the Public Works Department. 

I have enjoyed the increase in activity in the Planning Department during 1996. and I like to believe 
we have been able to meet the challenge. Clerical Supervisor Barbara McEvoy and Office Clerk 
Muriel Coulstring and I all try to make ourselves available to respond to requests for help from the 
public in an efficient manner. Land use change procedures and practices can be confusing to the 
inexperienced so please always feel comfortable about asking questions early in the process to avoid 
misunderstandings about zoning issues or application procedures. 

We especially enjoyed working with the many land use board volunteers who are willing to listen and 
discuss issues through some long evenings in service to the community. The Town of Exeter is 
fortunate to have municipal departments that are quick to cooperate with each other and it all makes 
it easier to face another year's work. 

Respectfiilly submitted.

INDEPENDENT A UDITOR 'S REPORT ON THE INTERNAL CONTROL 

STRUCTURE BASED ON AN AUDIT OF GENERAL-PURPOSE 

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS PERFORMED IN ACCORDANCE 

WITH GOVERNMENT AUDITING STAND ABBS 



To the Members of the 

Board of Selectmen and Town Manager 
Town of Exeter 
Exeter, New Hampshire 

We have audited the general-purpose financial statements of the Town of Exeter, as of and for the year 
ended December 31, 1995, and have issued our report thereon, which was qualified as indicated 
therein, dated April 12, 1996. 

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and Government 
Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require 
that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whedier the general-purpose 
financial statements are free of material misstatement. 

The management of the Town of Exeter is responsible for establishing and maintaining an internal 
control structure. In fulfilling this responsibility, estknates and judgments by management are required 
to assess the expected benefits and related costs of internal control structure policies and procedures. 
The objectives of an internal control structure are to provide management with reasonable, but not 
absolute, assurance that assets are safeguarded against loss from unauthorized use or disposition, and 
that transactions are executed in accordance with management's authorization and recorded properly 
to permit the preparation of general-purpose financial statements in accordance with generally accepted 
accounting principles. Because of inherent limitations in any internal control structure, errors or 
irregularities may nevertheless occur and not be detected. Also, projection of any evaluation of the 
structure to future periods is subject to the risk that procedures may become inadequate because of 
changes in conditions or that the effectiveness of die design and operation of policies and procedures 
may deteriorate. 

In planning and performing our audit of the general-purpose financial statements of the Town of Exeter 
for the year ended December 31, 1995, we obtained an understanding of the internal control structure. 
With respect to the internal control structure, we obtained an understanding of the design of relevant 
policies and procedures and whether they have been placed in operation, and we assessed control risk 
in order to determine our auditing procedures for die purpose of expressing our opinion on the 
general-purpose financial statements and not to provide assurance on the internal control structure. 
Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion. 

We noted a certain matter involving the internal control structure and its operation that we consider 
to be a reportable condition under standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public 



ro\v7i oj Exeter 

Independent Auditor's Report on the Internal Control Structure Based on an Audit of General- 
Purpose Financial Statements Performed in Accordance with Government Auditing Standards 

Accountants. Reportable conditions involve matters coming to our attention relating to significant 
deficiencies in the design or operation of the internal control structure that, in our judgment, could 
adversely affect the Town's ability to record, process, summarize, and report financial data consistent 
with the assertions of management in the general-purpose financial statements. 

NEED FOR EXPERIENCED ACCOUNTANT/FINANCIAL MANAGER TO SUPERVISE ALL TOWN 
ACCOUNTING FUNCTIONS 

We are pleased that the Town has upgraded its computer reporting systems in 1995. However, the 
Town continues to rely on its independent auditors to provide a surplus or fund balance figure at year 
end. In addition, most of the Town's department heads maintain separate financial records of their 
respective departments because of the complexity of reading and interpreting the financial records 
maintained by the Town. 

We continue to recommend that the Town consider hiring an experienced Accountant/Financial 
Manager to assume the responsibility and supervision of all Town accounting and recordkeeping 
functions. The individual must be competent and experienced in governmental accounting to assume 
the responsibility for the following: 

1. Reviewing and appraising the soundness, adequacy and application of accounting, financial and 
operating controls 

2. Ascertaining the extent of compliance with established policies, plans and procedures, to include 
State and Federal statutes where applicable 

3. Ascertaining the extent to which the Town's assets are accounted for and safeguarded from losses 
of all kinds 

4. Supervising the various clerical aspects of the accounting functions, including bookkeeping and 
responsibility for preparing periodic financial reports, such as the Tax Collector's summary of 
warrants and tax sale reports 

5. Confirming the reliability of accounting and other data within the organization 

6. Monitoring the data processing systems and applications to determine reliability in processing data 
in a timely, accurate, and complete manner 

We are pleased to report that the Town has accomplished the above goal by hiring its first Finance 
Director in 1996. 

A material weakness is a reportable condition in which the design or operation of one or more of the 
internal control structure elements does not reduce to a relatively low level the risk that errors or 
irregularities in amounts that would be material in relation to the general-purpose financial statements 
beiiig audited may occur and not be detected within a timely period by employees in the normal course 
of performing their assigned functions.

Town of Exeter 

Independent Auditor's Report on the Internal Control Structure Based on an Audit of General- 
Purpose Financial Statements Perfonned in Accordance with Government Auditing Standards 

Our consideration of the internal control structure would not necessarily disclose all matters in the 
internal control structure that might be reportable conditions and, accordingly, would not necessarily 
disclose all reportable conditions that are also considered to be material weaknesses as defined above. 
We noted the following matters involving the internal control strucmre and its operation that we 
consider to be material weaknesses as defined above. 

AMBULANCE FUND 

The records and accounts of the Ambulance Fund were incomplete and unauditable for the fiscal year 
1995. Year-end reports and a detailed list of uncollected accounts at December 31, 1995, were not 
prepared. Revenue reports were available only through October 1995. 

We recommend that Town officials take immediate steps to bring all accounts up to date and 
reconciled with respective supporting documents. 

GENERAL FFXED ASSET ACCOUNTING (REPEAT RECOMMENDATION) 

In general, accounting for fixed assets provides information for estimating the amount of insurance 
needed, monitors asset utilization, provides a safeguard over the asset, and allows for depreciation to 
be estimated when applicable. The Town does not maintain records for its investment in property, 
plant, and equipment. Fixed asset accounting should be considered when determination of applications 
to be automated is made. Certain grants, as well as generally accepted accounting principles, require 
that adequate fixed asset records be maintained. 

We also noted other matters involving the internal control strucmre and its operation or opportunities 
for better efficiency and/or cost savings that we have discussed widi management or specific 
individuals involved. These maners include the following: 

A. Purchase Order requirements 

B. Custody of all Agency Funds by the Town Treasurer 

C. Approval of Payroll Manifests by the Town Manager 

This report is intended for the information of management and the Town. However, this report is a 
matter of public record, and its distribution is not limited.

As you know, as of July 1, 1997, the Exeter School 
District will only be responsible for Grades K-5. The 
responsibility for Grades 6-1 2 will transfer to the Exeter

In an effort to make the comparisons between the current 
year (1996-97) budget and the proposed (1997-98) 
budget easier to understand, the following schedules 
have been developed: 

I Appropriations and actual expenditures for 1995-96, 
and appropriations for 1996-97 for Grades K-12. 

II Appropriations for 1996-97 divided between Grades 
(K-5), which is the future Exeter School District, and 
Grades (6-12) which is the future Cooperative 
District. 

III Same as schedule I for Grades (6-12) which will 
become the future Cooperative District. 

IV Appropriations- Presentation for Grades (K-5) of prior 
year, current year, and proposed year budget/actual 
figures. 

IV Revenue- Shows 1995-96 actual and budgeted 
revenue for Grades (K-12), and 1996-97 and 
1997-98 estimated revenues including estimated tax 
rate impact for 1997-98.

INDEPENDENT A UDITOR 'S REPORT ON FINANCIAL PRESENTATION 



To the Members of the School Board 
Exeter Area School District 
Exeter, New Hampshire 

We have audited the accompanying general-purpose financial statements of the Exeter Area School 
District as of and for the year ended June 30, 1996. These general-purpose financial statements are the 
responsibility of the School District's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these 
general-purpose financial statements based on our audit. 

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and Government 
Auditing Standards issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require 
that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the general-purpose 
financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, 
evidence supponing the amounts and disclosures in the general-purpose financial statements. An audit 
also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, 
as well as evaluating the overall general-purpose financial statement presentation. We believe that our 
audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. 

The general-purpose financial statements referred to above do not include the general fixed assets 
account group which should be included in order to conform with generally accepted accounting 
principles. As is the case with most municipal entities in the State of New Hampshire, the Exeter Area 
School District has not maintained historical cost records of its fixed assets. The amount that should 
be recorded in the general fixed assets account group is not known. 

In our opinion, except for the effect on the financial statements of the omission described in the 
preceding paragraph, the general-purpose financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all 
material respects, the financial position of the Exeter Area School District, as of June 30, 1996, and the 
results of its operations for the year then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting 
principles. 

Our audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the general-purpose financial statements 
taken as a whole. The combining and individual fund financial statements listed in the table of contents 
are presented for purposes of additional analysis and are not a required part of the general-purpose 
financial statements of the Exeter Area School District. Such information has been subjected to the 
auditing procedures applied in the audit of the general-purpose financial statements and, in our opinion, 
is fairly presented in all material respects in relation to the general-purpose financial statements taken 
as a whole.

MANNING BOARD 

The Planning Board is responsible for the review and approval of all subdivisions and lot line 
adjustments which are recorded at the Rockingham County Registry of Deeds as well as site plan 
review for all site work associated with multi-family residential, commercial and industrial 
development within the Town of Exeter. The Board is also resp)onsible for undertaking both short 
and long-range planning through the preparation of a master plan and capital improvements program 
as well as making recommendations to the Town voters for amendments to the zoning ordinance. 
Tlie Planning Board is assisted in fulfilling its responsibilities by the Planning Department staff and 
other Town employees and private consultants. Planning Board meetings are scheduled for the second 
and fourth Thursdays of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Nowak Room of the Town Office building. 
Meetings are also televised live on Channel 58 of the Exeter Continental Cablevision system. 

During 1996 the Planning Board saw a significant increase in applications. The fort}' (40) appli- 
cations submitted included a new proposed 56 lot open space subdivision in two phases which is 
under construction as Exeter Farms off Hampton Road. The Ashbrook Springs Development is also 
under construction off Ashbrook Road and that development is intended to create 45 lots in two 
phases. Two other ten lot subdivisions have received conditional approval from the Planning Board; 
one located off Riverwoods Drive and the other as an extension of Exeter Falls Drive. The Board 
also approved a modified Wellness/Rehab Center at the Exeter Hospital Campus along with the 
expansion of Sigarms. Inc. in the Exeter Corporate Park and a new Gibbs gas station/convenience 
store off Portsmouth Avenue. 

The \ear ahead will bring more construction on the Rte. 101 improvements including the beginning 
work on a new Rte. 88 connector road. Land use changes are likely to follow the road construction 
improvements which will bring new applications to the Board. Tlie Exeter Capital Improvements 
Program has been reactivated during 1996 and the Board will continue to assist the Town in making 
major infrastructure investments for the friture. Goals for the new year include establishing a 
sidewalk improvement plan for the Town as well as long term planning for future improvements to 
Epping Road and the lower portion of Portsmouth Avenue. 

As always, the public is invited to attend Planning Board meetings to express their thoughts on 
applications being considered by the Board or on other planning related issues. Please feel free to 
contact the Planning Department office with any specific questions or concerns for the Planning 
Board. 

The Board would like to express its thanks to those Town employees, citizens, businesses and 
developers who played an active role in the planning process in Exeter in 1996, and the Board looks 
forward to working on new plans for 1 997.

ZONING BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT 

The Zoning Board of Adjustment sits as a five member qiiasi-judicial body to hear and decide on 
three types of applications: variance, special exception and appeal from an administrative decision. 
If a proposed 1997 zoning amendment is adopted, the Board will be authorized to receive appli- 
cations for an equitable waiver of dimensional requirements. An application for a variance alleges 
that a literal enforcement of a particular provision of the Zoning Ordinance would result in an un- 
necessary hardship. An application for a special exception is a request to permit a specific use 
subject to meeting certain criteria set forth in the Zoning Ordinance. An appeal from an admini- 
strative decision involves a request for review of a decision by an administrative official with 
respect to enforcement of any provision of the Zoning Ordinance. The Zoning Board of Adjust- 
ment meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM in the Nowak Room of the Town Oifice 
building. 

The Zoning Board of Adjustment met ten (10) times in 1996 and considered a total of twenty (20) 
applications. Fourteen (14) applications for variance were heard, of which all were granted. Six 
(6) ^plications for special exception were heard, of which five (5) were granted.

EXETER HISTORIC DISTRICT COMMISSION

requests for exterior changes to propert) and signs within the Front Street and Downtown Historic 
Districts. The primar\ purpose of the Commission is to help make Exeter a better and more distinctive 
place to live by preserx ing historicalh significant exterior architecture. The Cominission promotes the 
full use, development and renovation of properties within the historic districts and is available to assist 
propert) owners with their proposed projects. 

The Commission administers Article 8 of the Exeter Zoning Ordinance for proposed changes to

proposed changes in the Historic District include a new block and brick building at the vacant lot on

EXETER DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION 

The Exeter Development Commission (EDC) successfully initiated two warrant articles at the 1996 
Town Meeting. Article 30 authorized the discontinuance of Southside Road adjacent to Epping Road 
with the condition that a widened and extended Garrison Lane be laid out by the Board of Selectmen. 
This action will ensure that over 300 acres of office and light industry zoned land will be accessible 
from Epping Road to help encourage property tax base growth. For the same reason, the EEXT 
persuaded voters to approve Article 21 which gives the Board of Selectmen the authority to issue up 
to $1,256,000 in notes or bonds for the purpose of extending municipal water and sewer services 
along Epping Road. The decision to issue the financing will be tied to the value of a proposed project 
for increasing Town revenues. 

For 1997, the EDC has recommended various zoning amendments for Planning Board sponsorship 
to help create greater flexibility to attract a variety of potential uses in non-residential zoning districts. 
As the pace of construction for Rte. 101 improvements increases during 1997, more opportunities will 
be available for economic development during a period of increasing prosperity. The new connector 
road from Portsmouth Avenue to Holland Way and Rte. 88 will be under construction which will 
open the possibility of new development along the roadway. 

The EDC will continue to work with the Exeter Planning Board and other Town officials on 
infrastructure improvements that will position Exeter to attract high quality economic development. 
The number and scope of new facilities planned to serve Exeter from a new Exeter Region Co- 
operative School to roadway improvements along Portsmouth Avenue and new communication towers 
off Guinea Road and Commerce Way will all help attract desirable investment in our community. 

The Exeter Development Commission would like to remind all residents of Exeter that they can play 
a part in maintaining a healthy, growing local business community, by communicating with the EDC 
about business concerns. Helping Exeter maintain and grow strong businesses brings direct benefits 
to every citizen and to our community as a whole. Public support and participation is key to enabling 
the Exeter Development Commission to ftilfill its mission.

WELFARE DEPARTMENT 

General Assistance is designed to provide short-term assistance to eligible residents of the Town 
of Exeter. Assistance is granted for help with basic needs such as shelter, food, utilities, and 
medical needs and is always done in the form of a voucher. All recipients of General Assistance 
agree to reimburse the Town when they return to an income status which allows them to do so. 

Many area agencies and civic organizations helped keep Exeter's budget at a relatively low 
amount. The area food pantries and the SHARE program assisted several people along with the 
many Christmas and Thanksgiving food baskets and hot meals provided at the holidays. Area 
churches helped with heating expenses, gasoline expenses and clothing. The Exeter Chamber of 
Commerce contributed to the warm clothing drive and the Exeter Lions Club assisted residents 
with the eyeglass and denture program. 

Exeter residents received assistance with fiiel bills from the Fuel Assistance program administered 
by Rockingham Community Action Program. Some also received emergency assistance under 
FE^4A monies that were available through their program. Exeter Housing Authority provided 
subsidized rent to many residents. Many low-cost nutritional meals were provided at the Senior 
Center and at home under the Meals on Wheels program. 

The Town of Exeter assisted 94 families in 1996, 92 families in 1995 and 1 16 families in 1994. 
The following is a breakdown of the expenditures for 1996 and 1995: 





1996 


1995

$ 29,122.24 



In addition, the Town of Exeter received $7,984.83 in reimbursements from former recipients and 
agencies during 1996. Another way to reimburse the Town for assistance granted is to participate 
in the Workfare program. During 1996, 1.01 1.25 workfare hours were completed compared to 
1995 where 589.5 hours were completed. 

1 would like to thank all the organizations who have assisted those in need. You have shown that 
Exeter is a wonderftil community. 1 would also like to thank the Board of Selectmen, our Town 
Manager, fellow department heads and all other town employees for your cooperation and support 
throughout the year.

PUBUC WORKS DEPARTMENT 

I am pleased to submit my twelfth annual report to the citizens of Exeter. TTiis department oversees 
and maintains all Town roads, bridges and sidewalks; all municipal buildings and vehicles; the 
maintenance of the closed landfill and operation of the Solid Waste Transfer Facility; rubbish and 
recycling collections; composting operations; the water, sewer, and storm drainage system, as well 
as the two town dams. We also prepare contracts, specifications, and plans for construction and 
renovation projects. The department provides various levels of support to other municipal de- 
partments. 

The Highway Division completed the paving of all the roads within Westside Manor and installed 
new granite curbing along portions of Front, Center, Franklin, and Cliftbrd Streets. The crews also 
rebuilt the Old Mill penstock opening, installed a drain for Colcord Pond, started a new tree farm, 
and revamped the landscaping in front of the Town Hall. We extended the sidewalks on Jady Hill 
Ave., Franklin St., Clifford Ave., and resurfaced portions of sidewalks on Portsmouth Ave., High St., 
Front St., and Center Street. The men had to plow and remove record snowfalls of over 104 inches 
of snow. 

The IVbintenance Division has kept busy maintaining our municipal buildings and vehicle fleet. In 
addition, the crew installed new toilet partitions in the men's room at the town hall, installed attic 
fans at the Public Safety Complex, replaced roofing at the Senior Citizen Center, and repainted a 
number of offices. In addition to routine maintenance our mechanics kept busy on some major 
vehicle and equipment repairs as well as rebuilding a truck body. 

The Water/ Sewer Division welcomed a new superintendent Victoria Abbey to the department. I am 
pleased to report that she is doing a fine job. This year the field crew focused on conducting an 
extensive survey of the sewer system which will be used to develop new sewer system maps. It has 
been about 20 years since these maps have been updated. These maps will be the basis for a Sewer 
System Evaluation Study which will be conducted in 1997. The sewer treatment staff has been busy 
implementing federal requirements for monitoring combined sewer system overflows. 

Not to forget the flood that shook the town. I am very proud of the response and dedication the 
employees gave to help the town tlirough this difficult ordeal. Our department had to work hard and 
long hours to maintain services and minimize losses. We saw extensive damage to our water 
treatment facilit>', Colcord Pond Dam, and Great Bridge on High Street. In addition, we dealt with 
damages to Linden Street bridge, the Town Hall and Office buildings, and a number of streets. I also 
want to thank all the other people that assisted us to do our job. 

I would like to thank the Board of Selectman, the Water / Sewer Advisory Committee, Town Mana- 
ger, fellow Department Heads and all town employees for their assistance, guidance, and contributions 
throughout the year. Also, I would like to thank all the thoughtful residents that have come in contact 



to work with. Once again, I would like to say I really appreciate the opportunity to serve you and 
look forward to working for you in the upcoming year.

EXETER COUNCIL ON AGING 

The year 1996 saw one of the original members of the Exeter Council on Aging turn 102. Flavia 
Page had her birthday party attended by many of the Council members to help celebrate her 102"'' 
birthday. The Council started in 1973. 

The Council would like to again thank Nan Pearson for her volunteer service to sell taxi tickets 
each Friday morning throughout the year. We will again offer the discount taxi program for the 
2A^ year, with part of the Hinding from the Town and through the purchase of tickets by the 
senior citizens, and with the continued support of the Exeter Taxi Company. The program 
provides more than 8,000 rides per year. 

The Exeter Senior Citizens Trust Fund donated $1,000.00 towards the replacement of the 
Recreation bus. 

The Council would like to express their thanks to all who helped the Council this past year.

SWASEY PARKWAY 

The Trustees of the Swasey Parkway would like to express our thanks to the Exeter Parks and 
Recreation Department for their continued support with the setting out of more trees and park 
benches at the park over the last year. In the past six years more than 30 trees and five new park 
benches have been given to the Parkway through the Recreation Special Community Tree and 
Park Bench program. 

rXuuic Staples Landscaping again did an outstanding job with the care of the lawns, trees and 
small bushes. Some of these changes will result in a savings to the Trust Fund. 

llie seawall was repaired thanks to funding from the annual town meeting, the first of two 
projects was completed in 1996. There will be other requests coming before the town for more 
repair work. The roadway is still in need of repairs that must be addressed by the Town in the 
months and years to come. 

Again this year we had quite a few weddings at the park along with the weekly summer concerts 
and special events provided by the E.xeter Parks and Recreation Department. The farmers market, 
a ver\' popular weekly event from June to October each year, continues to improve each year with 
more vendors joining in. Other events included the annual Christmas Parade and bonfire. 

There was some discussion on who has control of the roadway through the parkway: the Board 
of Selectmen or the Trustees. Tliis should be made clear to the public after the Town Counsel 
checks back through the records for answers. Both groups are trying to do what is best for the 
Town. 

When using the Parkwa\\ please make sure you are courteous and helpfril. The Parkway was 
given to the Town for all to use: help us keep it clean and looking nice. The Trustees again 
would like to thank the public who take a ownership interest in the Park, their watchfiil eye and 
prompt contacting of Trustees when necessary serves us all. Again thank you to all for your 
support over the years. 

Respectfully submitted.

EXETER PUBUC LIBRARY 

The Exeter Public Library is a busy and popular place serving the needs of Exeter's diverse 
community, from young children through teens to adults. In addition to books and materials to 
check-out, your library has something for everyone; you can sit and read magazines, do homework 
assignments, find information for personal interest or business reasons, get tax forms, and help 
with them, study your genealogy, listen to a story, do an art project, listen to guest speakers, 
learn more about writing, find books to help you study for a GED, or meet with other people and 
exchange ideas. To continue to offer these services and be prepared to meet the challenges of 
the future a second five-year planning committee of community members has been formed. The 
committee met throughout the year and will present a plan to increase awareness of and access to 
the library to the Board of Trustees. 

Children's Services has seven story-times each week, with one for Headstart and in-home day- 
cares, as well as two crafts each week. The Summer Reading Program, Read and Ride the Rails, 
was a great success, over 1,300 children read more than 15,000 books and won prizes donated by 
local merchants. Again this year librarians brought books, prizes, and the Summer Reading Pro- 
gram to the campers at Exeter Recreation's PlayCamp. 

Young Adult services held a very successftjl summer program with over 100 participants reading 
over 700 books and vying for 20 fabulous prizes. Regular visits to the junior high school and 
trivia contests kept the teens coming in for even more books. 

Adult services has many new books on various topics, the hot best sellers and a number of inter- 
esting programs including book discussion groups, a writer's group and speakers of all types who 
supply current information on popular topics. 

Reference services is as busy as ever answering questions from people of all ages, from all walks 
of life and for all types of reasons. Tlie addition of popular information on CD's as well as hard 
copy has made even more information immediately accessible for all. 

The Friends of the Exeter Library were active with used book sales at the library and twice yearly 
sales which help support the library. Our faithfril volunteers mended and shelved books. The li- 
brary is fortunate to have the support of so many dedicated people. 

As the new library director I want to thank Barbara, Valerie, Diana, and George at the Town Of- 
fice and Keith, John, and Jackson at Public Works who have been very generous with their time 
and their help. I thank the Board of Trustees for working hard to insure Exeter has a strong libra- 
ry responsive to community needs. I thank the library staff for their dedication and support; Pam, 
Judy, Jean, Connie, Ellen, Sandra, Ken, Rick, Pam, Denise, Gail, Barbara, and Michelle, people 
who do a number of difficult tasks all at one time and do them all well. I feel privileged to work 
with you.

EXETER CONSERVATION COMMISSION 

The Exeter Conservation Commission had another active and industrious year. Bolstered by the enthusiasm 
of some new members, and the solid support of those who have been on the Commission for a number of years, 
there were several significant accomplishments. 

Perhaps of immediate interest to Town members is that the Commission now has new maps of the 
Henderson-Swasey Town Forest and the Oaklands Town Forest available. The trails are color-coded on the map 
to coincide with the color markings on the actual trails in the woods. These two maps are back-to-back and are 
on sale at the Town Office. The Commission had help designating and marking the trails fi-om several quarters, 
including the Exeter Boy Scouts. 

The Tov^n Forests continue to get a lot of recreational use. In addition to the general hiking, biking and 
cross-country skiing, two groups made specific use of the areas. The Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts initiated a 
canping program in the Henderson-Swasey Town Forest on tv^o weekends in the summer. They intend to 
continue the program this coming year. Also the first Mud-In-Your-Eye Bike Race was held in September. Al- 
thougli the trails were heavily used, the sponsoring group was helpful in defining and maintaining the trails. We 
look to continue working with groups who not only want to use the Forests, but have a strong interest in helping 
to preser\'e the forest environment. 

Much of the Commissions montlily meetings and activities center around building plans in town. This year, 
the separate proposals by two different gas transmission pipeline companies occupied a significant amount of time. 
Both Portland Natural Gas Transmissions System and Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline Company presented their 
plans to the Commission, including their proposed route though the Henderson-Swasey Town Forest. Other 
additional meetings and site walks also were attended. The Commissions goal is to minimize the impact of the 
construction on the Town Forest, if the project is approved. 

In other areas, the Town nursery was improved and 150 trees were planted for fiiture use. The majority 
of the credit goes to Peter Waltz's unflagging efforts to maintain and improve the nursery. Peter was also 
instrumental in arranging our 7th annual Arbor Day/Earth Day program for fifth grade students at Lincoln Street 
School. As in the past, each student is given a Eraser fir seedling to plant at home. In the seven years over 800 
trees have been given out and planted around Exeter homes. It is interesting to muse about how many are still 
thriving and growing as the initial trees would be about 10 feet tall at this point. 

As to conserving open space, the Commission showed its support of the acquisition of the Sehnaoui 
property for Town use by rnaking a contribution to the fimd drive. The Commission also purchased an easement 
on 83 acres of land ofT Brentwood Road owned by the DollofT family. Carroll DolloflF and his daughter, Joaa 
owners of the land, have preserved a significant piece of property for public use that has been in their family for 
over 200 years. It is adjacent to other Conservation land and helps to expand that open space. 

Other projects during the year included trail maintenance in the Town forests, participation in River 
Awareness Day and maintaining the easements held by the Commission. Although the membership of the 
Commission increased and is quite active, there are still Alternate positions available and we invite interested 
parties to apply and to attend our monthly meetings in the Nowak Room of the Town Office building the second 
Tuesday of every month.

WATER AND SEWER ADVISORY COMMTITEE 

The Water and Sewer Advisory Committee is charged by the Board of Selectmen with oversight 
of the Water and Sewer Division of the Department of Pubhc Works and with providing the 
Board with direction in matters relating to the Town's water and sewer utility. In addition, the 
Committee is responsible for addressing customer complaints and requests for adjustments to 
water and sewer bills. The water and sewer utility operates exclusively on user fees and does not 
rely on property taxes for support. 

No question about it, 1996 will be remembered as the year of the great flood and the damage 
done to the Town's water treatment plant. On October 2 1 the plant was flooded as the result of 
some 15 inches of rainfall. The plant was shut down, and following a detailed investigation of 
the damage done by the flood waters, work was begun on repairs. Damage was considerable, 
over a half a million dollars, and led to the need for water conservation throughout the Town for a 
period of 6 weeks while repairs were undertaken. Forttanately the loss was covered by insurance. 
Throughout the entire 6 week period the utilities' customers were most patient and understanding. 

Even without the flood the year would have been a busy one. The Committee met on 8 occasions 
throughout the year and dealt with a variety of issues. With the receipt of $400,000 from the 
state to help pay for the upgrade to the water treatment plant came the Committee's recommenda- 
tion to the Board of Selectmen and their subsequent approval of a $1 15,000 annual reduction in 
water service fees. The remaincfer of the 1996 state funds and subsequent state payments will be 
used to help insure that water and sewer rates are kept as flat as possible. 

Also on the money side of things, the Committee, along with the Exeter Development Commis- 
sion, championed a warrant article to help encourage development otf the Epping Rd. At the 
March Town meeting the voters approved a $1,256,000 bond issue to help cover the cost of 
bringing utilities out the Epping Rd as far as Garrison Lane. Off Garrison Lane sits the single 
largest parcel of commercially and industtially zoned land left in Town. It is the Committee's 
belief that the provision of water and sewer services to this area will help to make it more likely 
that the land will be developed and, in turn, the Town will be able to enjoy the associated in- 
crease in jobs and property tax revenues. 

In later summer, the utility got word the state refijsed to issue a new discharge permit for the 
waste water treatment plant unless the amount of copper and ammonia being discharged was re- 
duced. Reducing the quantity of these pollutants going into the Squamscott will be a significant 
undertaking over the next two years. It is the utility's intent to do everything possible to meet the 
state requirements with out raising water and sewer rates. 

The year brought some major changes in the utilities' staff Mike Martin, the Water and Sewer 
Superintendent left Town employment to take a job in Rhode Island. He was replaced by Victoria 
Abbey who came to Exeter from New London. Laboratory technician Clara Reed left and was 



replaced by Mike Gootee who takes on the new position of Water and Sewer Treatment Operator 
Technician. Also new to Town employment is Ken Grant, Maintenance Technician, who is in 
charge of the utilities' preventive maintenance program. 

As for 1997. the Committee looks to implementing its plan to computerize meter reading, com- 
plete the two year effort to prepare the Sewer Facilities Plan and to implement the recently 
completed Life Cycle Engineering program. This latter effort is directed at keeping up with 
maintcniince requirements of all of our water and sewer facilities. With both the water and sewer 
treatment plants upgraded, it is important that they be kept in top condition to insure that they 
meet their 20 year design life. This is indeed the challenge of the Water and Sewer Advisory 
Committee over the next year, to insure that the Town continues to enjoy the benefits of a state of 
the art water and sewer system and that all our customers are provided with the highest quality of 
service.

ROCKINGHAM PLANNING COMMISSION 

The Rockingham Planning Commission is one of nine regional planning commissions in New 
Hampshire established by RSA 36 to promote coordinated land use and transportation planning at 
the local and regional level. Operating as a public non-profit agency, the Commission serves in 
an advisory role and provides a wide array of professional planning assistance to its member com- 
munities. 

During 1996, the Rockingham Planning Commission provided a variety of regional and local as- 
sistance. The direct local assistance provided to Exeter during the year included the following: 

1. Assisted Town Manager and Public Works Director to coordinate the annual Household 
Hazardous Waste collection. Tasks included preparing the grant application for state 
iunds, making arrangements with the licensed hazardous waste hauler, and coordinating 
volunteers. 

2. The RPC, with contractual assistance from UNH/Complex Systems Research Center, con- 
ducted a residential buildout analysis of the Town to assess future residential development 
potential in each zoning district. This work included the creation of computerized maps of 
the Town's flood hazard areas (Federal Flood Insurance Rate Maps). 

3. RPC staff continued to work to resolve outstanding issues which have delayed startup of 
the Boston to Portland Aintrak service and to maintain communication between the Town, 
State and Federal agencies involved; facilitated the transfer of station construction Hinds to 
the Federal Highway Administration to reduce Town liability. 

4. Prepared Coastal Program planning/management grant (FY-97) for matching funds to con- 
struct the first phase of repairs of the Swasey Park Seawall. Assisted the Town to secure 
carryover funds to help pay for the preparation of final engineering plans of the construc- 
tion. 

5. Assisted in the Planning Department in reviewing digitized tax parcel maps prepared by a 
consultant under contract to the Town. The end product will provide the town with a 
state-of-the art base map to serve as the basis for future revaluations and for the Town's 
geographic information system. 

6. Responded to periodic requests from Planning Department and Town Officials to research 
planning related questions, including: governmental compliance to local zoning; consumer 
price indexing for wage change comparisons; voluntary lot mergers, pedestrian crossing 
design and traffic calming techniques. 

In addition to assistance provided specifically to Exeter, the Town benefitted from the Commis- 
sion's regional planning activities, including education and training for land use board members, 
general regional land use and transp)ortation planning and land conservation and resource pro- 
tection efforts. This year, regional activities benefitting Exeter included: close monitoring, analy- 



-56- 



sis and public comment regarding the Portland and Maritimes natural gas pipeline proposals; 
organizational support for the startup of the Exeter River Local Advisory Committee created under 
the NH Rivers Protection Program; updating of the region-wide inventory of existing and land use 
and zoning maps; assistance in securing continued funding for COAS'f 's Route 1 serving Exeter, 
Stratham and Portsmouth, and linal approval and adoption of the region's Transportation Improve- 
ment Program.

OILMAN PARK 

On July 12. 1892 Daniel Oilman deeded to "Oeorge E. Street, Oeorge W. Clark, H.C. FoUansby, 
Henry A. Shute and William P. Chadwick and their successors in the Trust hereinafter mentioned" 
a parcel of land containing eleven (more or less) acres of land situated at the confluence of Exeter 
River and Little River. These trustees "shall have the power to choose their successors in trust" ... 
and shall hold in trust these premises "for the use and enjoyment of said Town of Exeter as a 
public park". 

The park is reached on foot by a narrow bridge spanning Little River at the end of Oilman Street 
(which runs between the Academy gym and the Academy tennis courts). Vehicular traffic can 
reach the park from Bell Avenue off Coiut Street. 

Under the auspices of the Exeter Parks and Recreation Department (whose Director is also a 
trustee) the park hosts a variety of people and activities: the co-ed adult volleyball group; the 
spring time T-ball, baseball and softball programs; family reunions and outings. It is a study area 
for science and art classes from the Exeter schools. During the summer it is a day trip site for the 
Exeter playcamp. The school softball team practices on the ballfields. Boy Scouts and Girl Souts 
use the park for badge work. 

lliis year Secretan Dana Wyman and Roger Sloan resigned. The current trustees wish to thank 
them for their years of service. Martha Pennell and Harry Thayer were named as their successors. 

Man\ parts of the park (especially the ball fields) were flooded due to the heav\' rains in the 
(>:tober 1 00 year storm.

EXETER HOUSING A UTHORITY 



The two (2) programs the Exeter Housing Authority oflfers to assist low income families, elderly, 
and disabled and handicapped households are Section 8 and Public Housing. 

The Section 8 Existing Housing Program is designed to help low income elderly (age 62 or older) 
families, disabled or handicapped households. The Exeter Housing Authority serves a mix of 
these households who currently occupy 169 apartments located throughout the Town of Exeter. 
The apartments are owned by private landlords. The portion of the apartment rents not paid by 
the tenants themselves are paid by the Federal Housing Assistance Programs administered by the 
Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

Those interested in the Section 8 Program should contact the Exeter Housing Office at 277 Water 
Street by calling 778-81 10. Anyone owning property for rent in Exeter who may be interested in 
placing their apartments in the Section 8 Program may call 778-81 10 for more information. 

The Public Housing Program is designed to help low income elderly (age 62 and above), disabled, 
handicapped, and family households. The four (4) locations in the Town of Exeter owned by the 
Exeter Housing Authority are: 

277 Water Street 85 1 & 2 bedroom apartments for elderly and disabled 

Linden Fields 15 family units 2-3-4 bedrooms 

Portsmouth Avenue 4 family units 

Auburn Street 3 family units 

The Exeter Housing Authority Board of Commissioners adopted a major change to the Admis- 
sions Policy of the Public Housing Program in July 1996. Date and time of receipt of the com- 
pleted application now determines the p)osition on the waiting list. Applicants will be selected 
from the list with a residency preference. Residents of Exeter will be selected from the list before 
non-residents of Exeter. 

The definition of an Exeter resident is: 

An applicant eligible for either family or disabled housing who 

* resides in Exeter 

* is employed at a work site in Exeter, or 

* has been notified that he or she is hired for work at a work site in Exeter. 

The definition of Exeter resident for Elderly Housing has been greatly expanded and now 
falls under the following definition: 

* Exeter resident is an applicant eligible for Elderly Housing who 

* resides in Exeter 



* at any time resided in Exeter for a period of two (2) successive years or ( NEW) 

* is employed at a work site in Exeter or has been notified he or she is hired for work 
at a work site in Exeter or 

* has a spouse, child, sibling, or parent who resides in Exeter (NEW). 

Those interested in the Public Housing Program should contact the office at 277 Water Street by 
calling 778-8110. 

The Exeter Housing Authority made payment in lieu of taxes to the Town of Exeter in the amount 
of $18665. 60 in 1996.

SAU 16 REPORT OF ADMINISTRATION 

William J. Clancy 
Superintendent 

Barbara L. Lobdell 
Assistant Superintendent 

Paul A. Flynn 
Assistant Superintendent 

In 1996-97, there have been significant changes in the 
profile of SAU 16 schools as the Exeter Region Cooperative 
School District was formed to assiune operating responsibility 
for Grades 6-12 on July 1, 1997. 

In addition, a successful bond issue was approved to 
support the construction of a middle-level school scheduled to 
open in September 1998. 

Also, Stratham welcomed Karen Soule as Principal of 
Stratham Memorial School, Newfields welcomed Barry Ring as 
Principal of Newfields Elementary School, and SAU 16 
welcomed Susan Ratnoff as Principal of Exeter High School. 
We certainly wish each of them continued success. 

Since this is my tenth and final year as Superintendent in 
SAU 16, I wish to commend the teachers and staffs of our 
schools for their efforts on behalf of our students. 

Our teachers and staff are recognized throughout New 
Hampshire for their expertise and practices, and I am most 
grateful to them for making our schools as good as they are. 

In July 1997, SAU 16 will welcome Arthur Hanson as 
Superintendent. We wish him much success as he leads our 
schools into the 21st century.
