Clarence announced the next Certificate of Appropriateness to the Commission for consideration.  Kirk Mohney asked Dave Cichowski about code to install a kitchen fan.  Dave said that the City does not set this type of code, but the State Fire Marshall does.  They take the lead in this process because is has to do with ventilation.  Mr. Genovese spoke and explained what the State Fire Marshall told him.  He said that his plan is to open a restaurant where Ragamuffins used to be.  Mr. Genovese said that he has discussed his plan with Downeast Energy in order to have the propane tank installed.  Clarence asked Mr. Genovese if there will be any type of soot coming from the stove ventilation.  Mr. Genovese said that there wouldn’t be.  Kirk Mohney made a motion to approve the Certificate with the recommended stockade enclosure, not a picket fence, made of wood material at least 6 inches above the top of the tank.  It must also be painted to match the trim around door.  Jean Parkin-Clunie seconded the motion to approve the Certificate.  There was no further discussion with a unanimous vote to approve the Certificate of Appropriateness.

Paula Murphy asked Dave Cichowski about the vent in the alley way beside Mad Dog Restaurant.  She said that it looks like there is grease pouring out of the vent.  Dave said it looks like some kids may have thrown some eggs at it, and he was told that this vent is just a bathroom vent.  Jean Parkin-Clunie said that there has also been some paintballs shot at the vent as well.  Dave said that he would take a look at it and speak with the tenants.
