Selectmen will hold a public hearing Tuesday night to determine whether a Wilton Road home owned by a Massachusetts man is a dangerous or nuisance property.

The uninhabited home at 130 Wilton Road, across from the former Rite Aid, is owned by Ted Gay, of Westwood, Mass. The selectmen could seek to declare it dangerous and tear down the building in accordance with a state law.

The hearing was first set to be held in September, after the town received numerous complaints about the property, but selectmen postponed a public hearing after Gay was determined to have had inadequate time to prepare for the hearing.

Selectmen agreed at the time to give Gay an additional 60 days to come up with a mitigation plan for the property after learning that he and his attorney were not served with the proper paperwork in time to prepare for a September hearing.

Other business to be discussed includes

• an update from George Allen, VP and general manager of Beeline Cable Company;

• an offer from Walmart to improve the Butterfield Cemetery on Red Schoolhouse Road;

• authorize the police department to accept a grant to replace the department’s Tasers;

• accept an anonymous donation of $1,000 to the Parks and Recreation Department;

• schedule a dedication ceremony for Bjorn Park;

• an executive session for the manager’s annual performance evaluation.
