ation in any long term consideration.

It is recommended that the Town proceed in this
direction under the leadership of a new Mosquito
Control Committee chairman.

The possibility of joining the Essex County
Mosquito Control Project on a regional basis should
also be fully investigated.

Seabrook should continue the Mosquito Control
Program for the welfare and comfort of its people.

Youth Study Committee



Appointed as a new committee in 1978, the Youth Study Committee
was commissioned by the Board of Selectmen to begin analyzing youth
problems and programs in the community. The ultimate goal is that
members of the committee will make recommendations to the Selectmen
which may help solve some present youth problems.

Areas of conern to the group this year included a discussion
of a curfew, such as one enacted in Hudson, New Hampshire. If one
were used, it might be needed only in certain times of the year, such as
at Halloween, which has traditionally been a difficult time for local
property owners.

One recommendation forwarded to the Selectmen was that Seabrook
participate in an area Big Brother/Big Sister program. This has been
quite successful in other towns, and may help develop children in fam-
ilies which lack one parent, or are too large to provide each child
with healthy recreation or entertainment opportunities.

During 1979 a list of all organizations presently serving youth
in our area will be assembled. From the representatives of these,
students in the local schools could learn what each group has to offer.
Thereby, children could be exposed to new activities, clubs, or
athletic organizations. It may be determined, by this project, that
there are some services needed which are not presently being offered,
but should be. This could aid in planning and fostering new projects.

SEABROOK CONSERVATION COMMISSION

The Town of Seabrook re-established a Conser-
vation Commission this year. Committee members in-
clude Robert Quayle, Chairman, Catherine Silver,
Secretary, Rev. Elizabeth Walton, Harry R. Knowles,
Warren Crawford, Daniel Gretch and Madalene Castleton.

On June 22, 1978 the Board of Selectmen met with
them to discuss the goals and objectives, as set forth
in the New Hampshire statutes. The Commission would
be, ideally, non-political, unbiased, citizens united
by a common interest in the proper utilization and
protection of Seabrook's natural resources.

We meet regularly each month to clarify these
goals. We have started keeping a file and a index
of other agencies and projects to avoid costly dup-
lications and conflicting projects.

As individuals we have spent many hours read-
ing, sifting, sorting and discussing several years
accumulations of printed information.

We have consulted other conservation Commis-
sions and related agencies to build a firm foundation
for our future work. It is a slow process.

Seabrook's valuable and irreplaceable marsh-
land and seashore seemed to be the prime area of con-
cern so we have directed this years efforts in that
direction .

We hope that our approach toward a solution
to current problems, through a zoning amendment,
meets with the approval of the residents.

Madalene Castleton, Member

AUDITOR'S OPINION



We have examined and audited the accounts and records of the Town of
Seabrook, New Hampshire for the fiscal year ended December 31, 1977.

Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards and accordingly, included such tests of the accounting records and such
other auditing procedures as were considered necessary in the circumstances.

In accordance with the practices followed by the Town of Seabrook, there
is no record of the fixed assets or capital contributions in the Water Department.
Because of the material effect of the omission of fixed assets and related depre-
ciation on the financial position, we do not express an opinion on the financial
statements of the Water Department as of December 31, 1977.

In our opinion, subject to the qualifications in the preceding paragraph
covering the Water Department, the accompanying balance sheets and statements of
sources of revenue and expenditures present fairly the financial position of the
Town of Seabrook, New Hampshire at December 31, 1977 and the results of its
operations for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting
principles applicable to governmental entities, applied on a consistent basis.

Respectfully submitted,
