Minor suggestions

My suggestions for some departments...

- Move business licenses to Town Clerk office, where people expect licenses
- Reduce fee of business licenses by 50%; allow payment anytime in year

- change tree cutting policies - collect large fees for trees over a certain diameter being cut, charge steep fines for violations. (use this to make up and exceed "lost income" from business licenses being reduced). Demand replacement trees be planted along sidewalks and roads.

- Lumber Inspector and Weigher of Coal are obsolete. Drop them - waste of time. (Fence Viewer still used...)

- Consider some free parking for library patrons where police used to park at Municipal Center.
