RECAP TOWN COUNCIL MEETING – NOVEMBER 5TH

Last night’s Town Council meeting was a special night for some of our young people.  The meeting started off with two proclamations for the Recreation Departments Pee Wee Football Team and the Youth Football Team.  Both of these teams won their division at the Central Maine Championships.  Congratulations to Mark Stevens, the players and coaches for a job well done.

Under Council Orders, Resolutions & Ordinances – The Boston Gold Post Cane Award went to Mrs. Virginia Tardiff who turned 100 years old on September 30, 2014.  The Council also approved the Library to send in a letter of interest and apply for the 2014 Community Health Information Partnership (CHIP).  The Council approved the lease to purchase of a 2015 Ford F-550 from Whited Ford Truck Center for $52,669.00 for the Public Works Department.  Next, the Council approved the annual audit bid to RHR Smith & Company for $22,117.00 per year for 5 years.  The Council also approved the Timber Harvesting of Beaver Park for $65.00 per hour plus $12.00 per gallon of paint to the forester.  And finally, the new Town Attorney has a conflict in representing the town in dealings with Miller Hydro & Miller Industries Properties.  So the Council authorized the Town Manage to negotiate with another firm that does not have a conflict of interest on only this situation.

Under Other Business – The Town Manager announced the retirement of Duncan Daly from Public Works effective January 2, 2015.  The Town Clerk read the results of the election.  If you want more information on the election results, they can be found on the town web site.
