RUMFORD — Selectmen will take another whack at regionalization by convening a special board meeting in the near future with their counterparts in Mexico.
Scheduling that meeting is one of the agenda items the board is to decide at its meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in Rumford Falls Auditorium.
Among the other new business items are requests to approve a sewer main cured-in-place pipe lining-rehabilitation bid and to approve an agreement with the state transportation department to transport construction equipment.
Two bids were received at the town office to rehabilitate about 5,000 feet of pipe in the Prospect Avenue area. They are: $182,276 by Layne Inliner LLC of Fairfield and $169,076 by Insituform Technologies LLC of Chesterfield, Mo.
Town Manager Carlo Puiia said Wednesday that the bid specs were for 4,246 feet of 12-inch diameter pipe and 654 feet of 8-inch diameter pipe.
The Maine Department of Transportation is seeking a municipal permit from Rumford to allow its contractor to transport construction equipment, such as backhoes and bulldozers that exceed legal limits, over Rumford roads.
The equipment will be used to reconstruct 9.13 miles of Route 232 between Woodstock and Martin Memorial Bridge over the Androscoggin River in Rumford.
An executive session will also be held for labor negotiations with fire Chief Bob Chase.
