Board: Sabattus Selectmen
Met: Tuesday night

Fire station mold

Issue: After having issues with air quality and moisture, Pure Energy Pro ran tests on the fire station and identified six species of mold. Fire Chief Don Therrien said he found mold growing inside of helmets.

The scoop: PEP gave a quote of $9,312 to remove the mold and vent the building, with a 20-year warranty.

Up next: Selectmen discussed possibly getting a second quote and seeing how to fix the problems that let water into the building. The fire equipment is being temporarily moved to Public Works.

Brush, dozer for sale

Issue: Selectmen opened three bids for removing the town’s big brush pile and awarded the project to Affordable Well Drilling, which will pay Sabattus $5 for each ton removed.

Issue: The board decided to sell a small Public Works bulldozer, as is, where is.

Up next: After concerns were raised about another piece of equipment, a road grader that gets loaned out to residents, selectmen decided to look into liability issues and whether it ought to be sold.

Appointments galore

Issue: Selectmen signed a half-dozen appointment papers for: Donat Fournier Jr. as EMA director; Paul Loesberg as a member of the Sabattus Lake Dam Commission; Steve LeBrun as E911 addressing officer; David Gilbert as a Planning Board member; Rani Allard as treasurer; and Alan Leblanc as AVCOG representative.
