LIVERMORE FALLS — Selectmen voted Monday to approve a contract with Jay that would allow that town’s children to attend the six-week Livermore Falls summer recreation program.

Jay would contribute $12,000 to the program to lower the user fees for Jay resident children to the same as Livermore Falls residents pay.

The user fee would be $30 for the first child and $10 for each additional child.

The agreement would not save Livermore Falls taxpayers money but would allow them to put on a better and expanded program for the same cost, Town Manager Jim Chaousis said.

“It doesn’t save us money but it justifies the cost,” he said.

It also opens the door to more joint sharing of services between the town, he said.

Livermore Falls residents raised $26,850 to run it this year.

The agreement would be valid from Nov. 1, 2009, to June 30, 2013. Voters in both towns will vote on the summer recreation budget at annual town meetings.

Jay selectmen will consider the contract at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 12, at the Jay Town Office.

That town’s voters raised about $20,000 to run its program this year.

In other business, selectmen voted to spend $200 for a new Web site being created to help people in the area find health care services.

The Jay, Livermore and Livermore Falls Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the site. The Chamber and Jay have already agreed to each pay $200 toward development of the site. Livermore was also to be asked Monday night for a contribution.
