MEXICO — Selectmen authorized Town Manager John Madigan on Wednesday to seek a bond of up to $400,000 for road construction work.

If approved, the funds from the Maine Bond Bank would be used to complete the Swett Avenue road project, and work on the Mexico Avenue project.

Voters in November authorized the town to borrow up to $2 million, through bonds, for improving and upgrading some of the town’s roads.

The engineering work for both projects has been completed. If the funds come through, work is expected to be done during the upcoming summer construction season.

In a related matter, selectmen, along with the boards of the Mexico Water District and the Mexico Sewer District, plan to meet next week to review other road projects for future work.

Also at Wednesday’s board meeting, selectmen renewed mobile home park licenses for Brian and Laurie Frost, Patrick Jones and Stewart Young. A fourth renewal, that of a Pine Street park owned by Russell Oakes, was delayed until the town’s code enforcement officer has a chance to verify whether a sewer issue has been resolved, as well as the removal of debris in the park.

The board also granted a pawn broker license renewal for the Mexico Trading Post.
