Board: Sabattus Selectmen

Met: Tuesday night, Dec. 20

A big thanks

Issue: Sabattus Fire Department’s 2,000-gallon tanker, Engine 4, has been sidelined by engine failure.

The scoop: Town Manager Andrew Gilmore said the Wales Fire Department has been on automatic response for structure fires while Engine 4 is down. Gilmore wanted Wales to know the help is “above and beyond the normal mutual aid arrangements and we’re greatly appreciative.”

Up next: Engine 4 is waiting to be towed to Public Works. The rough estimate for repairs: $200 to $10,000, depending on the level of work needed.


Odds and ends

Issue: Normand LaPlante, Paul Loesberg and Selectman James Wood were appointed to the Charter Commission and Michael Gendron to the Budget Committee.

Issue: Tax liens on 17 properties have matured. Gilmore said Sabattus doesn’t have a longtime policy for handling tax lien foreclosures and enforcing payment arrangements. He’ll bring a draft policy to the board Jan. 3.

Issue: Sabattus police are planning a safety roadblock on New Year’s Eve, part of a Holiday High Visibility Impaired Driving Enforcement Campaign funded by the Maine Bureau of Highway Safety. The time and place are under wraps.
