NEW GLOUCESTER — Selectmen on Monday opened 11 bids for gravel and riprap for the reconstruction of the Woodman Road, a project that awaits voter approval at the June 3 annual town meeting.

Public Works Director Ted Shane will review the bids for sub-base, standard surface and riprap standard and advise the board prior to awarding the contract. The board said contracts on each type of product could be awarded separately, if necessary.

Article 13 at the annual town meeting asks the town to vote to appropriate $285,000 from Capital Reserve, $98,903 from Road Reconstruction Account and $186,097 from the Woodman Road account, for a total of $400,000.

The annual town meeting will be held at 7 p.m. June 3 at Memorial School on Route 231. Voter registration begins at 6:30 p.m.

The public must enter the main entrance of the building and preregister before entering the school gymnasium where voting will take place on the 34-article warrant.

Selectmen OK’d the SAD Budget Validation Referendum and the town and SAD 15 election warrant unanimously.

That referendum vote will be held from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. June 11 at the New Gloucester Fire Station on Route 100, a change of location from the past.

The warrant calls for the public to vote by secret ballot for two selectmen and two directors for SAD 15, all for three-year terms.

The annual Memorial Day Parade will begin at 9 a.m. Monday, May 27, at the AMVET Post 6 Hall on Route 100 and proceed to Memorial School on Route 231 where a memorial service will be held.
