MEXICO — In about a month, the Fire Department will receive delivery of an all-terrain vehicle.

Fire Chief Gary Wentzell announced recently that after years of fundraising, the department has ordered the ATV through Absolute PowerSports of Gorham, N.H. The machine includes a sled for transporting Indian water tanks to forest fires.

At a recent meeting of selectmen, the board unanimously voted to allow Town Manager John Madigan to sign an agreement with Municipal Resources Inc., a New Hampshire consulting firm, that would allow them to begin work on finding areas where Mexico and the town of Rumford could share services.

During a joint meeting on Sept. 4, selectmen from both towns approved a proposal from the company to put together a comprehensive study of Rumford and Mexico to see if they could find areas they could consolidate services.

Selectmen accepted the resignation of Tanya Vaughn from the town’s recreation board. The town is looking for someone to serve on the recreation committee. People interested can apply at the Town Office.

The board voted to schedule a public hearing at 6 p.m. Tuesday for a proposed mobile home park and mobile home ordinance.

The ordinance was created after the Planning Board decided to update the current document.
