FARMINGTON — Sandy River Recycling has sold off most of its assets since it’s dissolution in June and is preparing to disburse funds to member towns, Town Manager Richard Davis told selectmen Tuesday.

Member towns are entitled to a portion of the funds gained from selling assets, he said.

Farmington’s share of the first disbursement of funds is $30,035.69 that will arrive before the end of September, he said. More is expected after the sale of the property. Davis suggested that the funds be put in the town’s unassigned fund.

Board Chairman Ryan Morgan and members Joshua Bell and Michael Fogg agreed to accept the funds with the amount deposited in the suggested fund. Members Stephan Bunker and Andrew Buckland were absent.

In other business, the board also approved hiring of Jonathan Alexander of Farmington as the shop manager/chief mechanic for the Public Works Department.

Alexander is expected to start the position on Oct. 6. He will replace present shop manager Greg Soule, who plans to retire.


He was the top choice of the hiring committee, Denis Castonguay, department director, said.

“I like his knowledge and experience,” Castonguay said. “I also like his calm demeanor. He’ll bring a younger energy into the department.”

Alexander also served as a firefighter for the town of Farmington, he added.
