MEXICO — Discussion on the town’s amended ATV policy and approval of several toll road requests are on the agenda for selectmen at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Calvin P. Lyons room of the Town Office.

At the June 10 board meeting, selectmen voted unanimously to approve ATV access on Mitchell, Granite, Hill, Pine and Brook streets after Clyde Wardwall, trail master of the Mexico ATV Riders, made a request.

Other changes in the ATV policy included increasing the speed limit from 10 to 15 mph for ATVs and allowing residents to travel less than 500 yards on any road to access an approved trail or a road that allows ATV access.

Following the vote, Selectman Reggie Arsenault asked Wardwall to return to the board in September to see if there were any complaints about opening the ATV access to the streets mentioned.

Selectmen will also entertain several toll road requests from local organizations.

Selectmen voted in August to place a limit of four toll roads on Main Street between Labor Day and Memorial Day.


Toll road requests include one from Mike Perry for Girls Youth Sports and from Praise Assembly of God church for the Culture of Compassion and Mission Possible Youth Group.

Other agenda items include:

* Junkyard license renewals for Cogley’s Auto Parts and Dick’s Auto Sales

* Taxicab license for Private Taxi.

* Continued discussion on town property.

* Bids for winter sand and fuel oil, and proposals for roof repairs at the Public Works garage.


* Appointment of two alternate Planning Board members.

* Discussion to designate a voting delegate for Maine Municipal Association convention.

* Discussion on creating a tax club similar to Rumford’s.

* Replacement of Honored Citizen sign.

* Executive sessions to select recipients for Night of Appreciation Awards, and to discuss Police Department union negotiations.
