LIVERMORE FALLS — Selectmen set a special meeting for 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 10, to continue work on the 2015 municipal budget and to further discuss the possible acquisition of two former school buildings.

Town Manager Kristal Flagg said she expects the final budget to be ready for action by selectmen in early April.

The previous budget was $2.24 million. The tax rate was $21.10 per $1,000 in assessed property value.

So far, several of the larger departments have not requested an increase.

The board plans to tour the former Livermore Falls High School on Monday, March 9. Regional School Unit 73 has offered it and the former Livermore Falls Middle School to the town.

Also at Monday’s meeting, the board agreed to join area towns and the school district in purchasing diesel fuel for $2.269 per gallon. Flagg said the price is 92 cents lower than last year.


The board heard a presentation from Safe Voices Director Julia Tietel, who requested that the board place an article on the town meeting warrant in support of her organization.

She said Safe Voices has assisted 34 residents in town during the past year.

In other matters, the board:

* Appointed Bob Berry as a Water District trustee; and

* Identified a candidate to receive the Boston Post Cane. That person, who is 96 years old, will be honored at 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 17, before the board meeting. The town does not present the cane but a plaque with the person’s name inscribed on it.
