DIXFIELD — Selectmen will continue discussing at Tuesday evening’s meeting the Safe Routes to School project.

The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Ludden Memorial Library basement.

In early 2013, the town agreed to build 3,500 feet of sidewalk from Dirigo High School to T.W. Kelly Dirigo Middle School, and construct a sidewalk the length of Nash Street to the Regional School Unit 10 superintendent’s building. The cost would be split 80-20 between the town and the Maine Department of Transportation.

The Nash Street sidewalk project was abandoned last month because the $68,201 cost was considered too high.

During a special town meeting on Oct. 1, residents overwhelmingly voted against appropriating $46,850 from surplus as a 20 percent match for the Weld Street sidewalk.

Other items on the agenda include the following:

* Police Department report on cruiser bids.

* Public Works Department report on winter sand bid.

* Review of Maine Power Options agreement for electricity.

* Maintenance agreement for Maine DOT traffic signal replacement project.
