WOODSTOCK — Town Manager Vern Maxfield told the Board of Selectmen on Tuesday evening that he plans to apply for a grant to help Woodstock, Greenwood and Andover pay for a revaluation.

Maxfield said Wednesday morning that the grant, which is offered through the Maine Department of Administration and Financial Services, is given to “any project that would benefit two or more towns, and lower property taxes over a five-year period.”

“The total cost of money that we’re applying for is $288,000,” he said. “Around $80,000 would go to Woodstock, $70,000 goes to Greenwood, and the rest would cover Andover.”

Maxfield said that the application would cover all three towns.

Chairman Ron Deegan told Maxfield to “go get that money.”

“I’m a firm believer in going after any grant that you could get,” Deegan said. “If you don’t get it, someone else will.”

Maxfield said that the deadline for applying for the Efficient Delivery of Local and Regional Services grant is Jan. 28.
