ROXBURY — The Board of Selectmen on Tuesday will review a letter from the Maine Department of Transportation which is offering a radar speed display sign.

The board will meet at 6 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Town Office.

The board last year heard complaints from Stan Kaubris and several other residents that vehicles were driving too fast on Main Street. At its October meeting, selectmen received many suggestions from residents about how to combat speeding, including:

• Installing speed bumps;

• Appointing volunteers to pass out educational pamphlets on speeding;

• Installing speed limit signs with flashing lights;

• Constructing a sidewalk on one side of the road;

• Installing “children at play” signs; and

• Placing a portable sign that flashes the speed of oncoming vehicles.

Other items on Tuesday’s agenda include:

• Discussion of the town’s tobacco policy updates.

• Updates on several town projects, including the town website, a proposed salt/sand shed and a proposed cell service tower.

• Discussion of forestry practices around Byron and Roxbury Pond.
