SABATTUS — Town Manager Tony Ward told selectmen Tuesday evening that Lisbon Town Manager Diane Barns will provide a detailed analysis of animal control expenses. Sabattus contracts the services of Lisbon’s animal control officer.

The analysis is being done in response to a discussion on the animal control officer’s role in trapping and relocating animals.

Also Tuesday, the owner of Sabattus Disc Golf, Peter Ruby, filed an application for a mass gathering permit for the 2016 Women’s Disc Golf Championship on Sept. 23-26.

Selectmen will hold a public hearing on the permit Aug. 16, when more details will be given. Thousands of people are expected to attend the tournament.

Sabattus Auto & Truck Sales was awarded the 2011 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor for its bid of $1,762.

A bid for the 2006 Ford Taurus was not accepted because it did not meet the minimum requirement of $800. Ward recommended lowering the minimum price and soliciting bids again.


The board voted to nominate Selectmen Guy Desjardins and Nick Gayton for the Androscoggin Budget Committee to represent Sabattus, Lisbon and Wales. The deadline for ballots is Aug. 15.

Lisbon Town Councilor Allen Ward is also running for a seat on the committee.

The board has tentatively planned a special meeting Thursday, Aug. 25, to discuss the results of the Regional School Unit 4 budget vote set for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24, at Oak Hill High School. The board will decide whether to use the approved budget to determine tax assessments.
