TURNER — Town Manager Kurt Schaub told selectmen Monday night that a site plan application has been filed for a new Dunkin’ Donuts.

The proposed site is north of Brody Way on Cobblestone Crossing, not far from The Big Apple where Dunkin’ Donuts has a shop.

It was also announced that the property at 29 Johnson Hill Road is scheduled for auction May 11. A preview Sunday attracted interested buyers.

“Based on the amount of preview traffic, there is strong interest in the property,” Schaub said.

Selectmen are looking for volunteers to close the town beach on Bear Pond at 8 p.m. weeknights, and to open and close it on weekends. Town staff will open the beach weekday mornings. Interested volunteers should call the Town Office at 225-3414.

Selectmen discussed buying a plow truck and decided to look for another 2015 International, based on the performance of the last one they bought.

The town will advertise for a person or company to clean Boofy Quimby Memorial Center on Route 219.

The annual report to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection on the Transfer Station’s operation was filed.

“Our transition to single-sort recycling has brought about a reduction in the amount of trash that we’re sending to the incinerator in Auburn,” Schaub said. The facility switched to single-sort in 2015.

In other news, Deb Roberts has resigned as SAD 52 business manager and accepted a position with the Maine School Management Association.

Selectmen will hold a special meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, May 15, at the Town Office to interview two parties interested in becoming town assessor.

The next board meeting is set for May 15.
