WILTON — Voters will gather Tuesday for a special town meeting to consider appropriating $300,000 for hazardous abatement and/or demolition at the Forster Mill property.

During the meeting, which will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Office, voters will also decide whether to approve requests for the town to apply for and administer two Community Development Block Grants.

Money for demolishing the town-owned Forster Mill property is being sought through a loan from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development’s hazardous waste cleanup program. 

Lovett Woodworks, dba Maine Made Furniture, located at the former Bass building on Weld Street, is seeking a $50,000 grant from the Department of Economic and Community Development under the Workforce Development Program for training employees. 

Another warrant article asks voters to consider a $240,000 CDBG grant application under the Economic Development Program for Carrier Welding and Fabrication on Depot Street.

Nathan Carrier seeks $240,000 in grants and will secure $270,000 in loans to buy more equipment and provide operating capital for the business.
