Hebron Board of Selectmen Meeting

June 26, 2017

Hebron Town Office

Fast traffic on Route 124

What happened: Hebron Pines Golf owner Gary Kyllonen spoke to the board regarding the volume and speed of traffic on Route 124 which bisects his property. He has noticed an increase in loaded paper trucks avoiding Auburn as well as casino traffic in the past couple of years. The trees and brush encroaching the road have been making the situation more dangerous.

What it means: Kyllonen contacted the Maine Department of Transportation office to find out what can be done and said he was met with resistance. He was told the trees and bushes are the landowner’s responsibility.

What’s next: Selectman will write to the DOT with a request to get a 45 mph sign posted along that section of road as well as a “steep grade” sign for the top of the hill. He will collaborate with the town on clearing the sides of the roads and ditches there.

Roads

What happened: The Greenwood Mountain Road will be paved end to end next week.

What it means: There will be continued work along Back Street.

What’s next: Selectmen began discussions regarding lining up the 2,000 yards of gravel required for sanding the town roads in the winter. They are posting a job opening for a Public Works position with a CDL being a requirement. The recent new hire is working out very well.

Apology

What happened: Resident Harold Brooks made a public apology to the select board in lieu of a fine for not filing a map of the mass gathering held on his property prior to an event in 2016.

What’s next: Paperwork for this year’s gathering will now be processed.
