LIVERMORE — Scott Serewitz has agreed to work with Highway Foreman Roger Ferland on a turnaround for school buses and town vehicles on his property at 269 Turkey Lane, selectpersons were told Tuesday night.

Administrative Assistant Amy Byron said that for years the town had verbal agreements with the former owner of Serewitz’s property and others to construct a turnaround on their properties. Last year, she started getting them in writing.

Serewitz did not give written permission, however, and installed a fence this summer to protect his property, he said.

Last week, Byron delivered letters to residents on Turkey Lane informing them that the issue would be discussed at the Aug. 8 selectpersons meeting.

Two alternatives to using Serewitz’s property were Kurt Israelson’s land at 241 Turkey Lane and Anthony and Gina Crosby’s property at 258 Turkey Lane.

Ferland said both would require work, but he preferred the Crosby property, which is closer to the discontinued section of Turkey Lane.


Tim Lee lives on the discontinued section, which is dirt, and he plows it. He said the new turnaround would add another 100 to 200 feet he would have to plow.

Serewitz said he had spoken with attorneys and others who said allowing the turnaround was a bad idea.

“I apologize to anyone this has affected,” he said. “The turnaround looks horrible. I’m willing to work with the town for continued use of the turnaround.”  

Chairman Tom Gould said the Board of Selectpersons doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s property values.

“We’ll work something out,” Ferland said.

In other business, the $1,000 Augustus Pollard scholarship was awarded to Jennifer Byron, one of 10 applicants whose name was drawn from a hat. She attended college in New York last year and is transferring to Kennebec Valley Community College to major in occupational therapy.

Pollard established the scholarship to assist a Livermore student with higher education; the first award was made in 1980.
