WEST PARIS — The Board of Selectmen appointed Kingston Brown as alternate code enforcement officer and licensed plumbing inspector Thursday evening.

Brown is the code enforcement officer for Woodstock and Paris. He is an Army veteran who served in Iraq and has worked in property management and general contracting. His will be paid $22 per hour.

The board also approved installing LED lighting in the Fire Station, town garage and Town Office. The estimated cost is $14,891 and the work will be done by Chris’ Electric of South Paris.

Town Manager Wade Rainey said there will be a rebate from Efficiency Maine of $5,480, for a total cost of $9,511. “The projected savings are $2,490 a year and the projected payback period is less than four years,” he said.

The board voted to approve installing propane heat in the Fire Station, town garage and town hall. BC Heating of West Paris will do the work, which is expected to cost around $24,700.

Rainey said, “$27,000 was voted at town meeting and there will be some rebate from Efficiency Maine.”

Also, up to $27,000 will be spent to have Robert Henderson of Oxford build the salt shed. Rainey said Henderson was the sole bidder and the two have been discussing ways of keeping the cost down.

Rainey will order materials through the town to save on the tax.

The board also directed him to look into getting concrete anchors from a cement company in lieu of having them poured, possibly resulting in even lower costs to the town.
