POLAND — If all goes as planned, the town will have completed the purchase of Camp Connor by the end of the week.

At a meeting Tuesday night, Town Manager Matthew Garside was given authorization to finalize the purchase of the camp from the Auburn-Lewiston YMCA.

Selectmen on Tuesday spent considerable time discussing the Camp Connor Purchase and Sale Agreement with documents related to the transaction indicating a sale price of $210,000. A closing date of Nov. 10 was specified.

The YMCA had run a co-ed program at Camp Connor on Lower Range Pond for several decades. It is expected that the Poland Recreation Department will use the camp to augment its youth programs.

According to the WMCA website, the camp includes a large playing field, beach, wooded areas, adventure island and lodge.

Also at the Tuesday night meeting, selectmen reviewed repair estimates for the Town Office heating and cooling system. The bids range from slightly more than $6,000 to just under $10,000.

A contractor was chosen to perform the work, Garside said. On Wednesday, he was in the process of finalizing that contract.
