LIVERMORE FALLS — Proposed upgrades to the Livermore Falls sewage treatment plant are estimated at between $7.6 and $7.9 million.

Jay and Livermore Falls will share the cost, Livermore Falls Board of Selectmen Chairperson Heather Bronish said at Tuesday’s meeting.

She said Jay Sewer Department Superintendent Mark Holt, who was not able to attend the meeting, had emphasized that the cost had not been finalized.

“He didn’t want Livermore Falls citizens to think it’s happening without them or behind closed doors,” she said.

Selectmen voted to table any action until their June 19 meeting for further explanation.

They also voted to delay action on a land purchase, pending further information. Addie Taylor, who owns a building beside the Livermore Falls Public Works Department on Park Street, had offered the structure and land it’s on to the town for $23,500.

Selectman George Cummings said the town may need extra land in the future.

“I think before we refuse it, we should give it a little thought,” he said.

“I don’t want to buy it,” Bronish said.

In another matter, selectmen voted to accept the Androscoggin Unified Emergency Management Agency Plan. Bronish said the plan would provide the town with county funds for certain projects, such as work on town roads.

Cummings asked if the town had received a completed audit, and Tax Collector and Treasurer Dawn Young said it had. Cummings said he’d like to have the auditor come to a meeting to answer questions about the audit.

In other business, selectmen approved Kathy Langlin as a Planning Board member.

“We definitely could use more people on the Planning Board,” Young said.

The Town Office will be closed June 12 for elections, and June 29 to close books for the fiscal year, which ends June 30.
