POLAND — Town Manager Matthew Garside informed the Select Board on Tuesday that use of the American Rescue Plan funds passed in March can only be used locally to make up for revenue lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He said the town is slated to receive $596,000 over the next two years with $268,000 arriving shortly.

The Select Board approved Garside’s recommendation to use $50,000 of it for Hackett Mills Road.

The Select Board also learned that Maple Lane and the Elm Street Extension to Mechanic Falls will be paved this week.
