Livermore Approves Paving Offer to Pike Industries
LIVERMORE – Selectpersons voted Tuesday night to approve a paving offer from Pike Industries of Fairfield.
Pike’s bid of $ 331,341.25 was the lowest of the five. The others were P & B Paving of Gray for $ 445,589.85, St. Laurent & Son of Lewiston for $ 352,800, All States Construction of Richmond for $ 334,485.22 and Turner’s Spencer Group Paving for 337,677.19 $.
“It’s pretty competitive there,” said Selectperson Brett Deyling.
The work includes sections of Norlands, Goding and Waters Hill roads.
In other cases, the board has approved changes to the credit card spending limits for the fire chief and administrative assistant as part of a new credit card policy. The limit for the fire chief’s card has been increased from $ 500 to $ 2,500.
“Most things are bought on account,” said Selectperson Scott Richmond, who is also a firefighter. A major incident, such as a hazardous materials situation, could require more than what the chef is allowed, he noted.
The limit for the administrative assistant has been increased from $ 1,500 to $ 2,500.
Administrative assistant Aaron Miller said he sent 145 certified letters on land tax liens, nearly exceeding his card limit.
The council also decided to post an opening to the board of directors of regional school unit 73 on the city’s Facebook page. No one applied for the post at the June 8 municipal assembly. There were a few written votes, but all declined the job, Miller said.
The posting of the post was suggested by Miller as a way to fill the post.
“Don’t spend money,” said Mark Chrétien, Chairman of the Select Board.
