At the Board of Selectmen meeting Monday, selectmen were to continue the discussion about the purchase of a $70,000 snowblower and a $20,000 shed to house the item for Pine Grove School.

At a previous meeting, there was some concern over the cost of the equipment, with Selectman Dave Petersen noting that it was quite an expense, and that a new truck with a plow could be purchased for less.

Selectman Joe Perry explained that there is a much larger area to be plowed now at the school, and the school has been borrowing the Highway Department’s snowblower.

Perry said the new snowblower is needed so it can be based at the school. A vote was not completed at that meeting so the details would be reconsidered at this week’s meeting.


The Pine Grove School PTA will hold its next meeting Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. at the school.


After meeting with the Planning Board and Town Planner Kirk Baker, resident Kevin Moriarty was recently appointed to the position of associate member of the Planning Board by the Board of Selectmen.
