He also said that he talked to Glenn Brawn, chairman of the Howland selectmen, about his change of heart. At Monday’s selectmen’s meeting, it was announced that Lloyd would start as Howland’s town manager on May 13, succeeding David Wilson, who will become Guilford’s next town manager next month. Lloyd was set to sign his contract with Howland on April 29, according to the motion made at Monday’s meeting. Separately, Lloyd said in an interview that his scheduled last day in Lincoln would have been May 2.

MATTAWAMKEAG - Town selectmen will be seeking more bids to replace the fire departments fuel tank, citing a current estimate as too expensive. “I think that price is ridiculous,” Selectwoman Gail Seavey said during Monday night’s regular meeting. “You can go buy an oil tank like this, double barrel, and it is gong to last you 20 to 30 years, for around $500.” The town is seeking to replace the aging tank in the fire station, which recently developed a leak. Davis Welding submitted a bid for $5,318 to construct a new tank, modify the existing stand to support it, and to remove the old tank.

Restored revenue sharing could benefit town

MILLINOCKET—During the Paul LePage administration revenue sharing was lowered to 2 percent in 2015 which left towns short on expected revenue income from the state. Previously, the revenue sharing had been at 5 percent. Governor Janet Mills proposed during the State of the Union address to bring back revenue sharing to the 5 percent level. Legislative hearings are entertaining restoring the revenue sharing to 5 percent as the Taxation Committee entertains four bills that would effectively do that if passed by the legislature, according to the Manager’s Report at the regular council meeting on Thursday, April 11.

Sand bids, unsightly properties discussed in Medway

MEDWAY – The “fluke” winter is already impacting budgets for next year as the Medway Board of Selectmen had to solicit bids for more sand in order to be ready for winter 2019. Public Works Director Greg Hale said normally he has enough sand to mix and set aside but this winter, which he described as a “fluke” when presenting his budget, exhausted his supply and then some. As a result the board accepted a bid from Ben Fiske and Sons for sand at $8.98 per cubic yard for a requested 2,500 cubic yards. The $22,450 price tag, which was the low bid, is about $1,500 more than Hale had budgeted so selectmen said they would adjust that budget line accordingly. Selectman Emery “Jeff” Lee IV said this winter has been hard on budgets and everyone hoped it was an anomaly and not what we can expect.

Medway municipal budget up, wants vs needs discussed, revenue sharing unknown

MEDWAY – With budgets still being fine tuned and no decision yet on employee raises (with the exception of the mandated minimum wage increases for hourly employees), Administrative Assistant Kathy Lee said as currently presented the municipal budget is up about $140,000 which equates to about two mills. Kathy Lee also added that that’s assuming state revenues stay the same as last year. She said there is talk in Augusta of fully implementing state revenue sharing which would about double what the town gets now ($117,000 x 2) but because the town passes it’s budget before the state passes it’s budget it is unknown if that money will actually be in the state budget. Kathy Lee said obviously if the revenue sharing is increased it will directly impact and reduce the mill rate, however, Maine Municipal Association (MMA) is advising municipalities to be conservative and not budget in the anticipated revenue increases just in case it doesn’t happen or less money is approved.
