Dover-Foxcroft awards fuel, waste contracts

DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Dover-Foxcroft Board of Selectmen on Monday awarded contracts for fuel oil and solid waste transportation.

A.E. Robinson Oil Co. was awarded a contract to provide the town fuel oil and gasoline products. The company’s bid was lower than those submitted by Webber Energy and McKusick Petroleum Co.

The town will pay less for the transportation of its solid waste this year than last. The contract for hauling solid waste was awarded to Malcolm McGraw, the town’s previous contractor. McGraw will receive $170 a trip this year compared with $183 last year. The only other bid for the service was submitted by Sawyer Environmental for $173 a trip.

The selectmen signed a resolution to take part in a regional effort that would establish a central processing recycling center at the Charleston Correctional Facility. Although the selectmen signed the resolution, there is no commitment on the part of the town, Town Manager Owen Pratt said.

The town’s 1988 police cruiser was awarded to the highest bid submitted by Janice Grant of Sangerville for $1,507. The bids submitted on the cruiser ranged in price from $300 to the accepted bid.

The resignation of Lt. Gerald Merrill from the Dover-Foxcroft Police Department was accepted. Merrill has accepted another law enforcement position. His vacant position will be advertised through the Job Service.
