PITTSFIELD — First-of-the-year housekeeping matters will be the subject of the Town Council’s first meeting of 1998 on Tuesday.
Councilors elected in November, Tim Nichols and Tom Cote, will be sworn in and seated, and the full council will elect a new mayor and deputy mayor. Former Mayor Yvonne Young did not run for re-election this fall.
The council also will vote on two ordinances that would change the speed limits on two Pittsfield roads. The changes, lowering the speed on Industrial Park Road to 45 miles per hour from 40 mph, and setting the speed limit on Eelwier Road at 40 mph, were recommended by the traffic engineering division of the Maine Department of Transportation.
In other business, a variety of committee appointments will be made to fill 31 vacancies on a large number of town boards ranging from the airport, pool and theater committees to the board of appeals, board of assessment review, board of ethics and board of health.
Councilors also will vote on a blanket letter of approval for beano games at the Sebasticook Valley Lodge of Elks and waive an automatic foreclosure on a Higgins Road property.
