STOCKTON SPRINGS — Selectmen accepted an offer from Central Maine Power Co. to replace the town’s 50-odd sodium streetlights with LED lights at no cost to the town. In addition, Town Manager Mac Smith said, the utility will maintain the lights. He expects the town to save $2,700 to $3,600 each year after the switch.

In other business, the board made a number of appointments to boards and committees, as follows: Planning Board, Wes Olmsted; Board of Assessment Review, Kathleen Kamzelski; Zoning Board of Appeals, Debbie Crosby; Harbor Committee: Kenneth Wyman, Robert Hendrickson and Michael Donahue; Shellfish Committee, Pat Curley; Cemetery Committee: Dick Pendleton and Robbie Pendleton; Recycling and Energy Conservation Committee:  Sam Fuller, Henry Martin and Wes Olmstead; Parks Committee, Lorna Russell.

Smith said all terms are three years, but not all expire in 2024, as a few were past their term expiration date.

The next selectmen’s meeting is Thursday, July 1, at 8 a.m.
