The Montville Select Board discussed making changes to the plowing contract, such as price per mile, quality of sand, equipment costs, and state participation in the plowing of Route 220. There have been reports of personal vehicles entering the municipal sand shed, so First Select Board member Cathy Roberts will procure a lock to prevent this.

Select Board member Sharon Hibbard reported that she discussed the Department of Environmental Protection Waste Diversion grant at the UARRC meeting, citing the pickup of recyclables as a possible project. Cathy and Sharon are going to look further into the grant. Cathy reported that Bolsters has a large container that they rent for collecting recyclables and would transport it to UARRC. Sharon suggested the town begin to collect plastic and cans at the transfer station as soon as possible.

The Select Board held a budget workshop Jan. 31 and both the Fire Department and EMD grants were discussed. The Town Office has requested two air purifiers. The Montville Fire Department has successfully delivered 1,556 baskets of food baskets to Waldo Community Action!
