STOCKTON SPRINGS — Select Board members continued to discuss how to bring high-speed internet to all residents at their March 3 meeting.

They received an invitation from Winterport Town Councilor Kevin Kelly, who had also attended a Feb. 17 community information meeting on broadband. Kelly said his town would like to work with Stockton Springs and a couple of other towns to bring broadband to the area. Town Manager Mac Smith told The Republican Journal March 3 that Kelly would bring a draft Memorandum of Understanding to the next Select Board meeting. So far, Smith said, there have been no volunteers to serve on a town broadband committee.

The board reviewed heat pump bids, but postponed taking action until Recycling Committee members could be present. They hope to award the bid at their next meeting, Smith said.

In other business, the board approved and signed off on a Harbor Public Storage Policy that provides for harbor-related nonprofits to use public space at the harbor for storage with the permission of the harbormaster. No others will be allowed to use the public space for storage.

The next meeting is March 17 at 8 a.m. at the Town Office.
