Vassalboro Sanitary district topic of meeting

by Mary Grow

The Dec. 14 Vassalboro select board meeting will be in the Vassalboro Community School cafeteria, instead of the town office, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Town Manager Aaron Miller said the change is to accommodate the large crowd expected because of the first agenda item, “Discuss Vassalboro Sanitary District.”

The main issue is that sanitary district fees are stressing the budgets of residents of East and North Vassalboro. The district is in debt, mostly because of its recently-completed connection to the Winslow-Waterville system. Additionally, Winslow sewer rates have gone up.

At a Dec. 6 community meeting, some three dozen residents discussed information they hope to gain Dec. 14. They developed a list of questions to put to town and sanitary district officials and to Vassalboro’s state representatives, Senator Matthew Pouliot and Representative Richard Bradstreet.

Also on the Dec. 6 select board agenda are Vassalboro’s Tax Increment Finance District; local implications of a new state law on affordable housing; providing a generator at the town office (see the Nov. 23 issue of The Town Line, p. 3); proposed updates to cemetery rules; and engineering services for a new transfer station building (see the Dec. 7 issue of The Town Line, p. 3).
