The Board of Selectmen of New Portland is accepting bids for the purchase of the municipality’s interest in New Portland’s tax-acquired properties.  Each bid must be in writing and in a sealed envelope marked “Tax sale bid” on the outside.  Each bid may be for one property only; any person wishing to bid on several properties must submit a separate bid for each one.  The Board of Selectmen must receive all bids no later than 5 o’clock p.m. on December 15, 2014.  Late bids will not be opened or considered.

Each bid must also include the bidder’s name, mailing address and phone number and must be accompanied by a deposit in the form of a certified check or money order, in an amount equal to or greater than 10% of the bid price.  Each successful bidder’s deposit will be credited to the total purchase price for that parcel.  Deposits will be returned to the unsuccessful bidders.  Any bid, which does not contain the proper deposit, will be rejected.

Bids will be opened, reviewed and awarded by the Selectmen at the Town Office on December 15th at 6:30 p.m.  The Board of Selectmen reserves the right to reject any and all bids.  Each successful bidder shall have 30 days from the date of the bid acceptance in which to complete the purchase.  Each property will be conveyed by a quitclaim deed without covenants.  In the event that a successful bidder fails, for any reason, to complete the purchase in the time stated, the bid acceptance is void and the bidder’s deposit shall be forfeited to the Town.  The Board of Selectmen may thereafter negotiate a sale of the property with any or all-unsuccessful bidders.

The properties for sale are described on the Towns Tax Maps as:

Map 017 Lot 091 – Land Only on Carrabassett Rd. (RE # 401)

Meeting at Enviro-Mats update

Andrea and Stacie met with the new manager of Enviro-Mats, Ron Clark, on Thursday October 30th to discuss noise issue.  Ron Clark has been at the mill for approximately 6 weeks.  They have been making changes to reduce noise levels by enclosing the building where the debarker and chipper are located.  They have put up sliding walls that have 2 inch insulation.  They have hung mill felt over a 24 foot opening, and are in the process of putting up more insulation and solid walls in the building.

They have ordered 2 double walled trailers for the chips to go into.  This should reduce the noise level when the chips enter into the trailers.

Enviro-Mats is trying to mitigate the noise.  The work is not complete yet, but Andrea and Stacie are hopeful their efforts will help.

Andrea and Stacie will follow-up with the progress of the work they are doing to reduce the noise levels.

Enviro-Mats is also sharing the 2 critiques that Jean Antonucci’s sound specialists submitted with RSE, which is the company that did the sound study last year.  It is hoped that RSE will review these critiques and provide feedback on them.

Andrea asks that Jean and any others hearing the noise to take note of any changes, improvements, or no changes at all and keep the town informed.

Hello everyone, I would like to let you know that I have neglected my duties with putting the New Portlanders on the website.  I seriously didn’t realize I was soo far behind.  Geesh July…WoW… But you will find that they are all there now.  Moving forward I am positive this will not happen again as I wrote it in big black letters on a sticky note with my New Portlander information to POST ON WEBSITE….I’ll admit it, I’m human..
