Schmid Preserve management plan set for this fall

It’s been two decades since Schmid Preserve’s forest management plan has been updated, but that will change this fall. Schmid Advisory Board Chairman Lisa McSwain told Edgecomb selectmen Sept. 7, Midcoast Forestry of Warren, who created the original plan, will update its work in the coming weeks. Earlier this year, the town received a Maine Forest Service grant to fund the project.

In other action, Chairman Dawn Murray reported the Department of Transportation will begin work on Eddy Road beginning the week of Sept. 22 or 29. “They won’t begin work on the Eddy Road until they finish up on Route 27,” she said.

Murray and Selectman Mike Smith approved appointing Corning Townsend to another one-year term as harbor master and David Nutt as the assistant harbor master. Selectmen also renewed a liquor license for Glidden Point Oyster Farm and hired Cricket Klein and Matt Thompson to clean the town hall on a regular basis. 

Selectmen meet next at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 20 in the town hall.
