FAYETTE — The sale of the former Fayette firehouse attracted four proposals by Friday’s deadline.

Selectmen will review that bid response at their regular meeting at 7 p.m. today at Starling Hall.

The town is marketing its former firehouse for redevelopment and sought proposals from interested buyers.

Those proposals had to indicate how the building’s new use would enhance the neighborhood and benefit the community. The request for proposals says the winning bidder will be announced no later than Nov. 26.

The former fire station, which is at least a half-century old, is on Route 17, directly across the road from the Fayette Country Store on a quarter-acre.

The firehouse lacks running water, and the property currently has no septic system.

Selectmen can reject or accept any proposals, according to Town Manager Mark Robinson.

In other business at tonight’s regular meeting, selectmen are expected to appoint a representative to the Kennebec Valley Council of Governments, review a draft road policy that discusses public easements, and meet with a property owner about a property-tax foreclosure.
