Gardiner elected officials are slated to consider buying and selling property when they meet Wednesday.

City officials have the opportunity to acquire the property at 152 Summer St. from Pauline Oben. The lot, about one-third of an acre, is next to property where the city’s Cobbossee Trail is expected to be located. After some negotiating, city officials are expected to offer $7,500 for the land.

They will also have a chance to consider, after an executive session, whether they will sell a lot in the Libby Hill Business Park . Twelve lots remain for sale at the park, which is located at the south end of Gardiner just off Interstates 95 and 295.

The city is also abating the hazardous materials at 18 Dennis St. so the building on the property can be demolished. Two offers have surfaced, one for salvage wood and architectural salvage, and the other for three awning-style windows for councilors to consider.

The council will also:

• consider the second and final reading of a proposed moratorium related to recreational marijuana sales and social clubs;

• hold a public hearing on and consider accepting a Community Development Block Grant Microenterprise Assistance grant;

• consider revised policies on purchasing, disposal of tax acquired properties and other city property and mailbox replacement policy;

• discuss downtown sidewalk winter maintenance;

• consider a liquor license renewal for the Gardiner Elks Lodge 1293;

• consider sewer abatement requests;

• consider extending an option agreement with Developers Collaborative for properties on Summer Street following an executive session;

• consider a memorandum of agreement with the firefighters union following an executive session.

The Gardiner City Council meets at 6 p.m. Wednesday in City Council chambers at the Gardiner City Hall at 6 Church St.
