GARDINER — When Gardiner elected officials meet Wednesday, they will consider three bids to buy a mobile home park that the city acquired through a sewer foreclosure.

City staff members have been working to get properties acquired by the city back on the tax roles, and the Iron Mine mobile home park on Old Brunswick Road is one of them.

The Gardiner City Council have voted that one of the stipulations on the sale of the property is that it must remain a mobile home park for two years so that the people who live there won’t see a disruption to their residences in the short term.

Kathleen Cutler, tax collector for the city of Gardiner, said the park can accommodate up to 14 homes; about seven are livable now.

An executive session is scheduled for the start of the meeting to discuss the options that Developers Collaborative has on three parcels at the former T.W. Dick site on Summer Street.

Elected officials are also expected to:

• Hold a public hearing and have a second read of proposed changes to the requirements for signs in the city’s Land Use Ordinance;

• Consider giving permission for the staff at Johnson Hall to rent a portable bathroom for use during the summer outdoor concerts at Waterfront Park because the permanent bathrooms are too far away for the elderly and disabled;

• Discuss bids for the city’s sidewalk project; a second round of bids has exceeded the project budget;

• Consider approving City Council meeting minutes;

• Consider granting a victualer’s license for “Sweet Carolynn’s.

The Gardiner City Council meets at 6 p.m., Wednesday in the City Council chamber at 6 Church Street.
