ALBION — Residents at a special Town Meeting over the weekend approved the use of almost $60,000 for paving projects in town, according to the town clerk.

The town held the meeting Saturday at the Besse Building at 22 Main St., and the warrant contained one issue for voters to address: Allocation of $59,155 from undesignated surplus for paving projects.

The Board of Selectmen is considering using the money at four locations: Quaker Hill Road, Libby Hill Road, East Benton Road and Hussey Road, according to board Chairman Michael Gardner.

Nothing has been finalized for the projects and how much work can be done will depend on how much each road will cost, Gardner said previously.

“That’s not etched in stone,” he said. “Those are the ones we are kind of chewing on.”

The $59,155 figure comes from an issue that arose several years ago when the town overpaid the school district, Gardner said. The district reimbursed the town and that money has since been sitting in surplus, prompting the board to allocate it now.

“This money has just been sitting there, so let’s use it,” Gardner said.

The only other articles on the warrant Saturday were to elect a moderator and pay the moderator a recommended $50, which also passed, according to Town Clerk Jeanie Doore.
