Greenville town officials to finish Junction Wharf project, look for new police officer

By Diana Bowley, BDN Staff

GREENVILLE, Maine — It’s taken a number of years to renovate the Junction Wharf, but the last of the work is expected to be completed this summer.

Bids will be opened at 1 p.m. March 25 for the finish work, according to Greenville Town Manager Gary Lamb. That will include grinding up the existing pavement and laying it down as a binder, paving, the installation of a drain with a gravel filter to filter stormwater before it gets into the lake the planting of trees and the seeding of the area.

Town officials also are moving forward on dangerous buildings and junkyards. There are three or four buildings that appear to fit the criteria of dangerous buildings, according to Lamb. He said Jack Hart, code enforcement officer, updated the board recently on those buildings and the required procedure going forward. The buildings have multiple owners.

Selectmen are searching for a new police officer since John Matula, the Greenville Police Department’s second-in-command, tendered his resignation effective March 15. Matula, who joined the department seven months ago, wants to move closer to his wife’s family in Ohio.

Lamb said the town would look first for an in-house candidate.
