Annual Selectmen/woman’s report 2005
    As we worked through this year we have found that one of the most
important issues in this town are the road conditions. Whether it be
summer or winter season the maintenance and upkeep of the roads have
always provided town interest and enthusiasm.
    We’d like to provide the town citizens with some updated information.
The Pond Road paving project completed about 3500 feet of new black top,
and we have received many positive comments from the residents. We
look forward to our 2006 paving project, and are suggesting resurfacing the
Rome Road.
    The summer road project on Sandy River Road included building up the
surface of the road and replacing culverts for a section of about 2000 feet,
and we hope that the improvements will provide increased safety and
better conditions. With heavy rains and extreme runoffs causing road
deterioration, we have made many road repairs and improvements. FEMA
funds allowed the repairs on Rome Road, Pond Road, Corson Road, Brown
Road and Ladd Road to be completed this past summer.
    Now, on to other interesting matters that will affect us all.
We first want to state our appreciation to the town residents for their
patience and understanding regarding any inconvenience of town office
business due to Cheryl McAfee’s illness over the past year. The
selectmen/woman and other town employees have tried to help and assist
Cheryl during these hard times and we wish only for her complete
recovery.
    Our town office has received some new equipment that has helped
improve the daily service to the town. The new telephone/ answering
machine with fax and a new copy machine had to be replaced. Additionally
we have developed a software program to assist with our tax assessing
workload. And finally, a short tax update. We incurred in 2005 an
increase in our snow removal contract. Additionally, increases in our
annual school commitment, and dump/waste management disposal fees
have soared along with fuel prices.
    The assessors and their field agent evaluated new lots, assessed new
buildings and additions, reviewed and updated the improved buildings and
other structural changes. They also reviewed tree growth applications and
the required 10 year updates, calculated penalties for acreage removed
from tree growth, and updated the list of homestead exemptions and
veteran exemptions. In addition, the assessors applied a 20% increase
town wide to the 2001 valuations of existing and unchanged structures.
This 20% increase is in line with the state’s guidelines.

Respectfully Submitted,

Norman Redlevske          Jesse Crandall     Lenore Morey

                          THANK YOU
The Selectmen/woman of the Town of Mercer would like to express
their appreciation to Harriett Varney for all the work she has
accomplished this year. Her willingness to research various topics
and present her findings has been valuable to the town officials.
For your patience, thoroughness, and dedication to the town of
Mercer, we would like to say Thank you.


Advancing the town technologically has not been an easy task, but
Fred LaPlante has succeeded in this through countless volunteer
hours on the computer system. Making the most of the town’s
electronic resources, Fred has upgraded several of our computer
programs and has donated equipment as well as time. The
efficiency of the town’s business in the future will be due, in part, to
this man’s work. Thank you Fred.

Notice to Taxpayers
    The State provides for the excising of automobiles and other
equipment on or before April 1, 2006. All such equipment not so
excised on April 1, 2006 will be assessed as personal property and
taxed at the Town rate.
    Veterans and others exempt by law must notify the Assessors in
writing on or before April 1, 2006 for tax exemptions. (If you
presently receive a Veterans exemption, no action is necessary.)
    The Assessors will be in session at the Town Office, Mercer, on
Saturday, April 1, 2006 for the purpose of receiving lists of taxable
property.


Notification of Assessors Forms
Due April 1, 2006

    At the 1992 Town Meeting, an ordinance was passed which
requires all taxpayers to notify the Assessors if they have created
new taxable property by 1) constructing a new building of over 100
sq ft; 2) expanding an existing building by over 100 sq ft; or 3)
moving a building or mobile home into town.
    The notification form, which is available from the Town Clerk, is
brief and simple. Its purpose is to make the Assessors aware of
new taxable property to help keep our tax system current, accurate
and fair. Your cooperation in complying with this ordinance would
be appreciated.

Planning Board Report
      In 2005, the Town of Mercer five-member Planning Board
          (1) reviewed and approved a four-lot subdivision;

          (2) received and approved two shoreland zoning permit
              applications;

          (3) met with the Code Enforcement Officer to receive his
              overview and to learn about the local Holding Tank
              Ordinance which the town may vote to enact;

          (4) upon learning after-the-fact of an unapproved lot
              created in an existing subdivision, guided the owner
              back to compliance; and

          (5) developed a protocol for the town office to follow upon
              receipt of a request from CMP or TDS Telecom for a
              Certificate of Compliance.

       The Planning Board also discussed comprehensive
planning. They voted to submit an article for the town to vote on at
the town meeting as to whether or not to form a Comprehensive
Planning Committee.

       Fourteen plumbing permits were issued by the Code
Enforcement Officer in 2005. Our Code Enforcement Officer of
many years, Michael Zarcone, has recently passed away. We
would like to extend our sympathy to his family and friends.
Additionally, we would like to extend a welcome to our new C.E.O,
B.J. Tibbetts of Mercer, and thank him for his interest and
anticipated participation in the year ahead.

SAD 54 School Board Report
         Last night I began reading the national best seller “The
World is Flat” by Thomas Friedman, an in-depth look at the global
supply chain for services and manufacturing in the 21 st century.
This “flattening” of the globe has and will require each of our
children to study harder and gain more skills just to stay in place.
Maine has already begun initial steps to create a more seamless
education system Pre-K to 16 (early childhood through college) that
will allow all students to meet higher standards, to ensure that
students gain access to and succeed in post-secondary education
and training.
    The Maine Department of Education has four goals;
                1. All students will be ready for Kindergarten
                2. Graduate all high school students ready for
                    college.
                3. Ensure that all college students earn a degree.
                4. Provide quality educators & required technology to
                    assure success.
Too many children enter Kindergarten with physical, social,
emotional and cognitive limitations that could be minimized or
eliminated through early attention to the child and family needs.
With the pending consolidation of Mercer, Smithfield and
Norridgewock schools, SAD 54 can redirect resources of personnel
and design the new school to accommodate Pre-K and day long
Kindergarten programs.
    Currently, only 50% of Maine high school graduates enroll in
college, and in recent years there has been a decline in students
expressing a desire to attend college, particularly among males.
Our district is moving forward to achieve a goal of 70%, and to
graduate all high school students ready for college, citizenship and
careers. The school administration has made changes to assure
that all students have equitable access to a college ready
curriculum.
    A chief reason that Maine students do not go to college is
money. Over a quarter of all public schoolchildren in Maine live in
poverty. A post-secondary education is imperative to break the

39
cycle of poverty and elevate future incomes and quality of life.
Perhaps, the Mercer Budget Committee for 2006 can lead the way
and develop a scholarship program for its youth, with the help of
local businesses & organizations.
    Finally, SAD 54 will continue to support the Laptop Computer
Program and continue to be an innovator leader of technology in
the classroom. The district has always recognized the relationship
between teacher quality, teacher preparation, and classroom
instruction to the quality and achievement level of our students. We
will continue to encourage teachers to obtain Master Degrees and
require ongoing quality professional development.
    In closing, the citizens of Mercer more than ever need to
support our school district, get involved as a volunteer or mentor,
visit our schools and attend the bi-monthly school board meetings.

Respectfully Submitted,

Bob Gardner
SAD 54 School Board Director

Burn Permits issued in 2005: 70

Reminder: Please dial 911 instead of any other non-emergency
number.

It is illegal to have an outside burn without a proper fire/burn permit.
Due to the conditions of the town burn pile, burning at the transfer
station is no longer permitted. Many inappropriate items were
placed in the burn pile. The town burn permit has been revoked for
a period of time. Further research is needed to determine
compliance for reissue of permit.

Burning in a barrel is against the law.

Recycling Report
    Mercer residents recycled 18.69 tons of waste in 2005, down 20.5%
from the previous year total of 23.5 tons. There was less contamination
this year than last year as the dump attendants and residents are putting
more effort into sorting the recycled items. The price for recyclables
remained high through 2005 allowing the Sandy River Recycling Assoc.
to replace one garbage truck, maintain equipment and offset the high
price of fuel.
    Recycling remains a cheaper alternative to Norridgewock’s Waste
Management landfill. It would be nice to see the town regain its
momentum and increase the recycled tonnage which will help lower the
cost of the waste that is sent to Norridgewock. We sent 156.1 tons of
trash to Norridgewock in 2005 resulting in a sharp increase in our waste
disposal expense. We pay $58/T for trash hauled to Norridgewock and
$40/T for recyclables sent to Sandy River. Due to an increase in
recycling revenue, Sandy River Recycling lowered the hauling cost from
$45/t in 2004 to $40/t in 2005. It’s unlikely there will ever be a reduction
in price for trash taken to Norridgewock. Obviously, less recycling means
more trash hauled to Norridgewock and therefore more expense.
    In addition, the use of the blue bags allows Mercer residents to pay
only for the waste they generate without having to bear the burden in cost
belonging to those who produce larger amounts of garbage. It’s only fair
to pay for what you throw away.

Mary Burr, Mercer Representative

Shaw Library Trustee Report for 2005
       The year 2005 was a good one, thanks to the support of this
community. We now have 7000 books and 2000 of those are youth
and children’s. 4000 books are catalogued in the computer.
       Monthly we receive beautiful new children’s books in which
we are able to purchase for a small amount if we write a book
review. Please stop by and see some of these.
       A well-received tool for the community has been our
computer with Internet service. Another popular piece of
equipment is our color copier/fax machine.
       Bonnie Dwyer from the Maine State Library came and did a
training at our request. She instructed us how to pick out for
discard books that are too old or in bad condition. That is an
ongoing project!
       We have 74 regular patrons in which 26 are children.
Please note our hours and stop in as we have a supply of videos,
tapes, CDs. There are also used books for sale.
       As always, thank you for those that have generously
contributed to our shelves.

Respectfully submitted,

Cherie Sadler, Trustee

Historical Society Report
    The Mercer Historical Society has been active in 2005 with the
move of the museum from the upstairs of the Shaw Library into the
space vacated by the Mercer Town Office. This move has made
for easier access to the Society’s artifacts for its members and the
interested public. The Historical Society was also the recipient of a
tract of land between the Mercer Vestry and the Rollins’ home. Eric
and Donna Cunliffe generously gifted the land to the Society.
    Many historical artifacts remain housed in the homes and barns
of the Society members. With the limited space in the Shaw Library
basement, it is the Society’s intention to build a barn style building
on the donated land where the larger artifacts can be housed and
be visible for the public and school students. The Farmington
Historical Society has created a wonderful replica museum, which
we would like to emulate.
    The Mercer Historical Society consists of folks interested in
preserving Maine history and sharing their information and artifacts
with others. We welcome new members and their involvement in
the community.

Respectfully submitted,
Mary Burr/President

Report of the North Pond Association
         As President of the North Pond Association, I want to give the
townspeople of Mercer a full accounting of our 2005 Milfoil Inspection Program. I
feel that all the towns bordering the lake went the extra mile helping to prevent an
infestation of these noxious weeds and I can’t thank you enough for this support.
We trained 22 people to inspect boats for Milfoil. We had 63.5 hours of paid
inspections, and an additional 66 hours of volunteer inspections. There were
almost 700 actual inspections and we sent 71 plant fragments for identification.
We covered the boat landing during the busiest hours along with almost every
day of the week.
Milfoil Program Breakdown

Income                           Expenses
Town of Mercer       $1000.00    Boat ramp sign           $137.80
Town of Rome         $1000.00    BRCA Payroll costs        $225.00
Town of Smithfield   $1000.00    BRCA admin. Costs         $500.00
Member donations     $2308.60    Total CBI salaries       $5437.22
Private Grant        $1652.80
                                 Total Milfoil expenses $6299.22
Total Milfoil income $6961.40    Carryover to 2006       $662.18 *

         Surrounding lakes have had Milfoil plant fragments, this means that we
can’t relax our efforts any time soon. We hope to inspect boats for many years to
protect North Pond from this invasive plant.
         North Pond Association became a 501c3 organization this year, meaning
that donations given to us are tax deductible. We have opened our membership
to anyone who would like to support our efforts. Individual membership are $10
and family memberships are $20. The application(s) for everyone interested can
be found at the Mercer Town Office.
         North Pond Association remains committed to continuing the Courtesy
Boat Inspection Program. With the help of the neighboring towns, we can meet
the Milfoil challenge! Again, I want to thank the voters of Mercer for their help to
the North Pond Association and ask you to continue to support us in 2006 in our
efforts to preserve and protect beautiful North Pond.

Respectfully,

Cheryl Murdock
President, North Pond Association

EMA/C.E.R.T. Activities for 2005
     The year 2005 was a busy one for the Town of Mercer Emergency
Management as it continued to upgrade and enhance its capabilities of providing
assistance to its citizens in the event of a natural or manmade incident by the
acquisition of needed equipment and the training of both staff members and
response team volunteers. Of particular note was the receipt of three grants
which totally funded the various projects without the use of local tax dollars.
     Two Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Grants totaling
$18,905 allowed us to equip our two existing teams with radios, first aid kits, fire
aid kits, fire extinguishers and other tools, provide Search and Rescue, Medevac,
CPR/AED recertification and Wilderness Medicine training, purchase and equip a
Mobile Operations Trailer, and certify two additional teams. The standards in
protocol and interoperability that the Mercer Community Emergency Response
Teams have set have made them the model that the Maine EMA and the
Somerset County EMA use to encourage the establishment of CERTs in other
jurisdictions. All that training and equipment was put to use during a Tri-County
Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) exercise held in September as the Mercer
EOC was manned during the exercise to provide radio communications and the
CERT Operations Trailer was set up at a staging area to provide logistical and
manpower support.
     A Homeland Security Grant totaling $14,460 allowed us to equip the
Emergency Operations Center and the Mobile Operations Trailer with
communications systems complete with back-up inverters and battery power. A
portion of this grant, which will provide the Elementary School with an emergency
generator and other related equipment and designate the building as a Red
Cross Shelter, is still pending.
     Continuing programs include additional enhancements of the EOC, and
additional Wilderness Medicine training toward EMT certification, Forest Fire
training and additional equipment for the new CERTs. Being added this year is
the FEMA-mandated National Incident Management System (NIMS) training for
all Emergency Management/Homeland Security Personnel as well as any and all
municipal employees who may become involved with the system.

Sandy River Recycling Association
    2005 has been another good year for the Sandy River Recycling
Association (SRRA). Member towns have recycled 1,917.6 tons in
2004. Revenue from sales of material for the calendar year was
$153,908, a decrease of $3,231 from 2004. Prices paid for
recycled material were still stable but slightly less than in the
previous year especially in the third quarter. The Association
Directors voted to keep member town allocations at $40 per ton
again this year.
    SRRA markets all of our material through a marketing co-op.
This co-op is operated by the Maine Resource Recovery Assoc.
(MRRA) a nonprofit organization. This year the co-op again
marketed more material than it budgeted for and decided to give it’s
members rebates for the second year in a row. SRRA should
receive about $800. The Directors decided to return this money to
our member towns. The shares range from about $7 to $228.
These rebates will be deducted from each member’s allocation.
This is the second year money for the sale of recyclables has been
returned to the towns.
    Total operating costs for the year 2005 were $195,098.78 or
$2,901.22 under the approved 2005 budget.
    The food waste composting pilot project we started last year is
up and running. We started picking up post consumer food waste
from the food service (Aramark) at U.M.F. in September and
Franklin Memorial Hospital in October. As of the end of 2005 we
had added almost 7 tons of food waste to leaves and horse
bedding. Some of this compost should be ready to use sometime
next summer and we are hoping to sell it to offset our operating
costs.

    Please feel free to call the SRRA office or e-mail us at
srra@megalink.net with any questions about recycling, composting,
or solid waste.
