Sand bid

MOUNT DESERT – The town’s contract for winter road sand was awarded to the sole bidder, MacQuinn Construction, on Monday.

Selectmen voted unanimously to accept MacQuinn’s bid of $8.44 per yard. The town uses approximately 3,000 yards of sand on slippery roads each year, public works director Tony Smith explained.

He explained the bid was $1 per yard higher than last year but was still “a fair price.”

The town has budgeted $25,320 for sand purchases this year.
