Biddeford Sanford Journal Tribune (Newspaper) - August 13, 1980, Biddeford, Maine Commissioners Nix civil defense bid for extra Money Bykari Ejeffrey Sanford Bureau Alfred a recently appointed civil emergency preparedness Cep director Philip Atkinson is going to have to run the county civil defense office on a budget amounting to Little More than $3,000 for the remainder of this year. And whether this will be enough Money for Cep employees to Complete town and county evacuation plans As required by the Federal government is not known. Atkinson could not be reached for comment after county commissioners shot Down a plea for additional Cep Money by the offices former director York county jail administrator Richard Haskell. Citing an Overall county deficit projected at $100,000 by the end of this year commissioners at a special meeting called tuesday night rejected recommendations by Haskell who requested an additional $7,200 for Cep. Haskell later trimmed this request to $6,500, but commissioners rejected that request As Well. The Cep budget approved by the legislature at $25,549 was about two third less than Haskell a request at the beginning to the 1980 budget process. He claims that the extra funds requested for Cep could come from Federal funds earmarked for Cep but now placed in the county a general fund. But according to the legislative resolve a the county budget mandated by the legislature a expenditures for Cepus budget this year should not exceed $25,549, Federal funds or no Federal funds. Haskell went 0 for 2 last night in front of commissioners when they also rejected his recommendation for a jail communications project that could have Cost the county up to $11,000 As Well As a request for the installation of one Way Glass in certain portions of the county jail. Commissioners were supposed to open bids on the communications project a project that called for installation of cell Call buttons and two Way speakers in the jail cell blocks. Instead these bids will be returned unopened to the companies who sent them out and commissioners will postpone a any action on the recommendations. J. Peter Dennett county commission chairman says the projected $102,411 county deficit is caused in part by overcrowding at the county jail first opened for business in june 1979. He cies monthly prisoner counts of 50 for the jail with a cell capacity of 35, which Means that an average of 17 prisoners a Day is boarded outside the county. Last year the county wound up with a $62,500 deficit which Dennett attributes to the same problem a overcrowding at the York county appeals court ruling on Anderson Augusta Maine up attorney general Richard Cohen said today Maine will Appeal a Federal court ruling that gave Independent presidential candidate John b. Anderson a spot on the states november election ballot. Cohen following the Lead of Ohio for a . Supreme court ruling said thai state has already raised questions regarding the constitutional issues surrounding judge Edward t. Gignoux this weeks if he found no reason to uphold the states april i deadline for filing 4,000 petition signatures a a Date Anderson supporters said was top Early in the presidential selection process. Cohen said Ohio has already asked the nation s highest court to review a lower court ruling that struck Down a state statute standing in Andersons path. Quot were we not to Appeal there might be some question whether we could Benefit from a favourable decision of the supreme court should one be forthcoming a Cohen said. The attorney general said the states Appeal would be filed in the 1st . Circuit court of appeals in Boston. Secretary of state Rodney s. Quinn said tuesday an Appeal would be a a continued Page 12 Ceil a Anderson incentive zoning plan set for Public hearing Bubo Saunders Sanford Bureau chief Sanford a a Public hearing to discuss creation of several More general residence zones and to unveil a rewritten incentive zoning provision will be held by the planning Board aug. 26, but Only the incentive zoning proposal will be readied for consideration by this years december town meeting. In discussion tuesday night the Board decided that it has too Little time to prepare a town meeting proposal to rezone several pieces of in town land to allow apartments and other general residence uses but added that after discussion of the move at the Public hearing it will proceed to prepare a rezoning proposal for the town meeting to be held in the Spring of 1981. The incentive zoning proposal if approved by the town meeting would allow a density Bonus to developers building in areas on the Periphery of the Urban Core if they site Homes for solar accessibility and if they voluntarily extend sewer lines to serve their development. Currently the ordinance allows two Homes per acre in the developing residence zone. Solar siting would be Worth a Bonus of one fourth unit per acre or one additional Home for every four acres of land. Developers More than 1,500 feet away from sewer lines who extend the service at their own expense would be entitled to a Bonus of half a unit per acre and developers who extend lines More than 2,000 feet would be entitled to three fourths units per acre. That Means a Developer who extended sewer lines and used proper siting techniques for Access to solar heating would be entitled to three Homes per acre rather than two. The Power to approve the higher development density would rest with the planning Board. Currently a Developer must connect to Public sewers if his development is within 1,500 feet of a line. The Board has dropped an incentive zoning provision from the proposal which would allow a Bonus for developers who provide funding or land for Public facilities or equipment that would reduce the Impact of development. That provision met resistance from local officials when proposed prior to the Spring town meeting this year. Planners indicated they have several specific areas in mind for rezoning a an area to the East of .

Town planner Thomas Ursia has talked to Miltiades Vargelis owner of the parcel and says Vargelis initially resisted the possibility that a strip of business land along the main Street Edge of the land might be rezoned to residential use. Ursia says Vargelis was More willing to allow rezoning of the single residence land a about 24 of the tracts 27 acres a at the rear. Ursia says that while the Board has the Power to recommend a zone change without Vargelis concurrence bucking the landowner would probably result in a Long court Battle.
