BY DARCIE MOORE Times Record Staff

RICHMOND — The Board of Selectmen tonight will hear an update on the Umberhine Library design and construction bids the town had received.

The town asked for proposals from licensed firms with relevant experience for the design and construction of a new municipal library, and asked that proposals be submitted to by Feb. 13.

The town received 11 bids, which selectmen will hear about tonight.

The selectmen also will hold a public hearing tonight near the start of the 6 p.m. meeting on a proposed town meeting warrant article regarding the adoption of state uniform building codes.

Agenda items for tonight include:

— An update on the Hathorn building located at 330 Front St.

— Selectmen will discuss a request by the public works department to acquire a “retired” 1988 Ford F350 from the fire department.

— Selectmen will discuss a budget for Richmond Days.

— Selectmen will discuss the possibility of adopting a military excise tax exemption.

— Selectmen will discuss possible development of an action plan for responses for small or non-emergency calls between police and fire departments. The board will discuss whether it wants to develop a protocol for what non-emergency calls the fire department will respond to, and if so, how it will go about developing that protocol.

— Selectmen will discuss a request by Sagadahoc Emergency Management to support the implementation of the Reverse 911 emergency notification system.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m. and will be held at the town office at 26 Gardiner St.
