Subject:
Order regarding the “Call for Offer” process associated with the redevelopment and future use of the Plummer-Motz and Lunt school site to classify responses as confidential for a specific time period.         

ACTION: Council action is anticipated.
Summary:
Following an Executive Session on October 12, 2011, the Council directed the Town Attorney to prepare an Order concerning the processing of responses to the “Call for Offers” (CFO) seeking proposals for the purchase, redevelopment and future use of the Plummer-Motz and Lunt school site. Responses are due by November 29, 2011.

The Council believes that premature disclosure of information in the responses to the Call for Offers, and of the Town’s reactions to those responses, would prejudice the competitive and bargaining position of the Town as it decides on the disposition of the school site. Maine’s Freedom of Access Act, in 1 M.R.S.A. §405(6)(C), authorizes executive sessions in these circumstances.    

The Council also recognizes that there is public interest in the disposition and future use of the school site and that public comment on this should, and will, be allowed at some point in the decision-making process.

The draft Order establishes initial procedures for processing the responses to the Call for Offers and allows the Town Manager and staff to open all bids and present them to the Council in Executive Session. Note: The schedule for this generally follows Option A in the attached draft review process.
