Kenneth Irving, Jr. (plaintiff) and a majority of the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Clinton, Maine (the Town) (defendant) signed a document which provided that Irving would have the exclusive right to plow the Town’s snow-covered roads from October to May in exchange for payment of approximately $108,000. The agreement was contingent upon voter approval by the Town’s residents. At the Town’s annual meeting, a resident moved to reduce the agreed-to payment price from $107,723.96 to $99,999. The amendment passed, and the Town offered Irving the amended agreement, which he refused. Irving filed suit against the Town for breach of contract. The trial court granted the Town’s motion for summary judgment. Irving appealed.
