NOTICE: In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the Town Office has new procedures to help protect our employees and customers from giving or receiving this virus:
*Customers MUST call ahead before coming to the office. Appointments are necessary to spread out the number of customers in our office at one time.
*Customers MUST sanitize their hands before AND after transacting business. We have a large bottle of sanitizer on our counter. Customers are encouraged to wash their hands in the bathrooms upon entering the building. 
*Customers who are sick in any way (cold, recovering from treatment, etc)--Please stay home!! Call the office if any business needs to be done. This also applies to customers who have recently returned from a trip that required them to leave the state of Maine.
*We request payments be made by check or credit card. We will take cash if necessary, but would like to limit the amount of cash we handle in the office.
*Customers are encouraged to use our online services (see "Online Services" under the Town Government tab on this website). You can register your vehicle, snowmobile, ATV, Boat, and make tax payments all online. As always, these things can also be done through the mail. Give Corrine or Sarah a call--207-435-4361--to discuss options.

Upcoming Events:

Register your location for $15 and have your yard sale advertised on a special map. Whoopie Pies must be sold. Contact Corrine @ 207-227-0819 or at the Town Office 207-435-4361 FMI.
