Coming Events:         


Youth Summer Softball Registration Forms are available at the Town Office. Registration forms will be accepted through April 20th.


The Household Hazardous Waste Facility at 424 River Road in Lewiston will be open on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays from May – November for collections. It will be open from 8 AM – noon. A flyer is available at the Town Office listing what items are accepted and what items are not accepted. There are some very specific guidelines, so it would be worth your time to stop in and get a flyer!


Roads will be posted from March 10 – May 16. No loads weighing 23,000 pounds or more will be able to travel on posted roads between those dates.


The Road Commissioner is working hard to make our roads passable – please be patient as many town roads have needs!


Transfer Station permit stickers should be displayed on your vehicle as of March 1! You do NOT need a new sticker; simply make sure the one you have is visible to the Transfer Station attendants.  Thank you!!




Burn permits are now available on line! The website address is www.maineburnpermit.com  There is, however, a $7 fee for obtaining your permit on line. You can still contact our local men and receive a permit at no cost.


Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
