Monday, January 14, 2019, the regular Selectboard meeting will be preceded by a Public Hearing on modifying the TIF agreement so that the Town can use tax income it generates for town improvements like the new Fire Truck. The Hearing will be followed by a Special Town Meeting so residents can approve the changes. Please attend to support this important effort for our town, starting at 6pm.
Reminder: It’s time to register your dog. Please see the Town Clerk during the Town Hall business hours. You should register your dog before the end of the year; however, no penalty fees will be assessed until after January 31st.
Pass the word! We have a chance to get improved Internet service in poorly served areas of Edgecomb, but we need your help. Please take a few minutes to complete a survey, for businesses or residential (“community”) users, so we can add accurate data to our town’s portion of a seven-town regional grant application. The town qualifies as “rural,” a sector currently favored for grants; small, often home-based businesses are a focus, as are residents who lack adequate connection for students or elders who may need health or other services. The surveys are available via online questionnaires (click here for businesses or residential) or in downloadable printable form (Broadband Business Survey or Broadband Community Survey). We’ll also have print copies at the Town Hall. Surveys should be returned before the end of the year, so perhaps do it now, before your holiday plans intrude? Drop them with Ted Hugger at Cod Cove Inn. Thanks!
