Large contractor bags (over 35 gallons) and barrels cost $2.25 and use a PINK sticker or punch card.

From the Town Clerk:
It’s that time of year again! Starting on October 15 your dog(s) need to be licensed for the ensuing year, by January 31. On February 1 fines will begin, and they will be $25 per dog. Please be sure to stop by to register soon! You can do this in the office, through the mail (please include a check, rabies information, if necessary, and a self-addressed stamped envelope), or online at: https://www10.informe.org/dog_license/ You will be able to pay by credit card 24 hours a day! The online service is only available through January 31. All fines and deadlines are set by the State of Maine and cannot be waived locally. If you no longer have your dog please contact the office so it can be removed from the listing.
