Announcements:

All Montville residents are invited to attend the Select Board meeting on Monday, Feb. 8 to make suggestions for the town meeting warrant or the 2016 town budget.  Our annual Town Meeting will be held on Saturday, March 26 at 10:00 AM at the Town House. 

On Monday, February 15, President's Day, the Select Board will meet even though the town office will be closed.


Maine Presidential Caucuses. The Republican caucus will be held on Saturday, March 5 at 8:00 AM at Belfast High School.  The Democratic caucuses will be held on Sunday, March 6 at 2:00 at the Montville Town House. You must be registered as a Republican or Democrat to participate in either caucus. If you are currently either not registered to vote or registered but unenrolled ("independent"), you may register up until and on the day of the caucus. If you are currently enrolled in a political party other than the one you wish to caucus in, you must change your enrollment 15 days before the caucus, which is Friday, Feb. 19 for Republicans and Saturday, Feb. 20 for Democrats. Note that the town clerk works Monday-Wednesday, Feb. 15-17 and Saturday, Feb. 20 that week.
 
The Board would like to remind residents to not push snow across the road when you are plowing your driveways. The practice makes plowing difficult for the town’s snow removal contractors. State statute (29-A M.R.S.A. § 2396) prohibits any person from placing in the public way snow or slush that has not accumulated there naturally. Thank you.
 
Residents who would like town-owned winter sand for their driveways will find it in a new location: a small shed across from the transfer station. Sand should no longer be taken from the sand shed.  Please limit yourselves to two 5-gallon buckets per household.

A reminder about trash bag prices:
 Kitchen-type bags, under 20 gallons, cost $0.75 and use a GREEN sticker or punch card. Conventional trash bags, from 20-35 gallons, cost $1.50 and use a YELLOW sticker or punch card. Large contractor bags (over 35 gallons) and barrels cost $2.25 and use a PINK sticker or punch card. Trash disposal can be paid for in three ways: 1) stickers for bags, 2) punch cards for bags or barrels, or 3) cash: paying transfer station attendants directly. Stickers and punch cards may be purchased either at the town office or at the transfer station.
PLEASE DO NOT TAKE BARRELS TO TRANSFER STATION THAT ARE EXCESSIVELY HEAVY AND REQUIRE MORE THAN ONE PERSON TO EMPTY.  Seasonal note: be sure your barrels are free of ice.  Thank you.
 
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.


From the fire department: Please remember to clean your chimney, have furnace inspected, and check the batteries in carbon & smoke detectors.

From the Town Clerk:
