The Way Life Is
Our town is working with the Southwestern Waldo County Broadband Coalition (SWCBC), a non-profit group formed by local citizens to help improve access to affordable, reliable, high speed internet in the communities of Freedom, Liberty, Montville and Palermo. As part of their work, they are sponsoring a survey that helps their organization (and our towns) better understand how well people in our towns are able to access the internet, and what is still needed to improve that situation. Here is a link to the SWCBC survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SWCBCsurvey
If you could please take this survey in the next week or two, that will really help us get better information about what you and others in our community need, want, and expect in terms of internet access. You can take the survey on behalf of your household, your business, or your non-profit or local government organization (or all of these!). If you don’t have access to the survey, you can also complete a paper copy of the survey at the town office.
Montville Representative on the Southwestern Waldo County Broadband Coalition
Happy Spring! Approximately a month ago, I sent out reminder notices for unpaid 2020 property taxes. The official 2020 tax lien notices will go in the mail on Tuesday, April 20, 2021. This will add approximately $9.95 in fees and certified mailing costs to each tax account. This allows 30 days to bring tax accounts current before the lien date of May 28, 2021. Any 2020 property tax accounts not paid in full by May 28, 2021, will have on lien placed with the Registry of Deeds. This will also add additional costs of approximately $50.00 for the cost of the lien, the lien discharge and processing fees to each account.
If you know you owe 2020 property taxes and did not receive a reminder notice, please call the office to make sure we have a correct address for your accounts.
As always, if you have any questions please call or email me firstname.lastname@example.org. I will glad to help you in any way I can.
Thank you and Best Regards, Terry

The Town is looking to hire someone to provide cleaning services for approximately 2 hours a week at the Town Office and 15 – 30 minutes every other week at the Transfer Station. Please email if you are interested in the position.
