If you are curious about why our Town Office door looks like we have boarded up the place and vacated the premises, have I a story for you. We had a very damaging Tuesday on the 16th. Our day started off with the tin frame that goes over the siding on the back side of the Fire House coming loose in that wicked wind we had.

Later that same day we had a customer go to leave and the instigating wind took the door right out from their hand and slammed it right into the light fixture on the outside of the building, shattering our door window all over the office and parking area.

Thank you, Devon Rogers, for boarding us up and Clayton Emery for the help with glass pickup. We will be replacing the door very soon.

The Regional School Unit 25 district budget meeting will be held May 30 at 7 p.m. at the Bucksport Middle School. All residents are welcomed to attend. If you are not already registered to vote, I will be located in front of the auditorium doors with the other Town Clerks checking in voters and getting new voters signed in. Please be sure to bring valid ID if you are a first time voter.
