Town Office

A group of hearty Searsmont volunteers has set up an ice skating area in the overflow parking lot at 45 Main Street South – next to the Community Building.  The rink opening is anticipated for February 3rd (subject to weather/temps).  Check our website @, where we will post when the rink is open.

A reminder:  Items such as trailers, vehicles, and trash cannot be in the road right of way.  It is also illegal to push snow across a roadway.

Sand Pile Issues:  Residents are allowed to fill two five-gallon buckets of sand per storm from the town, but it must be from the small sand shed.  Due to the instability of the large sand pile and the necessity of the contracted town plow drivers’ access to the large sand pile, residents are not permitted to remove sand from the large building.  If the residents’ pile is low, please notify the Town Office so we can call the contractor.  Nonresidents are not allowed to use this sand; and no one is allowed to take salt from the shed – this is for Searsmont Snow Plow Contractor use only.  The area is being monitored, and violators will be prosecuted.

There continue to be problems with residents putting things other than cardboard in the cardboard bin, which is causing problems for the facility that processes it.  Only corrugated cardboard goes in the cardboard bin.
