Q. When are my property taxes due?
A. On September 15, 2016 the current bill was sent. This covers July 2016 - June 2017. You do have the opportunity to make two installment payments. The first installment was due October 15, 2016 and the second installment is due on May 4th, 2017. Even if you choose to make two installments, there will not be a reminder sent out in May so you should retain the second pay stub on the bottom of the bill as your reminder, and mark your calendar. If you have missed any payment due dates, please call the office at 207-589-4318 for the amount due at this time. Interest began accruing on the unpaid 1st installment on October 16, 2016.
We do accept partial tax payments and prepayments of any amount on all bills. Payments are always applied to the oldest outstanding tax bill first. We DO accept credit or debit cards at this time.

Q. How do I get a marriage license?
A. Marriage licenses may be obtained from the town in which one member of the couple resides. If you both are from out of state and wish to be married in Maine, then you may get a license from any municipality. Use the fillable pdf located below or click here to complete the Marriage Intentions Form and bring it in to the town office. Both members of the couple must be present to sign the form in front of the clerk, or you may sign in before a notary public. Be prepared to show ID. If you have been previously married, you must show the original stamped divorce decree from your most recent marriage. Please allow time for the clerks to prepare the marriage license as we are unable to do it during open office hours.
