Notice is hereby given that the Municipal Officers of the Town of Fryeburg will hold a public hearing on December 15,2016 at 6:00 pm at The American Legion Hall, on Bradley Street in said Fryeburg to hear public comment on the following:
To see if the Town will vote to determine that the number of Selectmen shall, effective as of the annual town meeting in June of 2017, be five (5), of whom, in June of 2017 two (including the then current vacancy) shall be elected for an initial three-year term, and one shall be elected for an initial two- year term; at the end of each such initial term, each such position to be filled for a three- year term.
Some residents may have recently received a letter from the assessor regarding a pending inspection of your property. Some residents received similar letters (and had subsequent inspections) last year, while others will get this letter next year. This inspection is being completed to be in compliance with Maine statutes (M.R.S.A. Title 36 §328), which requires that properties be inspected and inventoried at least once every 4 years. It has been 10 years since most properties have been inspected. The inspection will generally consist of checking on the condition of the buildings and looking for structures that have been added or removed from the property since the last inspection. This will aid to ensure that our tax records and your resulting assessments are accurate.
Fryeburg citizens may get water from the Town Office if their well has run dry. There is an outdoor spigot on the front of the building. People may come inside for tap water during Town Office hours.
Maine Emergency Management has put together a page with drought resources here: http://www.maine.gov/mema/prepare/prep_display.shtml?701117
This page has links to resources for low income households, who, if eligible, could apply for aid for well drilling. Also, Oxford County was included in an economic disaster declaration for farms affected by the drought and there are links to that information as well.
The state is also requesting that we direct any folks who have dry wells to call 2-1-1 to report their well. This information will allow the state to see where drought problems are and how widespread it is. This will help them moving forward to determine any eligibility for assistance. The information already gathered from 2-1-1 shows callers from all regions of Oxford county except for some of the extreme northeastern towns (this is based on caller information only). Also seen in this data is that the overwhelming majority of wells that have gone dry are dug wells..
The state, as well as Oxford County EMA, will be working to push out information about water conservation via media and social media networks. You can find them at http://www.facebook.com/oxfordcountyema. The state drought task force has also begun to meet monthly you can read the minutes of the last meeting here: http://www.maine.gov/mema/newsroom/mema_news_display.shtml?id=718343
