Notices:

Closings:

We will be closed on Monday, January 17th, for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Transfer Station Manager Needed:

Our transfer station manager has retired and we are seeking someone to take his place. This is a part time position that requires weekend work. Our former manager left the operation running smoothly, with experienced personnel. Please contact the Town Office if interested.

Equipment Operator/Worker needed:

Wanted: Full time operator/worker (or option of snowplow operator/worker for this season). Excellent base wages, higher if you have more experience. Come join a hardworking close-knit team. One of our regulars is moving out of town, creating a great opportunity for someone to make some overtime this winter. Interested individuals can stop by the town office to apply, or get an application here.

Swap Shop:

The Swap Shop is now closed and no more donations will be accepted. Donations can be held till next season or given to other charities of your choice. Clothes donations can be given to the Litchfield Thrift shop and left at the Senior Citizen Center, when it is open.

Rt 197 Bridge, Single Lane Through the Winter:

The bridge was going to be renovated next year, but is now scheduled to be completely replaced in March (provided materials are available). Until then, traffic will remain single lane.

COVID Vaccine Mandate Negative Affects:

The DHHS COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health care workers that was published on August 12th will adversely affect many communities in Maine.  Due to the inclusion of EMS personnel, it affects Litchfield’s Fire Department and if not rescinded or modified, unvaccinated personnel will not be allowed to work in any capacity after October 1st.  Confronting this reality, our Fire Chief has published a letter summing up his concerns, and the Select Board has made a resolution in support of these concerns. These concerns have been sent to the Governor and you may read them yourself on our Resolutions and Correspondence page.

Restore Sea-run Alewife fish capability to Cobbossee Stream. Good, bad, neutral?

The Department of Marine Resources is desiring to restore sea-run Alewives access to Cobbossee Stream. This one page summary from the Cobbossee Watershed District provides some background on their perspective.  An alternate view is offered by non-profit Upstream Cobbossee in this short video. If you are interested in finding out more, call the Town Office (268-4721) and we’ll provide you a point of contact for either side of the issue.

Transfer Station Passes Available at the Transfer Station: 

All Litchfield residents/property owners are required to have a yellow Transfer Station sticker to use the transfer station.  This sticker replaces the old blue one and must be attached to the lower right (passenger side) windshield.  Stickers may be picked up free of charge at the Transfer Station for each of your registered vehicles (show your registration).
