2018 Dog Licensing Has Now Began! Come in to Register Your Dog(s) by December 31st

Just a heads up…….
The 2018 Dog Licensing has started today! Please don’t forget to license your dog so you do not have to pay a late fee. If you have never licensed your dog please come in to do so, so you do not have Animal Control come see you. It is $6.00 for spayed/neutered (please being proof in if you are doing a new license) and $11.00 for non spayed/neutered. If you have any questions you can call me at the office during business hours at (207)628-4441 ext. 0 or by email at newportlandtownmanager@gmail.com

NOTICE OF POSTING CAMERAS AT WIRE BRIDGE

The Town Office would like to inform the public that with the recent unfortunate events at the Wire Bridge Area, we are in the process of installing cameras to try and prohibit people from vandalism and being disrespectful to this beautiful area.  There have been a number of sightings and evidence left on site from people abusing this area.  It is very unfortunate that we have to do this but we see no other alternative at this time.  Please if anyone happens to see any uncalled for activity in this area DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL 911  and report the actions to the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

 

Respectfully,

New Portland Town Officials
