NOTICE OF A TOWN COUNCIL MEETING TO AUTHORIZE BORROWING AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $1,200,000
TO FINANCE ROAD WIDENING AT WEST BROADWAY AND RELATED IMPROVEMENTS
The Town Council of the Town of Lincoln will hold a Meeting on August 10, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. at the Municipal Office, located at 63 Main Street in Lincoln to, among other matters, authorize the issuance of bonds of the Town in a principal amount not to exceed $1,200,000 for the purpose of road widening at West Broadway and related improvements as approved by the voters in a referendum election held on November 4, 2014. The public is invited to attend. Written comments received before the meeting will be considered.
30-Day Notice of Lien
The 2015 tax year ended June 30th, and now we are in our 2016 tax year, which is July 1st 2015 through June 30th 2016. Going forward, usually the new tax bills go out in September, and the first installment is due in November.
Right now, however, is the time to clear up old taxes before they go to lien. 30-Day Notices of Lien will be sent out August 1st for unpaid 2015 real estate taxes. This process gives a 30 day window of time to pay the tax amount due with interest frozen as of August 1st, along with certified mail and demand fees. After the 30 days expires, interest accrues again, and liens will be filed within ten days. Liens costs are added to the unpaid 2015 tax accounts at that point, and automatic foreclosure happens in 18 months. This process can be avoided, however, if the 2015 taxes are paid by July 31st 2015. The tax collector can be contacted at the Town Office by phone at 207-794-3372, or by email at email@example.com

Starting July 1, 2015 the Lincoln Transfer Station will be closed Wednesdays, Thursdays and all legal Holidays. Mandatory recycling will also start July 1, 2015. An updated booklet for the transfer station is available at the Town office, Transfer Station or by clicking here.
