COUNCIL RULES-2020-2021

Public Statement Public Statement, Expression of Opinion And Resolve of the Lincoln, Maine Town Council

 

 

2020-2021 Lincoln Town Council L-R Jared McCarthy, Vice Chair Stephen Clay, Marscella Ireland, Chair George Edwards, John Trask.  Absent from photo Cathy Moison and Jeff Gifford. 

 

The Town of Lincoln has a Council-Manager form of government and acts as the general legislative body of the municipality by representing all Lincoln residents. The Councilors’ duties and responsibilities are governed by the Town Charter.

The Town Council is a seven (7) member board consisting of a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, and five regular members. Members of the Town Council are elected each November and serve for three (3) years. Terms are staggered so that no more than three (3) Councilors will be elected at one election.

The Town Clerk serves as Clerk of the Council preparing and maintaining the Council’s record. Agenda Items for any Town Council agenda are due to the Town Clerk two weeks prior to the meeting. Should a member of the public wish to have materials printed, they must submit a Freedom of Access request to the Town Clerk for release.

Regular Town Council meetings are held the second Monday of each month at 7:00 pm, unless a federal holiday. Special meetings may be held at other times with proper notice.

The Lincoln Town Council continues its policy whereby people who come to speak at Town Council Meetings (whether in person or via Zoom) must pass a test of standing, i.e., being either a Lincoln resident or a Lincoln taxpayer. During Town Council meetings residents/taxpayers are encouraged to speak during the public forum portion, but for the time being we will only be able to admit one person at a time to the council chambers due to Covid spacing issues. Folks wishing to speak will be asked to wait outside until their turn.  Zoom is also available for residents/taxpayers who wish to participate in the public forum portion of our meetings. The Council can, on limited occasions, agree to hear from a person who does not fully meet this test of standing; when allowing this will advance Council efforts.
