posted Jun 26, 2020, 9:22 PM by Somerville Clerk   [ updated Jun 27, 2020, 5:57 AM by First Selectman ]

Hi Folks,

So we are quickly approaching our July 1st 2020 Town Hearing, which will be held at the Somerville School Gym starting at 5:30PM. We will have some in person attendance but it will be also available for Zoom. Please contact me at the Town Office prior to see about in person. We only have a few spots as many of us from the office need to be there. Attached you will find all kinds of helpful information, we have the Treasurers Statement, Sample Ballots, and the FY21 Budget/Referendum Questions with their information. 

We will be wearing masks and following physical distancing requirements. 

Reach out to me for Password

Also for those who have requested absentee ballots, those went out in Thursdays mail. I am very sorry for the delay. Inside are your State Ballots, RSU Ballots, and our Town Ballots. You can mail them back or drop them off at the Town Office, if we aren't there we have a locked Drop Box (It will have a sign) that has been approved by The Secretary of State's Office. You have until 8:00PM July 14th (Voting Day) to drop them off. If you do want to drop them off, again the drop box is there but you can also bring them to the school gym on voting day or Monday and Wednesday 9-6 at the office. 

Thank you all for being AMAZING!!! 

Best Regards,

Erica Tompkins
Town Clerk & Registrar of Voters

Hi Folks,

Voting is right around the corner and I wanted to reach out and let you all know that absentee ballots will be available very soon! The State's Office is delayed slightly so I will get those out ASAP! Absentee is super easy, you can request via the phone with me at the office 207-549-3828 or by going online at https://www.maine.gov/cgi-bin/online/AbsenteeBallot/index.pl

We will have in person voting however, we are moving the voting place to the Somerville Elementary School Gym! This way we can keep distance and we will have a one way in and one way out. We will be sanitizing between each use, so we ask for your patience as we do our absolute best to keep everyone safe. We are also asking that you wear a mask, we will have extra's, as we do not want to risk anyone's safety.

1st Week Down

posted Jun 7, 2020, 8:39 AM by Somerville Clerk   [ updated Jun 7, 2020, 8:39 AM ]

Hi Folks,

What a week! We have completed our first week back in office and while we learned a few things, it was a huge success!! 

A few things we would like address so that things will run even smoother in the future:

We have signs that we will have out so that it is clearer where to go. There will be an entrance sign that will also say to follow the yellow tape on the ground. We are using the first driveway (coming from RT105) as the starting point and the second driveway as our exit. The tape is in a horseshoe shape that takes you up to the front under the windows and follows around. At the windows area we have two signs saying STOP, stop there and we will be out. Doing this horseshoe will allow everyone to be able to drive in and exit with ease. 

We also wanted to say that we are setting appointments as we know there are so many folks that need to get things done. We ask that you stay to that appointment and if you're going to be more than 5 minutes early, that you give us a call so we don't have too long of a line. As the weather gets warmer and as many folks have things approaching (BMV, ATV & Boat Registrations etc) , we worry about the wait. This will allow us in the office our time to get things ready for the next appointment. We want to make sure things are staying as safe as possible for us all. 

Thank you for understanding and working with us during this crazy time. We look forward to seeing you soon!!


Best Regards

Re-Opening!!! June 1st 2020

posted May 30, 2020, 8:33 AM by Somerville Clerk   [ updated May 30, 2020, 8:34 AM ]

Hi Folks,

 

I just wanted to give you all an update, the office will be reopening June 1st to our usual hours, Monday and Wednesday 9am to 6pm. We will be doing curbside and the parking lot will be marked so everyone will know where to go. Kind of like the drive thru :)

At the moment we have a few appointments already set with a few of you so for the first week it might be best to call first. We in the office also have swing shifts, to limit contact, so it would be best to check in to make sure the person you need is in :) 

We are asking that all visitors wear a mask for service, we will be as well along with our gloves and all clipboards an pens will be sanitized between each use. 

 

We are so excited to get back to it, we hope to see you all very soon!! 

 

Best Regards & Stay Safe
