Board of Assessors

Minutes - December 13, 2017


The meeting came to order at 10:00 AM at the Lamoine Town Hall.

Present were Assessors Jane Fowler and Terry Towne.

Minutes, November 1, 2017 – Terry moved to approve the minutes.  Jane Concurred.

Tree Growth Plans – Terry agreed to contact Maine Municipal Association in regard to reviewing tree growth forest management plans prior to April 1, 2018.  Of interest are:

1.    What is the Board’s recourse if a parcel owner fails to comply with the Board’s request?

2.    If a parcel owner fails to resubmit an application by April 1, 2018, should that parcel be removed from tree growth status?

3.    What procedures should the Board follow?

The Board reviewed items in the “in box”.

The Board agreed to send out a second notice requesting forest management plans to those tree growth parcel owners who have not yet submitted the requested plans.  If a management plan is not submitted by January 2018, the parcel owner will be asked to submit a tree growth application.

The next regular meeting of the Board of Assessors is scheduled for January 3, 2018 at 8:00 AM.

Respectfully submitted,

_____  Jane Fowler, Chair

_____  Terry Towne
