Historical Notes:  This year’s notes are from the daily journal of Eben King who lived in Lamoine for his entire life.  His great-nephew, Arthur Reynolds, transcribed the entries. All the entries are from open town meeting day, April 2nd, and reflect everyday life in Lamoine in the 2nd half of the 19th century.

James K. Tweedie

March 17, 1920 – February 19, 2007

 

Jim Tweedie had Lamoine in his blood, even though he was born in Massachusetts.  His mother’s family, (the Coggins and the Hodgkins) was among the first to settle in Lamoine, and his many aunts and uncles were a big influence on his early life when he spent his summers here.  A World War II Veteran, Jim spent 25 years with the telephone company then eventually retired to Lamoine in the early 1970’s. He and his wife Villa built a home on Meadow Point, spending summers there and traveling the world during the winters.  An active member and chair of the town’s Planning Board, Jim was instrumental in many of the early land use ordinances of Lamoine.  He was also a life-time honorary trustee of Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, helping to lead a capital campaign in the 1980’s. His daughter Catherine now lives at the family home, and his niece Carol Tweedie Korty is a member of Lamoine’s Conservation Commission. Jim’s sister, Agnes Beckwith, had the 2001 town report dedicated in her memory.

 

 

Gerald R. Ford

November 21, 1937 to January 21, 2007

 

Gerald Ford served as Lamoine’s Harbor Master from July of 2005 until his death, and before that was a deputy to the Harbor Master.  He was passionate about his post and making sure the harbor rules were followed and the records kept as accurately as possible.  Gerry never missed a town meeting and was a frequent attendee of the various board meetings at the town hall.  A former Selectman in Levant, Gerry retired to Lamoine after a long career in the auto parts business.  He was a Merchant Marine and a member of the Air National Guard.  His family was also one of the original settlers of Lamoine, and an ancestor was a veteran of the Revolutionary War and is buried on family land off Seal Point Road.  His home was on land that has been in the Ford family since the birth of our nation.  Gerry’s brother Dennis is currently the town’s Code Enforcement Officer and Road Commissioner.

Message from State Representative Robert Eaton

 

 

REPORT TO THE CITIZENS OF LAMOINE

Dear Neighbors:

 

It is an honor to represent you as your State Representative in the Maine House.  The second session of the123rd Legislature is just getting underway and will be busy and challenging with some important issues on the agenda, especially for our coastal communities.

 

We are all aware that we must find efficiencies and savings in our state functions but the school consolidation legislation has created a savings for the state at the expense of our towns.  I will continue my support for repeal until our rural and coastal communities are provided with fair and reasonable alternatives to find the necessary efficiencies.

 

Our state is facing revenue shortfalls forcing the legislature to consider major cuts in many programs. All too often, these cuts hurt those who are most in need.   I am convinced that a sensible tax reform plan like the one we passed in the House last session would have reduced the shortfall by stabilizing state revenue.  At the same time it would have reduced Maine’s income tax rate from 7th highest in the nation to 34th.  Over 90% of the taxpayers in Maine would benefit from this plan.  I remain hopeful that we will have another opportunity to vote for tax reform and tax relief this session.

 

I am proud to serve on the Marine Resources Committee.  The hard working men and women who make their living on our waters and our shores contribute significantly to our economy.   Last session we were able to protect our lobster industry from the threat of bycatch.  This session many bills and presentations concern shorefront, inter tidal zones, gear and fishing conflict as well as fish restoration.

 

You can learn more about what I and other legislators have been doing by visiting the House Majority Office Web site:  www.housedemocrats.maine.gov.  From there you can visit my Web page by clicking on “Representatives.” 

 

My job in Augusta is to represent you, so I hope you will contact me to share your concerns. If you need assistance with a state government issue I can be reached at the State House at 287-1400 or toll free 1-800-423-2900. You may also reach me at home on weekends at 422-3918 or by e-mail at RepRob.Eaton@legislature.maine.gov.

 

Sincerely,

Rob Eaton

State Representative

Selectmen’s Report for 2007

 

 

We thank-you for allowing us to operate your community during 2007. This past year and the years that follow are likely to be among the most challenging for elected municipal officials.  Mandated school consolidation, a severe state budget crunch, and a general economic slowdown will be felt at all levels of government, especially at the local level.  Whether it’s state aid for education and roads, municipal revenue sharing, or excise tax collections, revenues to help offset the property tax are likely to lag behind previous levels while expenses, are unlikely to decline.

 

We’re pleased to report the Town of Lamoine is on stable footing and the municipal side of the government is running well.  Our paid staff remains virtually unchanged from 2006.  Administrative Assistant Stu Marckoon has completed his 15th year on the job, Town Clerk/Tax Collector Jennifer Kovacs is back for her 4th year after becoming a Mom in January.  Assistant Clerk/Tax Collector Kathy DeFusco begins her 5th year in the office.  Code Enforcement Officer Dennis Ford and Deputy CEO Michael Jordan have teamed up to meet the town’s permitting and inspection needs. Allen Sternfield will complete his 15th year on the job at the transfer station in the summer of 2008.

 

We have faced some immediate infrastructure needs.  When it became clear that no contractor was willing to remove snow from the town roads without a storage facility for salt and sand, the town agreed to fund construction of a brand new salt/sand shed.  The facility opened on time in November 2007 and came in slightly under budget.  A little bit of site work remains to be done after the snow is gone in the spring, but we’re proud of how contractor Jay Fowler and his various sub-contractors built a functional and attractive building next to the transfer station.  The Town Hall roof was replaced this past fall by contractor Michael Jordan.  He encountered some challenges from the snowiest December weather we’ve had in a while. 

 

Our roads got some much needed attention – some of it on an emergency basis after a pair of severe storms early in the year.  Thanks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, washed out areas of several local roads were repaired so that they will once again drain properly.  We hope to keep up with the road maintenance needs in the coming years – needs that are a constantly growing expense. 

 

Another area we’ve spent countless hours studying is the security at the Town Hall, and the town meeting will be asked for funds to do some internal renovations to keep our staff and operation safer and more efficient.  Those renovations will include new flooring to replace the rapidly decaying softwood floors, a new counter setup for the tax collector’s office, moving the Code Enforcement Office to the rear of the building, and installing a new telephone system. 

 

Another area we looked at this year was the annual audit.  James Wadman, CPA, met with us and the Budget Committee to explain how the audit report is laid out, how well our finances are doing, and what, if any changes ought to be instituted to better report and protect our funds.  We’re quite satisfied that the reporting of our funds is accurate, and that short of hiring more staff to segregate the various cash handling functions, the funds are well protected.

I am please to provide you with a summary of the events our Sheriff’s Department was involved with in your town in 2007.  Although most incidents were as a result of citizens from your town calling for assistance or to report a crime, some, such as the service of subpoenas, and protection orders were initiated by our office.  Also remember this summary only reports those incidents we were involved in and does not include any activity by the Maine State Police.

*Hancock Provided Mutual aid to Lamoine

The Lamoine Fire Department responded to 43% more calls in 2007 than in 2006, marking one of the busiest years in the history of the department.  As you can see from the table at the left, many of these calls involved removing hazards from the roads and flooding during 3 severe storms.  There were also a lot of traffic accidents we responded to during 2007, some involving personal injury and extrication requests. I’m proud to report the members of the department responded well to all calls for help. 

            Our rescue boat and crew saved three more lives this year, pulling a family from Frenchman Bay after their sailboat capsized off Lamoine State Park.  The department received an award from Maine Coast Memorial Hospital as one of the outstanding emergency calls of the year.   We also enjoyed growth in our membership numbers in 2007, and three of our members, Jon Harris, Jennifer Reynolds and Angie Butler, have become certified as Firefighter II.  The department members continually train and a variety of activities, as we never know what will await us at the scene of a 9-1-1 call.

            We also enjoyed a prosperous year of fundraising to purchase equipment for the department.  An annual letter writing campaign, a concert at Lamoine State Park by the Flash In the Pans Steel Drum Band, our annual auction, and our annual clam chowder supper raised thousands of dollars, and the department voted to use its funds to upgrade its extrication tools to be more effective on car wrecks. The new equipment arrived in early 2008. We’re also hoping to secure grant funding to upgrade the department’s air-packs to a lighter weight, longer lasting unit.  We applied for a FEMA grant last year, but did not get approval.

            I’m extremely grateful to the Budget Committee for recommending that the personnel of your fire department receive a greater expense reimbursement in recognition of the higher cost of fuel to travel to training and calls.  The membership of the fire department volunteers hundreds of hours each annually, often at great personal expense to be ready to respond to those who need emergency help. 

            Many thanks, too, to our mutual aid departments who respond to our town, as we do to theirs.  The mutual aid system ensures that when you have an emergency, plenty of help will be available.  We hope you won’t need us to respond, but be assured if you do, we’re ready.

Planning Board Report

Text Box: Heavy equipment constructs the new road into a subdivision at Seal PointThough the housing market slowed significantly, developers did not slow their demand to turn large lots of land into subdivisions in Lamoine during 2007.  The Planning Board approved three residential subdivisions during the year, and a fourth was ready for a hearing at the end of the year.  An 8-lot subdivision by Wayne Wright received approval, but was subsequently ordered to halt development when the Army Corps of Engineers discovered vernal pools on the land.  Another residential subdivision, the first to require installation of a 10,000 gallon tank and fire hydrant, was approved for the end of Seal Point Road, and the first building permit was issued for the project.  A subdivision off Walker Road also received approval, though construction on the road had barely begun by year’s end.

 

A pair of major projects received approval from the Planning Board in 2007.  Bangor Hydro Electric’s new transmission line that will pass through North Lamoine received commercial and site plan review permits.  Work began on that project in December.  And the Town’s permit for a salt/sand shed received site plan and municipal building approval, and was constructed in October.

 

Three businesses received approval for projects.  Richard J. King, Inc. received approval for an addition, Barbara Brooks received a commercial building permit for a hay barn at the Seal Cove Goat Farm, and Richard McMullen received approval for a building to house his landscaping business.  Christine & Shaun Donovan were issued a home occupation permit.

 

The Board worked with Selectmen to approve a consent agreement with a subdivision developer off Shore Road over a discrepancy on shore frontage.   Several gravel pits were granted temporary renewals until such time as the snow melts and the Board can conduct site visits. A turnaround/parking area for the Small Woodlot Owners Association of Maine was approved on Seal Point Road. 

 

The Board was extremely pleased that voters approved the changes to the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance at the 2007 annual town meeting.  The Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection has imposed further conditions on that ordinance, and incorporating those conditions into the ordinance will be proposed at the 2008 town meeting.  The Board is working on making a common form for subdivisions and site plan review applications.  We also have received coastal bluffs maps from the state which will greatly aid in some Shoreland permitting issues.

 

The Board meets monthly, generally on the 1st Tuesday of each month (except on Election Days). 

 

Stuart Branch, Chairman


Board of Appeals Report

 

The Board of Appeals did not meet during 2007 as no appeal applications were filed.  During the year, Chris Tadema-Wielandt resigned from the board upon being elected to the Board of Selectmen. Jim Crotteau was appointed as a full member to fill the vacancy.  Merle Bragdon was appointed as an alternate to fill a vacancy created in 2006. 

 

 

Report from Cable TV Committee

 

The Lamoine Cable TV channel enjoyed a very successful year in 2007, airing at least 50 locally produced programs on cable channel 7.  Most of the shows aired were Selectmen, Planning Board and other meetings held at the town hall.  Field equipment purchased in the past couple years also allowed for recording of meetings at the Lamoine School with higher quality audio. The CTV crew also recorded sporting events and some musical performances at the school. A microphone processor installed at the town hall has greatly improved the sound at meetings in the town office.

 

The CTV committee is always looking for volunteers to help run the equipment during meetings.  From an educational stand point, it’s an easy way for High School, and College students to learn about media, and camera operation to prepare them for a career in any media field, from film making to news reporting, it’s a skill set that will always come in handy. Plus, it’s a great opportunity for students to add to their community service requirements. For adults it’s easy to learn and a fun way to keep abreast of developments in local government.  The CTV committee met relatively infrequently during 2007 as there were few policy issues to address.  Many thanks to those who volunteer their time at the controls, especially to Merle Bragdon who produced numerous meetings, & Stu Marckoon for his constant commitment to the channel. Committee members include Henry Ashmore, Patty Heath, Nicholas Pappas, Stu Marckoon and Merle Bragdon.  The committee is a semi-official group of interested folks to help run the channel, new membership is always welcome.

A few inquiries prompted actions by the Code Enforcement Officer this year. 

 

@    Worked with the Department of Environmental Protection to resolve a Shoreland Zoning Complaint in the Eagle Point subdivision.  The property owner has replanted trees to the satisfaction of the DEP.

@    Received a complaint about operations at the Seal Cove Goat Farm on Milky Way  The Planning Board and Department of Agriculture met with all parties and determined that the operator of the farm was in compliance with best management practices, though an abutting property owner may have been caused some impact by farm run-off.  That was determined to be a civil matter between the parties, not requiring town involvement.

@    Received an inquiry about why a portion of the tidal flats on the Skillings River was showing high pollution levels.  An investigation found several unpermitted recreational vehicles in the Shoreland Zone.  A notice of violation was issued, the property owner removed some of the RV’s and obtained permits for another and is now in compliance. The pollution has reportedly since abated.

@    Received a complaint about a party living in a structure on Mud Creek Road which did not have a building permit.  A notice of violation was issued, the structure was removed and the property owner advised to seek permits if a building is desired.

@    Received an inquiry into the parking of vehicles at Bradford’s Auto on Jordan River Road. The matter was referred to the Selectmen for enforcement of a 1995 commercial building permit condition by the Planning Board.  At year’s end, Selectmen and Bradford were in the process of negotiating a consent agreement.

 

Michael Jordan took over the duties as Deputy Plumbing Inspector and Deputy Code Enforcement Officer in 2007.  He’s received his CEO certification and expects to receive LPI certification in early January.

Lamoine Parks Commission Report

 

2007 was a productive year for the Parks Commission.

We co hosted the 2nd annual Flat Top 5K road race in honor of Bill Pinkham. It was a big success. Thanks again to the Pinkham family for donating a portion of the race proceeds to the Parks Fund. We encourage everyone to join us for the 3rd annual on March, 29. This year, a kid’s one mile race has been added.

Text Box: Volunteer Chris Weaver assists putting the Lamoine Beach Park sign back up after re-paintingLamoine Beach had a make over. Everything at the Park received a new paint job with matching colors. New handicap access paths were also installed. The handicap parking stalls and signs will be installed this spring. We will be continuing our effort in keeping Lamoine Beach a clean and enjoyable Park.

The sign project is nearing completion. We are planning to have the kiosks for Lamoine Beach and Blooomfield Park installed by mid summer.

Bloomfield Park also received a little paint and new picnic tables. We started cleaning up the surrounding woods and plan more of that this spring and summer. Our hopes are to reestablish an old path along the shore and add one or two picnic areas in the woods along the path. Our efforts here we believe are starting to pay off not only in cleanliness, but in creating a positive presence as well. Most of our work here this past year has been dealing with providing suitable road access to the Park. After a couple meetings with the Branch family and the selectmen, a joint plan to re grade the existing entrance and create a new portion of road which will bypass the Branch’s home has been proposed for approval at Town Meeting. A small parking area will be created as well. As most of the new roads will be on the Branch’s property, they have agreed to grant easements for the road, a future walking path, and use of the shore frontage. This project will fix the pot hole and steep entrance problem as well as deal with the long term issue of the Park’s impact on the property in which the Branches currently reside. As the vision of this area continues to develop, we feel this project will prove to be a worthy one.

At Marlboro Beach, nature is still at work!

Also, we welcomed some new members in 2007 and would like to thank our past members for their positive contributions and ideas.

In closing, we continue to believe we are fortunate as a community to possess these three areas to enjoy and will continue our focus and commitment to continually look at ways to maintain them in a manner to protect and preserve them, as well as make them more enjoyable and safe to use by the residents of Lamoine. We meet the third Tuesday of the month and welcome suggestions and ideas regarding these areas. We thank you for your support in 2007

Road Commissioner’s Report

The roads in Lamoine took a beating but also received a lot of work in 2007.  Severe storms on Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Patriot’s Day caused several washouts and flooding, and brought numerous trees down.  Thanks to our fire department volunteers, the immediate issues were cleared quickly and efficiently.

 

Text Box: A snowplow works one of the many storms in December 2007The longer term problems will take a while to address.  Much of the work that needs to be done involves the shoulders and ditches on the roads, and that work was started in 2007.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency helped with grants to repair those areas worst hit by the storm.  That included Cos Cob Avenue which saw the lower end of the road become impassable from one of the severe storms.  That was rebuilt and repaved along with areas of Buttermilk Road, Needles Eye Road and Birchlawn Drive.  Shoulder and ditching work were completed on Needles Eye and Asa’s Lane this year, which will provide much improved drainage.  Marlboro Beach Road, Maxwell Avenue and Lorimer Road were repaved in the summer of 2007.

 

The town took a giant leap forward in the way it handles the snow removal contract.  After putting the 3-year contract out to bid with options of contractors providing their own storage of salt and sand or having the town provide a facility, only one bid came in, and that was with the town providing the storage.  Nankervis Trucking, which has plowed the roads for many years was the sole bidder, and that prompted the town to construct a salt/sand shed facility.  Engineer Jim Kiser was hired to design the shed. Jay Fowler and several subcontractors built the facility next to the Transfer Station.  The finish was timely – December 2007 was one of the snowiest months in recent memory in Maine, and the contractor utilized the shed successfully to load the plow trucks.

 

Road work is an expensive proposition and getting more so given the increases in energy costs.  I have proposed to the budget committee that ditch and shoulder work get underway in earnest in 2008 and continue for several years to come.  Additionally, I have proposed that a fund be set up to anticipate a rebuilding and widening of Buttermilk Road as that becomes more heavily traveled due to many major development projects and traffic reconfiguration in Ellsworth.

Solid Waste Report

 

If it’s true that you can tell a lot about a society by what it throws away, then the numbers from 2007 tell a bit of a story.  Either Lamoine continued to grow and recycle more materials, or consumption stagnated a bit.  The proof is from how much was taken to the PERC trash to energy plant from Lamoine.  A half ton less went in 2007 compared to 2006.  The town paid for 609.2 tons of trash to be transported and burned.

 

Our recycling activity for 2007 is still being compiled, but it appeared to remain fairly constant compared to 2006 numbers.  The swap shop processed virtually the same amount of activity (13.3 tons of usable materials swapped).  The 2006 report from the State Planning Office gives some interesting insight.  Lamoine’s recycling rate for ’06 was 35%, the same as for 2005.  We recycled 169-tons of material, most of it cardboard and newspaper.  The average person threw out just over a half-ton of trash total, 0.39 tons went to PERC, 0.125 tons were recycled.

 

Operations at the transfer station were virtually unchanged during 2007.  We did replace one of the support beams in the dumpster building that had cracked either from a user backing into it, or from the trash truck/dumpster removal process.  Richard McMullen spruced up the station, removing brush around the fence area and giving the entire facility a good mowing last summer.   We also installed new directional signs to make sure traffic is moving in the proper direction around the facility.

 

We continue our successful partnership with Ellsworth for the disposal of bulky wastes.  A few accounts, however, remain delinquent, and certified letters will go out in 2008 to those accounts.  Lamoine also partnered with the MDI League of Towns to hold a household hazardous waste cleanup in the late summer, and numerous residents brought materials to that which could not be disposed of in the regular trash.  Coastal Recycling in Hancock continues to accept our Universal Waste (computer monitors, fluorescent light tubes, etc.) for a reasonable disposal fee. 

 

Incidents of illegal dumping along the roadsides and on the woods roads seem to have abated during 2007, as only a handful of complaints came in during the year.  We also thank Georgia Munsell who ran another successful roadside litter cleanup, coordinating many volunteers to pick up the trash in the spring. 

 

Allen Sternfield will complete his 15th year of running our transfer station in 2008.  Allen has been a dedicated employee, never missing his shift and always keeping us informed of issues surrounding the facility.  When Allen had to be away, Chuck Weber has ably filled in at the transfer station.

Conservation Commission Report

 

            The Lamoine Conservation Commission meets the second Wednesday of each month at the Town Hall and provides education about, and a forum for, the conservation concerns of Lamoine citizens. The Commission has no regulatory authority or budget, but works through education, research and advocacy to promote conservation in Lamoine.  The Commission sets aside part of every meeting to hear the concerns of those attending.

            In May of 2007 the Conservation Commission completed its fifth year and celebrated modestly by producing a summary of its accomplishments, available at the Town Hall.

            The Commission tries to have educational speakers several times a year.  This year we hosted Jim Wilfong of H2O for ME on drinking water, Representative Rob Eaton, who sparked a spirited discussion of Balancing the Interests in the Intertidal Zone, and Steve Perrin who described his unique conservation vision and considerable experience around Taunton and Frenchman Bays.

The GET WET! water testing program continues in the Lamoine Consolidated School in 2007-2008, and is also being tried out elsewhere in Maine.  The fourth annual roadside clean-up took place in May and many participated.  Georgia Munsell once again did a fine job with the overall organizing.  Georgia has continued her wonderful efforts on behalf of keeping Lamoine beautiful by proposing that Lamoine become an Adopt a Highway town.  The Conservation Commission enthusiastically recommended to the Board of Selectmen that they approve.  Georgia has already lined up 26 families and businesses committed to adopting a stretch of roadside to keep clean. The 2008 clean-up is scheduled for May 17th.  Please join us!

            The Friends of Lamoine Conservation (FOLC) is now completely independent from the Commission, and is chaired by Lynda Tadema-Wielandt.  The group works with Frenchman Bay Conservancy on specific land preservation projects in Lamoine.

            The Conservation Commission made its first presentation of the Lamoine Conservation Award at the Town Meeting in March, 2007 to Doug and Bev Coleman of Marlboro for their work in conserving working woodlands and creating public access trails in Lamoine.  Also at Town Meeting in 2007, the Town voted to set up a Land Conservation Reserve Fund to hold appropriations for conservation purchases in the future.

            The Conservation Commission, and particularly its Recycling Subcommittee, suffered losses in the retirement of Tom Spruce as a full member and Donna Thorburn as an alternate. Both were stalwarts of the Recycling Subcommittee, and the Commission needs volunteers to step up and continue their work. Bob Pulver has moved from alternate to full member and Annie Crisafulli has become an alternate. Conservation within the intertidal zone, preservation of the starlit sky, education on carbon emissions, an inventory or survey of important conservation resources in the Town and making existing planning data more accessible to decision-makers are other projects that await only sufficient volunteer energy.  Current Conservation Commission members are Fred Stocking, Chair, Lynda Tadema-Wielandt, Secretary, Bob Pulver, Carol Korty and Donna Theall, with Annie Crisafulli, alternate.  All are welcome to attend and participate.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

Veterans’ Memorial Committee Report

Members – Josephine Cooper (Chair), Kathleen DeFusco (Secretary), Marion McFarland, Walton McFarland, Reginald McDevitt, Jay Fowler, George Smith, Kenneth Fredette

 

The Board of Selectmen, acting upon the recommendation of the Long Range Planning Committee that Lamoine should have a Veterans' memorial, appointed a committee to look into the idea.

 

During 2007, the Committee met on a monthly basis. Initial meetings were devoted to design planning and location.  The Committee reviewed other monuments and designs in other towns. The selected design was originally submitted by Reg McDevitt and modified by the committee and the monument company, Fred Wieninger Monuments of Milbridge. This company has constructed a number of veterans’ memorials around the area. The Committee selected this company because of the high quality of their work.

 

The monument will be constructed of gray and pink granite and will feature the service emblems of all branches of the military and the Merchant Marine.  The stone was ordered in the fall of 2007. The memorial will include two benches. The Cole Foundation is donating another bench that will be placed by the existing flag pole at the Town Hall. The design includes a brick paved walkway and area around the monument, flags and landscaping. The memorial will be placed on the north side of the Town Hall, which will allow for visibility, security and a place where visitors can sit and reflect.

 

The Committee then turned its attention to fundraising efforts.  Total cost of the memorial is estimated to be around $25,000. The Town has appropriated $10,000 to date. Jay Fowler is donating the site preparation work and will improve the parking of the Town Hall. We have two grant requests we have submitted, and there are donation jars at the Town Hall, the Lamoine General Store and Ellsworth Giant Sub. Donors can purchase a paving brick and have it inscribed for a donation of $50.00. Names of Lamoine Veterans will be placed nearest to the monument. Forms to purchase a brick are available at the Town Hall or on the Town web site. The Lamoine School Patrons have supported the effort by holding a family movie night to honor heroes, which was greatly appreciated by the Committee. Each grade at the school will also raise funds for a brick for their grade to be included in the memorial. Other fundraising efforts are underway and we hope all the residents of Lamoine will contribute as they are able. This is an important community effort to honor those who have served our country. We will have a lasting tribute to veterans.

 

We hope to dedicate the monument on Memorial Day, 2008, with a special celebration.

 

Respectfully submitted,

Jo Cooper, Chair

 


 

Administrative Assistant’s Report

 

The Town of Lamoine, I suspect, is like a lot of the small communities in Maine.  We have a diverse and talented population and when someone is needed to step forward, you do.  Whether it’s a volunteer firefighter getting out of a sound sleep at 2AM for a chimney fire, the parks commissioners manning the Flattop 5K Road Race, a Selectman making sure the computer hardware’s running smoothly, another Selectman putting up the flags for the summer, it’s gratifying that so many people are willing to help if asked. 

 

Our little town continues to be an attractive place.  Every time the Code Enforcement Officer issues a new building permit for a residence, I get a feeling of gratitude that someone has chosen to live in Lamoine.  During 2007, the town permitted 3 more residential construction projects than in 2006.  Given the reported demise of the housing market, that’s a real vote of confidence in the town.

 

Lamoine has accomplished a lot in the past year.  Construction of the salt/sand shed leads those accomplishments. The Board of Selectmen are to be commended for dealing swiftly with the need to do this.  Plans are being laid to reconfigure the town office to offer greater security for the town’s employees and its assets.  Again, the Selectmen are to be commended for recognizing there was a problem and proceeding systematically in an effort to resolve it.   By year’s end, a designer was working on a plan that we hope will offer that security, allow the office to more efficiently deal with a growing number of transactions, and take care of some growing pains and technology needs in the building.  The town hall roof was replaced this year, and we’ve laid the groundwork to lease a plot of land at the old landfill for a cellular telephone transmission tower which will provide much improved wireless coverage for Lamoine, and a little income as well.

 

Some great challenges lie ahead of the town.  As the road system ages, the cost to properly repair that part of the infrastructure continues to soar.  School consolidation and the fiscal effect of whatever plan our town and other towns come up with looms.  Some interesting land use questions, and how much residential development the town can sustain environmentally will confront the Planning Board and Conservation Commission.  The effect of a larger (and aging) population requiring transactions such as vehicle registrations has an effect on staffing at the Town Office, space at the transfer station, and the number of runs for our fire department.

 

It’s been an interesting experience watching our town grow over the past 15-years.  I’m grateful for the folks who work regularly at the town office – Jennifer Kovacs, Kathy DeFusco, Dennis Ford and Jane Fowler are knowledgeable, reliable, efficient, and competent.  They’re also just plain good folks to be around.

 

My family & I thank-you for the opportunity to help shape our community.  We start a new chapter of our lives as our older daughter (Sarah) heads to college in 2008, and the younger one (Rebecca) progresses through high school.  Their small-town education in Lamoine has served them well, and it’s hard to believe that Rebecca who was born just 2-weeks before I started working in this position will soon take her drivers’ license test!
