Town Report

​​

Town Reports will be mailed during the week of July 27.  This year's report was printed in March and contains reports and other information that anticipated a Town Meeting back in April.  Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, that did not take place.  Under emergency legislation, the Selectmen were given the authority to commit taxes this year based on the prior year's budget - which they will do.  The Selectmen will call a "traditional" Town Meeting once it is safe to do so, with a warrant that will ask voters to transfer funds between budgetary lines, without affecting the bottom line total.  Voters also will be asked to consider non-budgetary questions as well, including adoption of the Turner's draft Comprehensive Plan.  Ample notice will be provided once that meeting is scheduled.  Your patience is greatly appreciated during this unusual time. 

Draft Comprehensive Plan Approved by State

The draft Comprehensive Plan that was the subject of the December 19 Public Hearing was revised and submitted to the state for review.  On May 13, 2020, notification was received by the Bureau of Resource Information & Land Use Planning in the Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry, that the plan is consistent with Maine's Growth Management Act.  The plan now requires acceptance at the annual Town Meeting as the final step in the approval process.  Click here to view the final plan.

Rescue "Subscription" Program
