As the world- wide coronavirus outbreak continues to dominate our news each day, we know this may be a source of growing concern for you and your family.
We decided as of March 17, 2020 that the office will be closed to foot traffic. Our staff will continue to come to work to assist you via the phone and email. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. We are still here to assist you in any way we can. If you are not already receiving our emails please send me your email address and I will add you to our email list, firstname.lastname@example.org to get the most up to date information as it becomes available.
From this website you can locate links to process vehicle re-registrations and most of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife provisions. To reach this page select departments from above, under Town Office click on the blue box which says services available to find the various agency links. If you need any information to process your registrations online please contact us and we will try to assist you. We are also processing re-registrations via the mail, call the office and we will be happy to help you.
The new legislative measures that were adopted on March 17, 2020 extends registrations for motor vehicles, ATV's and boats for 30 days after the end of the public health emergency. (date to be determined) Meaning if your registration has or is expiring you can continue to use the vehicle legally, you have 30 days once the current emergency is lifted to get the vehicle registered. This covers any new vehicles purchased at a dealer displaying a temporary plate. If you have a new vehicle which was not purchased at a dealer that needs to be registered please contact Marylou and together we can work something out to get your vehicle registered.
We are currently keeping in close contact with both our Health Officer and our Emergency Management Director and will monitor this situation closely.
In our download section below there are a few information posters regarding prevention and detection. At this time we should all follow the rules set forth in the poster “Stop the Spread of Germs”. It is as a simple reminder on what you can do on your part. We have also supplied the link to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.htmlwhere you can find current information regarding the coronavirus.
We will continue to send out any new information we get in regards to the virus here in Maine. As always the health and safety of our community members is a top priority for all of us.
Municipal Officers and Town Staff.
As we try to conduct business as normal as possible here with the office being closed to the public and practicing safe social distancing our Thursday night meeting will be hosted via Zoom until further notice. Click on the blue box below to locate the meeting information.
We are in the process of beginning to update our mailing and physical address. No we have not moved, we are still in the "Little Red School House" on what was formerly known as Allard Circle. Though our address has changed.
Last November we brought to the voters a referendum question regarding access to the municipal properties on what was previously known as Allard Circle. The road configuration has changed, it is no longer a circle. The referendum that was voted on authorized the town to widen a portion of road leading from So Hiram Rd aka Rte. 160 to the municipal properties and discontinuing a portion of the road known as Allard Circle. Funding was approved to come out of our Capital Improvement Reserve.
At our town meeting which was held on Saturday March 7, 2020 the town voted to accept the new access road. The new road way is called "Nasons Way". This will affect five properties that formerly had Allard Circle addresses, three of which are town owned parcels, the Town Office, So Hiram Fire Department & Sacopee Rescue Barn. At the same meeting the voters extended the Bobbin Mill Road to connect the other end of the roadway formerly known as Allard Circle to the So Hiram Rd aka Rte. 160.
The Hiram Town Office and the So Hiram Fire Departments physical and mailing addresses are changing. The Sacopee Rescue Department uses a PO Box for their mailing address so it will affect there physical address only.
New Addresses for Municipal Properties
Hiram Town Office - 16 Nasons Way - (formerly 25 Allard Circle)
So Hiram Fire Dept - 23 Nasons Way - (formerly 18 Allard Circle)
