IF YOU CALL 911… WILL WE FIND YOU QUICKLY WHEN SECONDS COUNT?
Unmarked or poorly marked addresses are causing response delays by Emergency Responders. Follow these tips to HELP US, HELP YOU when seconds count...
Homes and Businesses
- Address numbers should be large enough to be clearly seen from the road and set on a background of contrasting color. (Preferably illuminated or reflective at night).
- If your address numbers can’t be seen from the road, attach numbers to an additional sign of contrasting color and place close to your driveway entrance so they are easily seen by approaching rescue vehicles. Located them so they are not obstructed by snow in the winter or leaves in the summer.
- Mobile homes and apartments should also be identified with a number.
- If you live on a corner, make sure the house number faces the street named in your address.
- Reflective signs are the best and are available through the Waldoboro Fireman’s Association. (Click here for more information)
- Do not use your mailbox as the only means of identification for your home or business. Mailbox numbers can be confusing, especially if they are grouped together and there are multiple houses in close proximity.
- Put an additional address sign near your driveway to aid rescuers.
- Mark your mailbox on both sides. Make sure the numbers are in good repair and are of contrasting color that can be easily seen by approaching rescue vehicles.
- Keep clear of snow and ice in the winter.
Reflective Address Markers are available through the Waldoboro Fireman’s Association. Signs are double sided, measure 18” x 6” and have 3” white reflective numbers set on a blue reflective background. Cost is only $10.00 through June 17, 2017 for Waldoboro Residents. All others are $20.00.

The Town of Waldoboro, under the direction of the Board of Selectmen, is working on a special project to honor Waldoboro residents who dedicate their time volunteering for our community. On April 22, 2017, we will celebrate Waldoboro Volunteers Day. The event will be held at the Miller School gym from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Are you a Volunteer Organization leader? WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are trying to compile a individuals who volunteer their time in an effort to better their community that would like to attend this special day. We don’t want to leave anyone out. It doesn’t matter if they are a resident as long as they volunteer their time here in Waldoboro. If you could take some time out of your busy day to notify your volunteers of this event, it would be appreciated beyond words. We would also like you to provide an estimated number of hours your volunteers provide (just an estimate would be great).

In a special interview with Keizer, she said: "I am blessed and grateful to have been offered the opportunity to become your Town Manager. I'd like to thank the members of the Search Committee and the Select Board for their faith in me, and for making a person "from away" feel so very welcome. I grew up on Barnegat Bay in New Jersey, and every summer my family and I came to Maine, a tradition that I carried on once I had my own family. I have three children, all chose to attend college in Maine, two have graduated and fallen in love with Mainers, and the last one is a freshmen at USM. They have all chosen to stay and make their lives in the midcoast area, therefore I have decided to relocate to our place on Oyster Creek in Damariscotta.
"I have over 25 years of municipal experience, and I am eager to lend my talents to the community. I welcome the opportunities and challenges that leading Waldoboro will provide, I promise that we will seize the opportunities and conquer the challenges as a community. I do hope that once I arrive many of you will find some time to stop in for a visit so that I can get acquainted with all of you. I am eager to work as a team with the town employees and the many volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to the community. The good of the town will always be my guiding principle. I look forward to many years of service and becoming part of the Waldoboro family."
Keizer is due to start around May 1, 2017. Congratulations Julie !

The Town Office is carrying recycle bins for your convenience. Just like our compost bins, we will be passing these onto you at COST, if you choose to purchase them. You do not have to be a resident to purchase these.
We are stocking these recycle bins in response to many comments from residents who are looking for an easy way to sort their recyclables at home. Remember… recycling is required at the Transfer Station whether you bring your trash there or have someone else do it for you.
These bins are space saving, stackable (with or without the cover on), and have an easy access front flap which can stay open if desired. Each bin is 24” x 18” x 17”.
Set of 3 bins is $42.00 ‘cash and carry’ while in stock. These bins are in stock for your viewing. Stop into the Town Office or call us (832.5369) for more details.
