Public Info Meeting – FY 18 Town and Hwy Proposed Budgets Tue 2/21 6:30 – 7:30

Due to bad weather on Feb 16, there was no turnout for our scheduled budget informational meeting – therefore we will schedule the first hour of our regular select board meeting on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21 for presentation of the Lincoln Select Board’s proposed FY 2018 (7/1/17 – 6/30/18) budget in an informal informational meeting. This is a good opportunity to be well informed before voting on the proposed budget at Town Meeting on March 6th.


Recycling Drop Off & Transfer Station Changes

Town of Lincoln

Public Notice

Recycling Drop Off and Transfer Station Users

Lincoln’s solid waste and recycling transfer facility will have a new operator, effective Saturday, December 17. Randy Orvis dba MOOSE Trash and Recycling will manage and operate the facility off Downingsville Road. Household trash for disposal and recyclable materials will be collected in separate trailers at the transfer station. MOOSE will haul the collected material to the Addison County Solid Waste Transfer Station in Middlebury.

The only differences you will notice at the transfer station will be a trailer substituted for a packer truck to receive bagged trash. Recyclables will be deposited in a separate trailer instead of a roll-off container. Individuals working at the transfer station will be employed by MOOSE rather than the Town of Lincoln. Tire disposal will cost $4.00 per tire for average passenger car or light truck tires. Larger tires will cost more.

The following will remain the same:

  1. Operating Hours will remain 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM every Saturday
  2. Transfer Station stickers, available to Lincoln residents at the Town Clerk’s Office or Lincoln General Store will still be required.
  3. Trash disposal will cost $5.00 per regular size trash bag. Larger or smaller bags may cost more or less depending on size as determined by the attendant.
  4. Recycling will continue to be free of charge.
  5. Lumber or construction materials or debris will not be accepted at the transfer station. (ACSWMD Transfer Station in Middlebury will accept this material)
  6. Clean metal items will be accepted. NO MAJOR APPLIANCES (ACSWMD Transfer Station in Middlebury will accept these items)

Your cooperation in proper disposal of trash and recycling will help assure continued operation of this facility at a reasonable cost.


Regular Select Board Meeting Scheduled for 11.01.16 changed to 11.02.16

This meeting date and time has changed to avoid possible conflict with a Lincoln School Board meeting scheduled for the same time to discuss the ramifications of a proposed merger of ANESU  member town school districts.1-agenda-11-02-16-resched


The Town road crew has started work on a project that will improve safety, drainage and aesthetics on the paved section of Gove Hill Road from the Lincoln Firehouse to the end of pavement. This project includes grinding existing asphalt pavement, adding and mixing new raod base material, resizing and replacement of culverts, realignment of drainage ditches with stone lining to better manage drainage while mitigating environmental impact to the New Haven River and Lake Champlain. Part of this section of road has been dramatically narrowed by large trees that now overhang and encroach on the traveled part of the road, reducing visibility  and overall safety. Some trees will be removed or trimmed.

This project will require temporary road closing for three days, Wednesday – Friday, July 6-8. On those days the road will be closed from 6:00 AM – 6:00 PM to all traffic except residents who live along that affected stretch. We appreciate your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience. We will do our best to expedite the work to minimize the closure time.
