Town Office COVID-19 Closure

Due to the state of emergency declared by Governor Scott, the Lincoln Town Office is closed for walk-in business.  Town Officials will continue to do our work and we will stagger our hours to avoid contact with each other.  We encourage you to do business with us remotely.  Several of us who work here are among the very vulnerable population, so please stay away if there is any chance you could be infecting us!  Payments and applications may be left in the drop box, and you are welcome to email or call for things we can assist you with that way.  Email is best. Thank you for your understanding and we will re-open as soon as we are advised that it is safe to do so.    

Dog license late fees start July 1

By State law, all dog owners must register their pet annually by April 1, with their Town Clerk. (This deadline has not changed due to the COVID 19 epidemic.) You will need to present a current rabies vaccination certificate and pay a fee. The cost is $15 for spayed or neutered animals and $19 if still intact. This may be done by mail or via the office drop box, and we will mail your tag to you. If your pet’s rabies vaccination has expired, now is the time to try to get that appointment scheduled!

Roads are posted

The dirt roads have now been posted with weight limits for mud season. If you must receive a delivery from an overweight vehicle, please have the driver contact Road Foreman, Dave Cavoretto, at (802)453-3703 to obtain permission and determine the best timing. Please give as much notice as possible.

Lincoln All Hazards Mitigation Plan, draft, for comments

Every five years the Town works with the Addison County Regional Planning Commission to create an All Hazards Mitigation Plan. This plan looks at the potential and likelihood of various emergencies in town, such as flooding, high winds and power outages, and how we can best minimize, or mitigate, the impact of those emergencies by taking steps in advance. In addition to helping the Town prepare for potential emergencies, having this plan in place enables us to receive up to an additional 10% in funding from Vermont Emergency Management in case of a FEMA level event, and also lowers our match for Class 2 grants from 30% to 20%- a significant savings.

This Plan is nearly done (it is clear where there are numbers, dates, etc. to be updated), and as a part of the approval process, is open to the public for comments. Please read and review the document, and if you have any comments or concerns, email Ann at townbk@lincolnvermont.org. Please click on the download button below. Thank you!
