Lincoln Gap Road Closed June 26-29

The Lincoln Gap Road to Warren will be closed from June 26-29 for replacement of culverts.  Work will be done on both sides of the mountain.  Please respect any barriers and do not follow construction vehicles into the work zone.  Signs will be removed when the work is done and the road is re-opened.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Lister Grievances

The abstract of the 2018 Grand List is available for review at the Lincoln Town Office.  Lister Grievance Hearings will be held on Monday, June 25, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. at the Town Office.  All grievances must be received in writing by June 25th.  Call (802)453-2980 to make an appointment or ask questions.

Lincoln Gap Road is open

The Lincoln Gap Road is officially open for the summer season.  It’s not unheard of to have heavy frosts or even snow in June, so use common sense and proceed with caution on cold mornings!  The road crew has also taken down the posted signs on dirt roads now.  It seems that spring is finally here!

Dog License due date extended to April 2

Dog licenses are due every year by April 1st, which is a Sunday, so we are extending the deadline to April 2.  After that date, there is an added late fee for licensing your dog.  You will need to submit a rabies certificate showing a current vaccination, and the fees are $15 for spayed or neutered dogs and $19 for intact dogs.

Roads are posted

The Selectboard has officially posted our dirt roads for weigh limits due to extreme temperature changes.  Please contact Road Foreman, Dave Cavoretto, at (802)453-3703 to obtain permission for overweight vehicle travel if necessary.
