Fire officials advise “follow the permit” following uptick in illegal burns

No recommendations to council following public hearings

LINCOLN - The town’s Planning Board will have no new recommendations on either subjects of Tuesday’s special public hearing. Board members heard discussion from both the public and its own members on both a proposed property maintenance ordinance and a change to the DR1, or Downtown Residential 1, zone. Resident Mitch McConnell said the proposed property ordinance, was a positive thing for the town. “The town does a lot to make the town look great,” he said, citing examples of the street sweeping and town signage among others. “If you are doing all those things in an official way, the domestic way could use a little uplift.” The ordinance tasks residents to keep their property free and near of household trash, refuse and debris that is “unsightly and may act as a breeding place for vermin and/or a source of neighborhood litter.” It proposes a $25 fine per day until the offending material is removed.

Board told no one wants public water, sewer at public hearing on referendum question

Millinocket street light project complete

MILLINOCKET—The town of Millinocket has a new look—well, at least during the dark hours of night. Emera Maine recently completed the changing of street lights in the Magic City. Emera Maine completed the replacement of sodium-based bulbs to that of LED (Light Emitting Diode), according to Public works director Ralph Soucier. The replacement of the street lamps to LED fixtures was at the cost of Emera Maine so the town is getting the upgrade in street lights at no charge to them. And it will save Millinocket taxpayers money. The LED replacement bulbs use less energy and thus will cost less in the long run. This should greatly reduce the light bill that Millinocket is charged from Emera Maine. Most of the street lights were 250 watts and the LED replacement lights will realize a cost savings using only 64 watts but provide more directness with the beam of light; it is also purported to be brighter.

The organization has been serving the region for 10 years “and provides barrier-free access to recovery support for individuals seeking to obtain or sustain recovery from substance use disorders.” “They want to work with us in this area,” Leathers said. “Bangor is the hub of services in the region and they want the Katahdin region to be a spoke in that hub. They feel like it’s a good location because of the access to three medical facilities in MRH, Health Access and KVHC.”
