Appointments can be made at or by calling 207-874-8300.

City Hall will remain closed to the public until June 22 for all but a few transactions:

  • Birth, death, and marriage certificates
  • Voting & elections
  • Dog, hunting, and fishing licenses
  • Auto and boat registration
  • Excise tax payment
