 LIGHTS OF LOVE

Fire Auxiliary Tree Lighting    

POSTPONED TO SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6TH AT 6 PM

ALL WELCOME  

MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING WILL BE REQUIRED

A real tree has been placed at the Sumner Town Office/Fire Department. All of the bulbs will be blue. Every bulb will be donated by a resident, friend or neighbor of Sumner and surrounding communities. The bulbs will cost $5 per name. The bulbs can be “in honor of” or “in memory of” whomever you choose.  Come for the lighting, a cookie and a visit from Santa.

CO-VID PROCEDURES

To our residents and property owners: Thank you for your patience as we work through  pandemic logistics.

Although there is no entry into the Town office building, all transactions may be completed either using the drop box for a future pickup, processed while you wait in your vehicle, the mail, or over the phone. We now have 2 phone lines. If 388-2866 is busy, please call 388-2862. We will transfer the fax line to receive a call.

The Town of Sumner is following State of Maine directives. You must wear a CDC approved mask and maintain 6 foot distancing to be served curb-side.

Please do not ring the doorbell unless you step back and wear a mask.  

This procedure is for your safety and ours.  No mask-No service-No exceptions. With respect and consideration to all of us, we will accomplish what is needed. As of 11/25/2020, this is the procedure. We will continue to monitor the State recommendations and conditions.

MOTOR VEHICLE WORKSHEETS

Worksheets have been created to help you know what papers and other documents you will need.

*

If you need to re-register a vehicle that has been registered in Sumner before, you will use the RE-REGISTRATION WORKSHEET.

If you need to register a vehicle that is new to you, whether it was purchased from a dealer or an individual, you will use the NEW REGISTRATION WORKSHEET.

For all new registrations, you will also need to fill out a USE TAX FORM unless you have already paid sales tax with a dealer.

The Title Application form is a multi-page form, so you will need to acquire that form at the TOWN OFFICE.  Look on the new registration worksheet to verify that you have all the documents that are needed.

And, of course, you may call the Town Office to answer your questions.
