Challenges and Priorities

North Haven Challenges and Priorities

On Sunday, August 18, 2019, the Select Board hosted a meeting with all residents to discuss the current state of the town and its future. Jon Demmons, Select Board Chair, opened the meeting. You may find his remarks here. Rick Lattimer, Town Administrator, ran through a series of slides and moderated a discussion.

Among the challenges we are facing as a community are:


Bulletin Board

Emergency Services

In case of emergency, please dial 911.  North Haven participates in the Knox County Emergency Management System.  Upon calling, a 911 operator will take your information and immediately contact North Haven's EMS and Fire Department, as appropriate.

Contracting Opportunity - Electrical Services

The Town of North Haven seeks a qualified electrician to upgrade interior lights in our Community Building to LED lights, to repair a motion-sensor switch, and to install exterior lights to shine on the adjacent basketball court.  Details concerning this opportunity may be found here.  The town will consider sealed bids.  Bids must be received in the Town Office by Friday, December 20, 2019 at 4:30 pm or be postmarked by Friday, December 20, 2019.

Recycling at the Transfer Station

Burn Pile

Please remember that the burn pile is restricted to brush and untreated wood. (Latex painted construction debris is allowed.) Access to and use of the burn pile is primarily on an "honor system". The Transfer Station staff cannot continuously monitor the pile. The discarding of noxious and toxic debris which ends up being burned may result in drastic action by the state Department of Environmental Protection, up to and including permanent closure.
