(The State Legislature recently approved a bill to allow municipal governing bodies to meet remotely for as long as the governor’s emergency order is in effect, plus an additional 30 days.) Zoom provides a platform for the Select Board to meet remotely while also allowing for public participation. Questions about online meetings can be directed to Monica McCarthy at (207) 716-6780 or townofrome@live.com.

The Board of Selectmen met on 6/12/2020 and set the mill rate at $10.77 for the 2020 tax year, an increase of 75 cents per thousand.
Factors contributing to this increase include:
1) A proposed 5% increase in Rome’s RSU 18 school tax and 6.4% increase in Kennebec County tax. 
2) Rome’s increase also includes an overlay of just over $80k to compensate for anticipated decreases in state revenue sharing and other revenue due to COVID-19, as well as discounts for early payment of property tax.









If you have an item you would like the Board of Selectmen to consider, please e-mail the Board at townofrome@live.com or send a letter to the Board’s attention at 8 Mercer Rd., Rome, ME 04963
At regular meetings, there is a period for public comment.
