The Board of Selectmen has resumed in-person meetings at the town office.  Masks are required, We ask that members of the public RSVP for meetings by noon on the meeting date so arrangements can be made for appropriate social distancing in the building.  A Zoom link may also be requested, or assigned if building occupancy limits (per public health recommendations) are exceeded.  Space will be reserved for in-person attendees on a first come, first served basis.  Reserve your place by emailing or calling 397-4011.   

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.
