Third-Party Donation Requests

In recent years, a range of charitable organizations have requested funding from Town taxpayers in connection with the Blue Hill Annual Town meeting.

At its Monday meeting, the Blue Hill Select Board approved minor amendments to its “Policy Regarding Town Meeting Funding Requests from Nonprofit Organizations,” which describes the process for making such requests and identifies the information requested by the Select Board and the Budget Committee as they review incoming requests and consider their recommendations to Town voters.

The form identifying the requested information is available here and via the home page.

For this year, the deadline for submitting applications is January 31, 2024. (The normal deadline under the policy is December 31 of the preceding year.)

Transfer Station Closure

In light of the storm forecast for tomorrow, the Transfer Station will be closed on Saturday, September 16.  The facility is open today, and staff have been asked to secure loose, valuable, or dangerous items over the course of the day.

We expect the Transfer Station will observe its normal opening hours next week.
