Annual Report to the Town of Northport
A Message from Senator Michael Thibodeau
February 2012
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
I am grateful for the trust you have placed in me to work for the citizens of Northport and our region. Representing
your interests this past year in the Maine State Senate has been truly a rewarding experience. Thank you for allowing me the
opportunity to be your voice in Augusta.
When Republicans took their oath of office last December, we promised to move Maine in a new direction and to
make our state more prosperous and affordable to all Mainers. Lawmakers also faced dire budget projections of a billion
dollar shortfall. Many doubted we could attain anything substantive with the obstacles before us. Instead of looking at quickfix solutions to the problems before us, we met our challenges head on by rolling up our sleeves and working together. Over
the months that ensued, the Legislature approved a number of significant reform measures to our health insurance market, tax
policies, and state regulations.
Looking back at the results of the First Regular Session, I believe legislators made significant strides in addressing
Maine’s most pressing needs during extremely difficult times. We did so while avoiding a government shutdown and the
polarizing situations that occurred in other states. Leadership made the decision early on in the session that we would insist
on a two-thirds budget and we would create a culture of inclusion, respect and consensus. We increased state funding to local
schools by $65 million, brought solvency to the retiree pension system, insisted on more transparency and accountability at
the Maine Turnpike Authority, and paid back our local hospitals millions of dollars that had been owed to them for years. We
worked hard to deliver the changes we promised, and we succeeded.
Though important progress has been made, lawmakers have had a great deal of work since returning to Augusta in
January. The most daunting task has been addressing a staggering $120 million shortfall within the Department of Health and
Human Services and its MaineCare program. In terms of all spending, MaineCare accounts for 32 percent of the state budget
and enrollment is expected to grow at more than three times the rate of our revenues over the next four years. Difficult
structural changes to the MaineCare program must be made soon; but I am confident that if we continue to work together as
we did last year, we can return MaineCare back to a sustainable and quality system that protects Maine’s most at-risk
citizens.
Again, thank you for entrusting me to represent you in Augusta. Please feel free to contact me if you ever need my
help in navigating the state bureaucracy. I can be reached in Augusta at 287-1505.
Sincerely,
Michael Thibodeau
Maine State Senator

Annual Report 2011-2012
TOWN ADMINISTRATOR’S REPORT
In looking back over the past year there was a lot of what I’ll call “behind the
scenes” work that took place. The Beech Ridge Cemetery (off Nebraska Road) was
surveyed, plotted, prices set and the section to be developed made ready for grass.
Rules and Regulations to cover all our cemeteries were put into effect. The database of recording all plots in our cemeteries is a work in progress. This involves
going to each cemetery and writing down information from each and every stone.
(Volunteers would be appreciated!)
Office policies, procedures and practices were developed and approved by the
Board. These policies outline the process of transactions at the counter; accounting methods; tax billing/collection; accounts payable; the audit, etc. This sets
down the system that office personnel use when helping residents who come into
the office or call with a question.
With voter approval, construction on the new Sand and Salt Garage began in July
and was completed in October. This allows winter sand and salt to be mixed and
stored inside a building. Housing these materials will eliminate the waste that occurred at the old site where materials were at the mercy of the elements and often
washed away. Keeping in mind residents like to get their 5 gallon bucket of winter
sand for their driveways, the Selectmen designated the shed at the old site as a place
to continue this practice. You cannot get sand at the new garage and should not
be there when the contractor is loading in preparation for a storm. As a reminder,
please keep your driveways and walkways clear in the winter should emergency
personnel need to get to you.
A drainage project in Temple Heights was completed. This involved Mountain and
High Streets where new catch basins and culverts were installed as well as ditching and grading work. With recent heavy spring rains the Road Commissioner
has reported these improvements have worked very well diverting water in a more
controlled manner.
Internet access in Northport continues to be a challenge. Fairpoint did minimal upgrades and Lincolnville Communications is taking some baby steps into Northport.
Our biggest hope may lay with Maine Fiber Company’s Three Ring Binder Project.
This is an ambitious project laying 1,100 miles of fiber optics in rural Maine, going
right through Northport on Route 1. When complete, internet providers will be
able to buy into the fiber and then offer the service to customers.

There are changes coming to the Transfer Station. New vehicle stickers for all
Northport residents will be required by July 1, 2012 and each year thereafter. You
can get one at the Town Office during regular business hours. Also as of 7-1-2012,
cash will no longer be accepted at the Transfer Station. This has been a recommendation from the auditors for a while now and the time has come to put this in place.
We recommend purchasing your bag stickers ahead of time. The Town’s license
from the DEP to operate the transfer station is for RESIDENTIAL use only. This
excludes contractors and businesses and applies to their recyclable items also. As
a reminder, Zero Sort Recycling is NOT for trash. There is an informational sheet
at the office and a magnet outlining what IS recyclable. You can also find a lot of
information on the Town’s website: www.northportmaine.org
Over the past year I was glad to hear from residents who had questions, concerns
or just a comment. Thanks again to all our employees who are here to help in any
way they can. I know firsthand they go above and beyond in assisting customers
and helping the Town run smoothly!
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”

NORTHPORT VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT
ANNUAL REPORT 2011
The Fire Department has had 9 Fire calls ranging from grass fires to structure fires.
We had 1 explosion complaint, 2 EMS assist calls, 23 accident calls which range
from simple clean up to serious injuries, 27 citizen assist calls which varies from
power lines down to flooded basements, and 7 false alarms.
We have also had about 25 training classes this year which totals 711 man hours.
There are 6 Fire Fighters who are attending various Fire Attack Schools this year.
The Fire Fighters will attend classes that range from receiving their SCBA certification to learning how to better operate our imaging camera, operate the pumps
on our fire trucks, and how extricate patients from their vehicle in a safe manner.
An annual reminder that burn permits are required for anything other than a recreational cooking fire. Which is defined by a 2 foot containment ring of sort. Anything larger will require you to obtain a permit at Bayside Store, Wentworth Family
Market, The Northport Town Office, and the Fire Chief Please be reminded that it
is a privilege to burn not a right.
Anyone interested in joining the Northport Fire Department our monthly meeting
is the first Tuesday of every month at the Beach Hill Station

NORTHPORT FIRST RESPONDERS REPORT FOR 2011
In 2011, the Northport First Responders responded to nearly 100 calls, which is
typical of the last few years. As in the past, the type of call responded to has varied from life threatening emergencies to simply helping someone with physical
limitations get up from a non-injuring fall. Motor vehicle accidents still top the list
of incidents that the First Responders are called for and most of those happen on
Atlantic Highway (Rt. 1). The response urgency associated with these calls also
covers a wide spectrum and we very much appreciate the drivers in our town who
quickly and safely pull off the road and allow the rescue to pass. Thank you!
Training
The First Responders accumulate in excess of 38 credit hours of training in four
categories over a three year period to maintain an EMT-Basic license. In addition to
the required training to maintain licensure, there is also required training enforced
through the Bureau of Labor Standards that has to be delivered on an annual basis.
Ahead
The First Responders anticipate the delivery of a new (new to us anyway) rescue in May. We have been very fortunate to have Ron Morin of Sugarloaf Ambulance/Rescue Vehicles assisting us in finding a used rescue at a reasonable price
($14,000). For anyone curious, the cost of a brand new ambulance seems to be in
the neighborhood of $150,000, but that certainly is not what the First Responders
needed nor considered. The rescue we will be taking delivery of, a 2004 Horton
Type 1 ambulance built on a Ford F450 chassis with around 90,000 miles, will
replace a 1988 Type III ambulance on a Ford E350 chassis with an unknown number of miles (we don’t know how many times the odometer has turned over full
scale). The old rescue has far more wrong with it than just a lot of miles, there are
mechanical problems with the engine and transmission and the corrosion problems
that most vehicles have when operating around salt and snow mixtures for 20 plus
years. Aside from the reasonable price, the new rescue has one other feature that is
a bonus for us, it is a 4WD. This will help us to reach some of the locations that we
have had difficulty reaching in the last few years, but for those who have driveways
or live on non-town maintained roads, we ask that you please maintain those in
passable/plowed condition.
There still remain two repeat problems that the Northport Volunteer Fire Department; Northport First Responders and Belfast Ambulance are experiencing when
serving our residents. One would be the lack of house numbers on yours or your
neighbors’ homes. Please help us to find you; or your neighbor; by placing a number

at the end of your driveway, mailbox or on your house that can be seen by E.M.S.
from the road. The second matter is the previously mentioned unmaintained or
unsafe driveways. If the response vehicle cannot make it to the residence, carrying someone up/down a snow and ice covered driveway/road is very risky to all
involved.
Thank you all for the generous support that Northport has provided for the First
Responders in the past and we hope to continue to earn your trust and respect in
the coming years.
Thank You,
Henry Lang

NORTHPORT RIDGE RIDERS
The Northport Ridge Riders would like to thank all landowners in Northport for
letting us use your land for snowmobiling and snow shoeing trails in the winter
months. In the summer months the trails are used for hiking, walking, taking photos and just taking the family out to enjoy life in Northport.
If it were not for the landowners in Northport allowing us to use their land we
would be limited to land use for family enjoyment.
Thank you.

Bob Lafontaine

TO THE TAXPAYERS OF RSU #20:
The world of public education is going through a period of tremendous change and
RSU #20 is no exception. Most of you are aware of the financial challenges facing
the RSU as well as your community due to the impact of the current economy on
state funding. Efforts to deal with financial shortfalls have, and will likely continue
to result in changes for the educational system as we have known it. In an attempt
to meet the anticipated shortfall of $2.4 million, these changes may come in the
form of further cuts in programs and services, school closing and/or consolidation,
higher class sizes, and higher taxes.
We are also faced with changes being considered in curriculum, assessment, and
the manner that education is offered to students. Our Commissioner of Education,
Stephen Bowen, has put forth a concept for how education in Maine may look in
the future. The most significant feature of the Commissioner’s plan is that students
move forward by the measure of their educational growth, not by the number of
hours or years spent in a classroom. This has a significant impact on how we provide education for our students.
I encourage you to stay informed to what is happening in your RSU, and please
take a moment to thank the Board of Directors from your community for the time
and effort they spend representing you. I sincerely thank you for your support as
we maintain a high quality educational system for the youth of RSU #20.
Sincerely,
Bruce A. Mailloux
Superintendent of Schools
