Welcome to the Town of Burlington
Where hometown spirit and community pride abound.
***** BURLINGTON COMES TOGETHER FOR A GREAT CAUSE . . . “I would like to thank everyone involved with the “benefit supper for JR Cross” today. It was amazing to see the show of support for one of ours in need. Over 100 people attended and many more showed their support from away. It’s this type of caring and kindness that makes our little community such a wonderful place to be a part of. A special thanks to all the members of the Aux. and the ladies from Lincoln for all your hard work that made this event possible.” ~ John Smith, Fire Chief, Burlington Municipal Fire Department.

***** ATTENTION DOG OWNERS . . . The State of Maine requires that dogs be licensed in the town of residence of the owner. Each dog six months of age or older must be licensed. Dog licenses expire on December 31st of each year. Additional late fees are imposed after January 31st of each year. The cost is $6.00 for each altered dog, $11.00 for each unaltered dog. To receive a license, dog owners must show a State of Maine rabies certificate, a spay or neuter certificate, and provide your dog’s veterinarian’s name and phone number (if this information isn’t already on file at the Clerk’s office). See the Town Clerk, Suzanne Shorey, to register your dog(s). Any questions, please call Suzanne at 732-3768.
***** HOMEOWNERS . . . The ISO rating for Burlington has improved to an 8B-10. When renewing your homeowners insurance policy be sure your insurance company has that rating as this will greatly reduce your fire insurance premium. A copy of the letter confirming this reduction may be obtained from the town office if needed.
