Services All programs are evaluated each year and we have changed how we provide recreational services to fit the needs of each community. We have eliminated or decreased some programs as well as working with outside agencies to develop lifelong programs with no financial obligation. We work closely with Little League, Little Giant Football, Jr. Pro Basketball, Hillcrest Golf Course, Transition Team, Katahdin Area Partnership, local Police, Public Works and Wastewater departments.
Services Continued Recreation writes and administers the Municipal Snowmobile Grants for three local snowmobile clubs. This present year, the grants total over $310,000 which is reimbursed 70% by the State. Over the past ten years, we have decreased the budget by 25% while increasing programming. We organize and train recreation staff in pool and waterfront care and operation. We include public works and wastewater in any required training.

Due to decreasing population and number of children in each community, the present programs would not be able to be offered by any one community and succeeds because of the tri-town effort.
Additional Information We have 3 people on staff that are certified pool operators, due to federal laws that require us to have a C.P.O. on staff anytime the pool is open. In addition, Jody Nelson and I are certified in confined space training.
