PARIS — The Board of Selectmen voted Monday night to hold the annual Town Meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, July 20.

It will be held at the fire station on Western Avenue. With the doors open, the town can easily seat 50 people, the limit for a gathering in Maine, according to Gov. Janet Mills’ COVID-19 policy.

Town Manager Dawn Noyes said any beyond that would be seated outside the station, possibly under a tent.

Residents will vote on the 2020-21 municipal budget that night.

Local elections will be held during the Maine primary on July 14 for two selectmen for three-year terms. Voters will also elect two School Administrative District 17 directors and two Paris Utility District directors.

Selectmen voted to dedcate the town report to Paris’ first responders.

In new business, selectmen agreed to give the Oxford Hills ATV Trail Blazers permission to use Bisco Road, Elm Hill Road and High Street. The extra five miles of roads would allow for additional grant money for the trails.

Selectmen will meet again Monday, June 22.
