As the Public Services Director, I am but a small part of a team that makes up the departments of Highway, Transfer Station, Wastewater Treatment, and Parks & Recreation. These groups provide multiple services to this prestigious area. Highway works tirelessly keeping roadways clear and safe during the winter months. They make sure the boat docks are put in and taken out every year as well as infrastructure maintenance during the warmer seasons. The Transfer Station accommodates removal of household waste while facilitating bulky waste such as construction materials, furniture, and appliances. We operate extended business hours during the summer months to insure adequate opportunity of disposal. We all know what the Sewer department provides, and we are all thankful that this group and its facility is a step above ensuring that the waters of the Rangeley region are preserved. Parks and Recreation works to keep our Town parks clean and inviting as well as offering multiple programs throughout the year, most of which are concentrated in the summer months.

All these departments are very dedicated to proving a full-service infrastructure in a rural location. Our goal is that everyone who visits Rangeley has a seamless, relaxing experience. If you need assistance, have suggestions, or are simply curious in any of these areas, please do not hesitate to contact me at the Town Office at 207-864-3326.

We Welcome you to the neighborhood.

Public Services Director
