Quarterly Town Newsletter – June 2016

The Town of Lisbon is launching a quarterly newsletter to better communicate with residents and businesses in the Town what efforts and projects the municipal government are undertaking during the quarter and to notify the public of significant events or dates to allow for participation and dissemination of information. This Newsletter will be released on-line and in PDF format and will be available on the Town’s web site. If you would prefer a hard copy, this PDF will be downloadable or a copy may be requested at the Town offices for the usual copy fee. This outreach effort is largely due to the efforts of the Board of Selectmen and Tom Demers in particular, as they had wanted to create another means of distributing information to the public that would allow residents, businesses and staff to all better understand the workings of the Town’s governmental departments and how they relate to each other.

The Newsletter can be downloaded below, or pick up a copy at Town Hall.
