The Town of Deering Selectmen and Emergency Management Team are monitoring the updates from Federal and State officials regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). In light of the recent recommendations and State of Emergency announced by the Governor, our town departments are adjusting accordingly. To protect the public and staff from exposure and ensure continuity of service we are implementing several proactive steps.
The Board of Selectmen in cooperation with the Town Clerk/Tax Collector voted March 17th, effective March 18th, to protect public health during the COVID-19 Emergency, to limit access all town buildings to essential employees, officials and visitors by appointment.
