News from the Owls Head, South Thomaston, Thomaston Transfer Facility.

While our country, state and local communities are living and working through the covid 19 pandemic, the Owls Head, South Thomaston, Thomaston Transfer Facility remains open to the public. I would like to assure all of our taxpayers that we will do everything in our power to keep the facility open and safe for our staff and the general public! We will however, like many places throughout our communities, be making some temporary changes. We will continue to monitor the ever changing situation to see if more changes are needed.

The Transfer facility will temporarily reduce it’s crew by half to reduce exposures and to have backup crew case anyone of our crew become ill.

With the reduced crew, our staff will not be able to assist the people using our facility like we have done in the past.  Our crew will be there to give the public direction and to run the machinery.

All our buildings will also be closed to the general public. If you should need to get someone attention, please knock on the door or window.

People that come into our facility will have to take care of the material they bring in themselves. We ask people not to cluster at any of the stations at the facility.  We ask the public to be patient with the staff, and each other.

I would like to assure the taxpayers of our three towns that our board is working hard for you through this difficult time. We are in contact with each other in multiple ways. We will be holding our meetings on their regularly scheduled time via video communications. If anyone wishes to conduct business with the Board they may do so by email. The email address is [email protected]  The board has a full plate working through this ever changing time. We ask that all email be kept to somewhat of an urgent manner or business needs.  I ask our tax payers to be patient with us as we work through this difficult time.  It could take some time to respond, with things changing by the hour.

Respectfully submitted,

Bruce E Colson, Chairman
