Brunswick COVID-19 Information                          (Updated 03-30-2020)

The Town of Brunswick is working closely with federal, state and local partners to monitor and respond to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. 

All Town of Brunswick municipal buildings will be closed to the public through at least April 8th. Employees will work to serve the public by e-mail, telephone and through the website.

Vehicle Registrations -- Please be aware that under Governor Mills’ Executive Order 18: "An Order Extending Compliance Dates Under Certain Motor Vehicle Laws", motor vehicle and trailer registrations (including temporary registrations) that expire DURING the state of emergency (which began March 15th) will be extended until 30 days following the termination of the state of emergency.

Property Taxes -- The Town Council voted to extend the property tax due date by one month to May 15th. The Town Council recognizes that individuals and families are struggling financially and this change is aimed at providing some measure of relief.

Trash Bags -- On Monday, March 30, 2020, the Town Council voted to temporarily suspend the pay-as-you-throw program. This means you can use other types of trash bags instead of the blue bags for your trash. However, if it is not an economic hardship for you to purchase the blue bags, the Council strongly encourages you to continue using them.

Executive Order 19: An Order Regarding Essential Businesses and Operations - Governor Mills issued an Executive Order on Tuesday, March 25th mandating that all non-essential businesses and operations in Maine close their physical locations that are public facing, meaning those that allow customer, vendor or other in-person contact. The Order also closes non-essential business sites that require more than ten workers to convene in a space where physical distancing is not possible. Non-essential businesses and operations may continue activities that do not involve these types of in-person contact and convenings, and should facilitate the maximum number of employees working remotely. The Order is effective March 25, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. and extends for a period of 14 days through April 8, 2020 at 12:00 a.m.
