WE HAVE MOVED
The Town Office is now located in the back of the
Kezar Falls Fire Station.
The residents of Porter voted last year to replaced the Town Hall , built in 1919, with a new building. The new building will be a single level building, easier to maintain, more energy efficient, and completely ADA accessible.
We will keep you updated on the progress by adding photos of the different stages of demolition and construction.
The abatement of hazardous materials was done by Atlantic Environmental Contractors, Inc. of Lewiston, Maine, and demolition of the building was done by P.Y. Estes and Son, Inc. of Baldwin, Maine. Site work in preparation for the concrete work will also be done by P.Y. Estes and Son, Inc. The concrete work will be done by J.J. Concrete of Limerick, Maine
