The first Amity Town Office was built in 2001. At a special Town Meeting it was voted to have the local students from the Southern Aroostook Vocational Education (SAVE) building trades class from Hodgdon High School build the office. It was finished with the help of our dependable volunteers. Previously the Town business was conducted at the Town Manager's home.

There was a small fire in early January of 2005, while Darrell Williams was Town Manager, which was caused by a kerosene wall heater. The office was still usable after some cleaning and airing. However, about a week later it burned again. This time taking the roof off. Fortunately, the Houlton Fire Department was able to save most of the town records. This fire was attribuated to an electric heater placed to close to a pile of papers. 

The picture that you see now is the new Amity Town Office, built in the spring of 2005.

Town Meeting:

Town Meeting is always the last Saturday in March at 9:00AM.

Selectpersons Meetings:

The Selectpersons meet on the first Monday of each month at 6:00PM at the Town Office.

The Honor Roll project is placed on hold due to not being able to secure a piece of property to place it on. All fundraising has stop[ed until land is secured for this project.

However, if you are interested in donating to this project in the future you may notify the town office or Larry Hamilton (especially if you wish to remain anonymous) of your intentions. We will let you know when this project is restarted.

Quite a few people noticed the large American flag over the Veterans' Honor Roll, donated by Rep. Bruce Polquin after being flown over the Capital in DC, was missing and after a bit two flags went up in it's place.

The large flag had gotten tangled in the big tree by it. It was taken down and minor repairs made to the hem. The flag pole has been loosened by frost and would need resetting. The Honor Roll stone is quite small and nearly unnoticeable from the road, a few people mentioned that it just looks like another grave. We also found some names on the stone that should not be there prompting discussion of a new stone. All of this led to a conversation with the Selectmen on what we should do about the situation.
