Message from the Rollinsford Police Department:

With our neighbors starting to lose their jobs, we would like to assist the Seeds of Faith Food Pantry in the collection of donations of non perishable food items and toiletries. Starting this Saturday and every Saturday thereafter from 9 am to 12 pm, the PD will be available to receive donations. Items may be dropped off at our garage door and someone will then bring them inside to be delivered to the pantry. If you are able to make a monetary donation, please place the check made out to the RPBA in the secure drop box at the front door of the town hall or mail to the RPD, PO Box 438. If you can spare anything it will certainly help out your neighbor who may not be so lucky during this trying time. Thank you.

Update Regarding Transfer Station Protocol

We appreciate everyone moving through the Transfer Station as quickly as possible, not stopping for a friendly chat, and handling their own waste.

There is one more precautionary change we are implementing effective Wednesday, March 25th.

The Transfer Station will not be accepting cash. Please pay by check whenever possible.

If you have any bulky items to dispose of, including demolition debris, which has a fee for disposal, please see the Attendant. If you are not able to pay by check, the Attendant will issue something that looks like the receipt you once received but it is now a bill. The staff will retain a copy for Town records. Payment by check or cash may be submitted to the Town Office via the drop box in the front door, or via mail at PO Box 309. DO NOT MAIL CASH. We appreciate checks for all transactions whenever possible. Checks should be made out to “Town of Rollinsford.”

Payments are due in 60 days though there is no fee for late payment. However, payments are expected by the end of November so we can close the books on 2020 properly. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Thank you for continuing to adapt with us through these extraordinary circumstances.

Select Board Meeting 3.23.20

Change in Town Functions

Town Hall is closed to the public for at least two weeks. Staff are working on-site during open hours. We accept cash or check only for all purposes.

Please deposit items for processing in the drop box in the front door of the Town Office or mail them. We will mail registrations, Transfer Station stickers and other items back to you. Please include a phone number or email address in case we need to reach you. We apologize in advance for the delay caused by the manner in which we need to interact under the circumstances. Please allow extra time for processing and submit items for processing earlier than you might usually.

There will be no meetings for the next two weeks with the exception of the Select Board meeting on Monday, March 23rd. Meetings must always be open to the public. However, if you feel ill in any way, we ask that for the foreseeable future you do not attend meetings or enter any public buildings. Comments to committees and boards can be made in writing through the office and will be passed on to the appropriate committee. If you leave contact information and you require a response, someone will respond to you.

Transfer Station protocol: The Transfer Station will remain open. However, we ask that for the safety of the employees and one another, that you do not stop to talk with neighbors or employees. Keep moving! Unfortunately, during this time, the employees have been directed NOT to assist people with their waste. We apologize for this but feel it is in everyone’s best interest.
