Welcome to Chelsea

Chelsea Residents

It is illegal under State Law (29A MRSA 2396) to push snow or slush into public roads.

The law provides for penalties to violators. It is against the law and also very dangerous. Your cooperation in ending this practice will be appreciated.

The Board of Selectmen also wants to make residents aware that replacement of damaged mailboxes is prohibited by policy. While damaging of a mailbox is unfortunate and inconvenient the Town will not approve the repair or replacement of mailboxes. A copy of the policy is available on the town website or for more information or questions please contact the Town Manager at 207-582-4802.
