Raymond Waterways Protective Association is hiring!



Manager, Courtesy Boat Inspection (CBI) program, RWPA - Raymond Maine 


The Raymond Waterways Protective Association (RWPA) is dedicated to preserving the water quality of Raymond’s lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams. Among other things, it has taken the lead in eradicating invasive milfoil in the Raymond waters of Sebago Lake and runs the Courtesy Boat Inspection (CBI) program to ensure that invasives of all kinds do not enter Panther Pond, Crescent Lake, Thomas Pond, and Sebago Lake (via the Raymond boat ramp).


RWPA is seeking a capable individual with a commitment to preventing the spread of invasive species in our lakes to head its CBI program for the 2024 boating season. The candidate should have experience training and overseeing entry-level staff, working with mobile applications, and communicating program issues and status information to a board of directors. Previous experience with a CBI program is a plus!

Fiber Survey

The Town of Raymond needs your input!


Take the Internet Demand Survey Here


For the past several years, the town has been involved with a regional broadband committee with the goals of bringing fast, reliable, and futureproof internet to the region. Many homes and business have no internet connectivity, and most that do must rely on service that may be unreliable or does not serve current needs.


We are working with Sebago Fiber, a local internet service provider, to bring fast, reliable fiber internet to homes and businesses in our community. The first step is for residents and businesses to fill out the demand survey. Areas with the most demand will be built first, so be sure to let us know if you’re interested in service by filling out the survey. Questions can be emailed to

State of Maine Property Tax Stabilization Program Repeal

LD 290 “Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens” Repealed by State Legislature;


The LD 290 “Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens” program, or “Senior Tax Freeze Program”, enacted in August 2022, has been repealed by the Maine State Legislature.

Although the program has been repealed, if you applied and were approved, your initial application will still be implemented this year for the upcoming Tax Commitment in September 2023. This year’s tax bill on qualifying property will be “frozen” at 2022 levels, with the State contributing any additional tax that would have been assessed. The program will be discontinued for next year’s tax bill cycle (2024-2025) and all property will be assessed at whatever tax rate is calculated for that year.

The repeal of this program means there will be no reapplication process and no need to follow-up with the Assessing Department in late September/October, as previously thought.

Two existing State programs benefiting low-income seniors to be expanded;

In the coming months, as applications and guidance is released by Maine Revenue Services, more information explaining these programs and the process by which to apply.

1. The Property Tax Fairness Credit, which currently allows eligible Mainers to take a $1,500 credit, has increased to $2,000; it also loosens limits on the program in a way that allows the benefits to remain constant for a Mainer whose spouse passes away. Note: This program is not administered by the Town of Raymond; to claim the credit, you must file Form 1040ME and Schedule PTFC/STFC for the tax year during which the property tax or rent was paid.  For help, call 207-624-9784. For more info, visit:

2. The State Property Tax Deferral Program, a lifeline loan program that covers the annual property tax bills of Maine seniors age 65 and older who cannot afford to pay them on their own, has been expanded. It doubles the income limit on that program to $80,000 and also raises asset limits. Taxes must be paid back when the home is sold or becomes part of an estate. Note: This program is administered by the State; however, applications must be filed with the Raymond Assessor's Office between January 1 and April 1 each year. Applications are forwarded by the Town to Maine Revenue Services who review and make the determination for acceptance and approval.

Questions can be referred to Maine Revenue Services, Property Tax Division, at 207-624-5600
