To: The Residents of Vienna
From: The Board of Selectmen Re: Town Meeting 2021
In order to be compliant with the current guidelines regarding COVID safety, we are finding it necessary to conduct our Annual Town Meeting in a different way this year. There will be no in-person meeting on the usual second Saturday of March. Instead, and after consultation with the Maine Municipal Association, things will proceed as follows:
1. The regular election WILL BE HELD on Friday, March 12, 2021 from noon to 8 p.m. at the Community Room on Kimball Pond Rd. Masking and social distancing will be required. Please wait in your car if it appears that the voting booths are full. We will be voting on elected positions as well as all articles usually enacted at town meeting.
Expanding and Improving Internet Access for residents of Fayette, Leeds, MountVernon, Readfield, Vienna, and Wayne
For almost two (2) years, the WKLCBA has been researching and studying ways to provide the rural communities of Fayette, Leeds, Mount Vernon, Readfield, Wayne, and Vienna with Broadband Internet access for all business, residents, and community members. This effort was supported by Casco Bay Advisors (a technical consultant) and included consultation with a variety of other communities, non-profits, and technical personnel.
Vienna (Vy-enna) a town in Kennebec County was settled in 1786 and incorporated on February 20, 1802 from portions of Goshen and Wyman's plantations. The community was named for what is now Vienna, Austria. (see History of Vienna).
Small, quiet and picturesque, Vienna is located on the northwesterly corner of Kennebec County, 22 miles northwest of Augusta the state capital and just 12 miles down Rt. 41 from Farmington the Franklin County seat.
Vienna lies within the foothills of the western Maine mountains. On a clear day McGaffey Mountain — the highest point in Kennebec County—which is located in Vienna, provides views of Mount Washington, Mount Blue, the Camden Hills and Mount Katahdin.

From Dan Onion:
Folks could you help us find a replacement for several of our coordinator jobs, all of which Irene Goff did easily, to help Mary Beth Paquette, our manager for the past 1.5 yr, now covering all duties as Irene retires completely Dec 1. We are slowing down greatly because of covid but want to get someone trained up while things are quiet for, we are hoping, spring breakout from covid. See attached job description here
