Welcome to the Town of Jackson, Waldo County, Maine, USA. Settled in 1798 and incorporated on June 12, 1812, Jackson is a small town of about 548 people. Here you can find useful information like upcoming events, phone numbers, and town office hours.


We are going to shut down the swap shop and the recycle side due to Unity Area Recycling being closed and we will not be taking returnable bottles. Bagged trash is still accepted but please maintain social distancing when depositing your trash in the dumpsters.

At this time the office will remain open but only 1 person will be allowed in at a time.  If a person just has questions please call instead of stopping in.

The Jackson Town Meeting previously posted for March 21st has been postponed until further notice.

Selectmen’s meetings will be canceled until further notice.  The selectmen will be in to sign warrants so that bills can still be paid. The Maine Legislature has enacted LD 2167 which provides that in the event that Town meetings are postponed municipalities are allowed to continue to fund government operations at the budget levels approved for the previous year and allows the treasurer to disburse funds on the authority of a warrant signed by the selectmen outside of a public meeting.

Due to the coronavirus concerns all events  at the Jackson Library have been postponed and the Library will be closed until further notice. The key at the town office will not be available during the Library closure period and  the Library will not be open on Sunday during the transfer station hours. The Library board is sorry for the inconvenience.

The monthly meetings of the Jackson Planning Board will be postponed until further notice. If you have a need to address the Board please contact Jackson Town Clerk Brenda Dennison at 207-722-3439.
