Rest in Peace – Chief Leeman

It is with heavy hearts that the Bremen Board of Selectmen and members of the Town Office announce the passing of Donald “Donnie” Leeman, the town’s Fire Chief. Donnie was a friend to all and an incredible leader for the Bremen Fire Department and the Town of Bremen. Donnie guided our town through the COVID-19 pandemic while maintaining a cohesive team of responders. He worked with other towns to strengthen our commitments for mutual aid. In all ways, Donnie was a consummate professional. We send our deepest sympathies to his family and co-workers.  

A Memorial Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 1st at Lincoln Academy in Newcastle.

Special Notice

The Bremen Town Office will be closed Tuesday, October 11th, and Wednesday, October 12th, for mandatory staff training in Augusta. We ask all residents to please plan accordingly.

The following is offered as a friendly reminder to all Bremen residents who are contemplating any construction-related activity on their property including but not limited to new construction, expansion, relocation, replacement, demolition, clearing, change of use, and road building.  Under those circumstances, residents should do the following to see what is allowed, what ordinances apply, and what might require a permit:

  • Consult the appropriate Town ordinances, which are on the Town’s website.
  • Consult the Town Code Enforcement Officer; the Town office can supply contact information.

The following options also are available:

  • Apply for an informal, non-binding pre-application conference with the Planning Board.

In sum, the Town and its staff stand ready to help residents through any construction-related activity.  Prospective applicants must take the first step to consult the appropriate ordinance before construction begins.  After-the-fact permits are not automatically granted and are very expensive to acquire.  If an after-the-fact permit is not granted and a violation has occurred, the applicant may be required to undo what has been done at his or her expense.

Thank you.
