Lewiston reminds residents city business can be done from home

LEWISTON — The city government is reminding Lewiston residents that there are time-saving ways to do city business that don’t involve a personal visit to City Hall.
Per CDC guidelines, a limited number of people are allowed in City Hall at any one time, which results in lines and significant wait time.
Examples of what can be done online are:
* Request an absentee ballot;
* Re-register a vehicle (no registration quotes given over the phone);
* View property tax records;
* Pay utility and other city-related bills;
* Reach city staff by email at www.lewistonmaine.gov/staff;
* Reach city staff by phone at 207-513-3000 (Leave a voice mail if no answer; staff is most likely waiting on a resident at a counter window);
* Mail items to Lewiston City Hall, 27 Pine St., Lewiston, ME 04240 (note department if you know which it is);
* Use the drop box on the Park Street Side of City Hall: For water bill & tax payments; all applications; birth certificate orders, etc.;
* Use the fax machine at 207-784-2959.
