Subject:
Public hearing on an ordinance to adopt the maximum levels of income and expenses for the General Assistance program, Chapter 6, Article 6, Section 6.68, Appendices A-C of the Falmouth Town Ordinance.

ACTION: Schedule an order
Summary:
General Assistance Maximums are outlined in Chapter 6, Section 6.68, Appendices A-H of the Falmouth Town Ordinance. Appendices A, B, and C outline the overall maximums, food maximums, and housing maximums respectively. These levels are established as a matter of state law based on certain federal values that are made effective on the first day of October each year and therefore must be adopted by the Town Council annually.

The maximum levels have not changed from the update that the Council adopted in July of this year, however, staff have been advised by Maine Municipal Association that formal action by the Council is still required to adopt the maximums for next year.

Please find attached an introduction letter, the maximums summary sheet, and the adoption form.
