We WILL be returning all calls this week. Thank you for your patience. Marisa & Missy. As we get into the next few weeks at the Town Clerks office, we will be having some work repaired-I do not know all the details but will keep you updated 

DOGS UPDATE: This is to let you know, some dog(s) have not been renewed/licensed for 2021 yet. It may have slipped your mind as notices were not sent out since 2019 and 2020 was a crazy year. DOG License Renewals are due by April 30 each year. You can register as EARLY as January 1 of current year. This is a courtesy reminder for you to get your new tag from the Town Clerks Office. My list  will be handed to the Board of Selectmen at their next meeting. PLEASE come in to renew and don’t get the $25.00 per dog fine!  We cannot renew your license if *“RABIES HAS EXPIRED”     If the rabies **“HAS NOT EXPIRED”, please come in to get your tag.   *if rabies has expired you will get a Civil Forfeiture   **If rabies has not expired but don’t have a 2021 tag you will get a Civil Forfeiture
