This Thursday (5/13) Town Hall will open early at 11:00am and stay open until 6:00pm. This Friday (5/14) Town Hall will open at 8:00am and close early at 11:00am. Next week (5/17-5/21) we will return to the current operating hours: Monday 8:00am to 1:00pm, Thursday 1:00pm to 6:00pm, and Friday 8:00am to 1:00pm.


Town Hall will be closed on Thursday, May 6th due to preparations that need to take place for the Town Deliberative Session, which will begin at 6:00pm in the main hall of the American Legion.
Please come to the American Legion at 551 Foundry Street at this time to take part in this important town event.


Many residents have received or will soon receive a Mail-in Dog License renewal form. The fee structure listed on that form already includes the $0.75 special postage fee. For example, a 2021 license for one altered (spayed/neutered) dog costs $7.50, plus the $0.75 for special postage. Therefore, if you’re renewing by mail or the drop box, you should make your check out for $8.25.
Seniors over 65 should make their checks out for $4.25 ($3.50, plus the $0.75 for special postage) for one altered dog. The senior discount does not apply to the second, third, or fourth dog.
If you have two to four dogs, you don’t have to pay any more than the $0.75 for special postage. For example, 2021 licenses for two altered (spayed/neutered) dogs cost $15.00, plus the $0.75 for special postage. Therefore, if you’re renewing by mail or the drop box, you should make your check out for $15.75.
If you choose to renew your dog’s license in person at Town Hall, then you can ignore the $0.75 special postage fee altogether.
We apologize for the confusion!

2021 Dog Licenses

Dog licenses expire on April 30th. Please feel free to come to Town Hall during our new operating hours (Mondays 8:00am to 1:00pm, Thursdays 1:00pm to 6:00pm, and Fridays 8:00am to 1:00pm) to obtain a new 2021 license or to get your dog registered for the first time. You may also renew by mail or through the drop box, but be sure to include an extra $0.75 for special postage.

Town Hall Business Procedure Update
