The Town Clerk’s Office is responsible for recording, maintaining and preserving land records, maps, vital statistics and other municipal records, including meeting minutes of all official boards, commissions and committees, for access by the public.

             If support is needed for the online system please call 1-888-608-1808.



Reminder: Dogs, six months or older, must be licensed on or before June 30, 2018. Owners wishing to avoid waiting in line at the office are encouraged to renew by mail. Registrations sent in early for this year are welcome but will not be processed until June first.

          Neutered male or spayed female dogs $8.00
