The Town Clerk Staff is here to assist you with voter information and registration, information concerning vital records, filing intentions for Marriage Licenses, filing Business Certificates, filing Special Permits, etc., registering dogs, census information and many other ways we can provide assistance.
Annual Street Listing
All residents must sign and return the Annual Street Listing (Census) which is mailed to every household in January each year. Failure to respond to this mailing shall result in removal from the active voting list and may result in removal from the voter registration rolls as required by Massachusetts General Laws. If you have not yet completed your census, or if you need a replacement copy, please stop by or call our office.
All dog licenses expire on December 31st each year and are due for renewal on January 1st. After March 31st there is a $25 late fee imposed for all unlicensed dogs in addition to the regular license fee.
Our hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM, Tuesday 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM, Friday 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM but subject to change during the summer each year.
