The April 21, 2020, ATV special vote will still go on as warned, 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM at the Public Safety Building. I would ask that with the COVID-19 pandemic to please request an absentee ballot which will be available next week.  You will need to either call my office (802-433-5455 ext. 3), email (clerk@williamstownvt.org) or message me to request a ballot. There will be no voting in the office as we are closed to the public. Ballots will be mailed out once a week until the vote, with Friday, April 17th is the last day to mail ballots.  Thank you for your consideration and understanding.  Barbara Graham, Town Clerk.

Dog Licenses will be extended through May 1st.


2020 Town and School Meeting

Birth and death certificates

As of July 1, 2019, Town Clerks can no longer make birth and death certificates available from the vault (new state law). The person requesting a certified copy of either a birth or death needs to fill out an application form and show a form of ID. Follow this link to download the application. It will be a little more time consuming than before so please be patient.


Licensing your dog(s)

All dogs need to be registered by April 1st, with a current rabies certificate on file.

Please be sure to license them before 4/1/2020 so there isn’t a late fee attached to the license fee. If you have any problem getting down to the Town Hall, you can mail a check and a copy of the rabies certificate if your dog has a new one since the previous year and we will mail your tag and license to you.

The fees are:
Spayed/Neutered: Before April 1st, $10.00 – after the deadline, $14.00
Nonspayed/Neutered: Before April 1st, $14.00 – after the deadline, $18.00
If you no longer have a dog, please let us know so we can take them out of the computer.

A Rabies Clinic will be held on March 21, 2020, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Public Safety Building.
