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 4/1/2021 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 May 1st, $12.00 – after the deadline, $16.00
Nonspayed/Neutered: Before May 1st, $16.00 – after the deadline, $20.00
If you no longer have a dog, please let us know so we can take them out of the computer.
