Town Building Re-Opened

Town Hall, the Community Center, Police Station & Fire Department are now open to the public but with certain limitations. For example, in all our buildings we request that you wear a mask unless you have a medical condition plus maintain social distancing. Additionally, there is a series of questions which we request you to answer before going to any office. If you answer yes to any of the questions then we request you to leave and call us to attain service.
However, we understand that some of you may still be reluctant to enter a Town building. Therefore, as we have done throughout the closure, we will continue to have drop-off boxes outside of Town Hall and be available for appointments. We still encourage residents to take advantage of whatever services can be performed via regular mail, email, or electronically to prevent lines.
