Town Census and Dog Registrations

The annual town census was mailed to all households during the first week of January. Please look for this and return to the town clerk's office by the end of January. Returning the census keeps your voter status active and helps the town with statistical information as required by statute.

Annual dog registrations are due no later than Feb. 28. The dog registration fee is $10 per spayed or neutered dog, $15 for an unaltered dog. The late fee, effective March 1, is $10 per dog. Dogs can be registered at the town clerk's office, 173 Main St.

Dogs may be registered in person, by mail or online. Check out Look for the town clerk's department and select Dog Registration. The town clerk may also be reached at 978-448-1100.
