2019 Dog Licensing Information-
On 10/15/2018, you can begin to register your dog(s) for the 2019 year. If you still have not licensed for 2018, we can require you to license for both years, and pay the late fee of $25.00 for 2018. All licenses expire 12/31. Late fees for 2019 will begin on 2/1/2019.
To license your dog, you will need the current rabies certificate, spay/neuter papers, and method of payment. Licensing can be done via mail, online (click the dog on the homepage to be directed), in person, or dropping the paperwork off in the mail box just outside the front door. A dog that has been fixed, is $6.00, and a un-altered dog is $11.00.

This is my son's dog, Encie- a rare moment of good behavior!! (at the groomer of all places!) She is a goldendoodle; 75% Poodle, 25% Golden Retriever, though I am sure she takes after the poodle side much more!
POLICY FOR PAYMENTS ON DELINQUENT TAX ACCOUNTS
The Board of Selectmen have instituted a new policy for the acceptance of all tax lien and tax foreclosure accounts. If you have a lien, lien notice, or foreclosure notice sent to you, all payments for those accounts must be made by a certified bank check, cash, or debit/credit card. No personal checks will be accepted.
If you are unsure if this applies to you, please give us a call and we will assist you with your payment options.
