Town Hall open to public by appointment only

COVID-19 Virus 2020


Updated 09/17/2020

Due to the COVID-19 closure of the Recycling Center Bottle Shed, the town's Bottle Shed Committee will not be soliciting applications for a share of the proceeds this fall.

The Recycling Center will resume collecting fees for disposal of applicable items beginning Sept. 8, 2020. Social-distancing protocols will be observed. [news article]. Disposal fees were suspended in March to minimize contact at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, the Swap Shop and Bottle Shed will remain closed until further notice.

Tax bills for FY2021 have been mailed and may be viewed and paid online. Instead of coming to the town office to make an in-person payment, please make your tax payment using our online service, your bank's bill-pay service, mail, or use the new drop box in front of the town office. [news article]
