Important Census Update
For homes that may be used part-time or seasonally by the owners...each household is expected to respond to the census, whether used part-time or full-time. If an address within our community does not respond because the owner responded at their main residence in another town, the household used part-time in our municipality will go down as a non-response, causing our overall response rate to be artificially low. Owners of part-time residences should still respond for their part-time home. View instructions for responding 

Municipal Court Sessions Cancelled
During the COVID-19 pandemic, municipal courts have cancelled their in-person court sessions. With the use of technology, certain cases may be able to be heard and adjudicated remotely. It is advised that you contact the court to set up a video court proceeding and provide your telephone and e-mail address.
