Report from Town Clerk

By Bonnie Wesley

Just a few things to keep you updated on what’s going at the Town Clerk’s office.
Veterans Day and Thanksgiving

The Clerk’s office will be closed on Monday, November 11, for Veterans Day.  The Selectman’s office, however, will be open. Both offices will be closed over Thanksgiving weekend, November 28, 29 and 30.  The clerk’s office will open instead on Saturday November 23 from 9 to 11 AM.
Bulletin Boards

We have rearranged the bulletin boards in the lobby area.  There are 3 boards. One for Conservation news, one for Town notices and one for Town Clerk business.  We have hung a new bulletin in the entry hallway for public notices.
Dog Licenses

Please continue to keep us updated on your dog’s status.  If you no longer have your dog, please let us know. Also, all dogs must be licensed.  The 2020 licenses will be available January 1, 2020 and are due by April 30, 2020. Late charges will be applied after that date.
Need Help with 2020 Elections

Election Year 2020 is going to be a very busy year, and we will be needing lots of help.  We will need ballot clerks for checking people in, and we will need ballot counters. If this is something you may be interested in, please let the Town Clerk’s office know.  Training will be provided. 

The four elections in 2020 are the Presidential Primary in February; Town Elections and Town Meeting in March; the General Primary in September; and the General Election in November.
Photo ID

HB 391 (261:48) became effective on June 21.  This bill requires that a current government-issued photo ID be presented to the Town Clerk to obtain a registration permit.
