Why do I have to return the local census? Nothing’s changed from last year!
Even if nothing has changed in your household since last year, we still need to know you live in town—especially if you are a voter! Massachusetts state law requires that each community conduct an annual census to update their voter’s lists and to provide accurate information for the Jury Commissioner. The census information is also used by other city agencies, including the School Department. From the census we are required by state law to publish a “street listing”. Only certain people (certain public safety officials, etc.) are exempt from appearing in the street listing.

Do I Need a Permit to Have a Tag Sale?

It is required to obtain a tag sale permit if you plan on having a yard, barn or tag sale.  The permit is issued through the Town Clerk’s office during her regularly scheduled hours.  The cost of the permit is $5.00 per day or $10.00 for a weekend which includes a long weekend.
