In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Town buildings will be closed to the public until April 6 or until further notice.   Town staff will remain available to assist citizens by phone, e-mail, U.S. Postal Service, and by appointment as warranted with preventive protocols in place.  

Meetings of all boards are to either be canceled until further notice or be held in the downstairs meeting room through virtual methods in accordance with the Open Meeting Law.


Office staff will be working behind closed doors during this time to ensure vital functions of the Town can occur.
