The May Planning Board is cancelled due to lack of an agenda.
Next meeting is June 14th.

Due to the required trainings, the office will be unable to complete vehicle registrations after 3 pm on Monday and Wednesdays. We are hoping this will be a short term situation, until otherwise noted plan your trips accordingly.
