CURRENT DEPARTMENTAL OPERATIONS
We are currently experiencing staffing challenges for licensed building officials. As a result, we have employed temporary assistance from officials from other communities while we work to fill open positions.

Permit applications and other correspondence for the Building Department may be dropped off at Town Hall during normal business hours, or 24x7 in the Town Hall Drop Box located in the lobby of the Police Department.
