Dog License Reminder

E-mail Print

Reminder to dog owners: A large number of people have failed to license their dogs this year. Not only is licensing good for the town and for your dog, it is also required by State law. Please take the necessary steps to obtain your dog license. In the near future, the Dog Officer will be providing the Selectboard with a list of those who are still not in compliance so that further action can be taken. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.
