We have opened the Town Hall doors to citizens and vendors who have to come in to conduct their business. We are still encouraging Citizens to handle water payments, zoning permit purchases and other business that they can handle over the phone, by mail, email, and online to do so.  Any meetings of the Town Council or Planning Board will continue to be held virtually because the social distancing order is still in place and indoor gatherings are still limited to no more than 10 people. The Town Park is still open for walking, riding bikes, however no organized team sports are allowed at this time. The playground equipment will remain closed until the Governor lifts the order that closed playgrounds. ######################################################################################################
