Town Hall Reservations
Although Town Hall is open to the public, reservations are strongly encouraged. You can make a reservation up to seven days in advance with the Town Clerk/Receiver of Taxes, Justice Court, the Assessor, Recreation and Parks, and the Building and Development Department. Reservations will be given priority over residents who just walk into Town Hall for transactions.
For the convenience and safety of our residents and staff, most of our transactions can be completed via mail, email, by calling us, or using this website.
Town Clerk/Receiver of Taxes Appointments
We strongly advise our residents to continue to use the drop box on the first floor of town hall as well as the United States Postal Service for payment of taxes. We continue to hold post-dated checks and can email tax receipts to you upon request. Our on-line ACH tax payment system is also available without charge through our website. Credit card payments are also accepted with a service fee.
