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.
