Effective August 9, 2021: the Town will be reinstituting an indoor mask requirement for all town facilities starting Monday, August 9, 2021. This mask policy will apply to all Town employees and members of the public regardless of vaccination status. 

Town Campus offices will be open to the general public for normal business hours Monday through Friday. Appointments for most services will no longer be required. We still strongly encourage residents to access departmental online services as much as possible in lieu of visiting Town Hall, and to continue to use available drop boxes located across from the Police Department. Please note that social distancing measures will be in place, and masks will be required in all town buildings.
