In light of the COVID-19 pandemic facing our town, state and nation we are taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety and health of our community.   Our goal is to mitigate the spread of the virus and to reduce its rate of transmission. While in the town hall masks must be worn, covering the mouth and nose, for your protection and for the protection of those around you.
