Town census is underway

Continue reading below

The 2014 annual town census forms were mailed Jan. 11. The census mailing also included an application for permits for the town’s transfer station. Residents are encouraged to complete and return their census forms by Feb. 15. State law mandates that every municipality complete an annual census during January, so the census form should be signed and returned even if no changes are necessary. Information on the census form is used to aid in projecting school enrollments, protect veterans’ and elderly housing benefits, and maintain a current voting list. The annual town election is scheduled for April 1. To remain on the active voter list for the local election, the census form must be returned. To make the process as convenient as possible, return envelopes were provided. Residents may mail their census form back to the town clerk’s office using the envelope provided or drop the form off in a red census box at Town Hall or the public library. For more information, contact the town clerk’s office at 781-721-7130.
