The fee until April 1st is $11.00 for spayed or neutered dogs and $13.00 for dogs that are not spayed or neutered. Dog licenses obtained after April 1st are subject to a late fee. We encourage all dog owners to register their dogs before April 1st.
Civil Marriage Licenses
Vermont Civil Marriage Licenses are available at the Town Clerk’s office. If you are a resident of Vermont you must obtain your license from the Town Clerk of the town you reside in (unless you are getting married out of state). If you are from out of state and getting married in Vermont, you may obtain your license from any Vermont Town Clerk.
The fee for a license is $60.00. Licenses are valid for 60 days from the date of issue. The ceremony must be performed within this time frame or the license becomes null and void. After the ceremony, the license must be submitted to the Town Clerk’s Office within 10 days.
The application must be signed by both parties. Only one person need be present when the license is issued however we prefer both parties be present.
Please include an additional $10 with the application fee if you would like a certified copy of the license automatically mailed to you after the ceremony.
