Dog Licenses are due by April 1st. A current rabies certificate is required. If you are unsure if the current certificate is on file, please call the Town Office. For your convenience, you may mail or drop off the fee and rabies certificate along with a self-addressed stamped envelope and your license will be mailed to you.
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.
Vital Records – Certified Copies
Certified copies of birth, death and civil marriage licenses are obtained from the Town Clerk’s Office in which they are filed. In some cases, such as births, the record can be found in the town where the hospital is located in addition to the town in which the parents lived at the time of birth, and, for marriages, in the town in which one of the parties resided if different from the other party (e.g. Party A lived in Westford and party B lived in Colchester – the record would be filed in both towns).
An application and a $10 fee per certified copy is required before a request can be filled.
