Town Clerk, Denise Graffeo, would like to remind residents about the importance of returning the Annual Town Census form to the Town Clerk’s Office, as soon as possible. Graffeo explains that a prompt and accurate census is very important. Your cooperation in returning the census as soon as
possible will prevent us from having to do another costly mailing. If you are a new resident or if you do not receive a census form, please notify the Town Clerk’s Office by phone at 978-640-4355 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
