The Town Offices are located in the Old Brick Schoolhouse, in the center of the Village. This was active as a school until 1946. It has been retrofitted to accommodate the modern day needs of small town government, but still holds considerable charm within. The Selectmen, Town Clerk, and Town Administrator all conduct their business here, as do other town boards unless a public hearing requires the larger space of the Town Hall next door.
Please click on the appropriate links to the right for more information about individual town boards.
Edie Drinkwater is the town’s executive administrative assistant. She can answer any questions you might have about how the town office works, and she can provide information about building permits, and other items requiring town interaction or approval.
