Town Attorney

Due to the coronavirus, the Town Attorney’s office is working with modified staffing but will continue to provide the same types of services. There will be someone to answer any phone calls between 8:30 am and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. We can continue to receive and process requests for film permits and drone permits.

All traffic court conferences scheduled for March 19, March 26, and April 2, 2020 will be administratively adjourned to a future date.

Given that Town Hall is closed to the public, any contracts should be mailed to Town Hall, rather than signed in-person at Town Hall.
