The LOCKED drop box outside of the Municipal Building front doors on the left can be used 24/7 to drop off applications, tax payments, license renewals, and the like.
Children and adults who wish to participate in the annual Christmas Ornament Contest, may call the Municipal Building and one of the staff will meet you outside to obtain your ornament for placement on the tree. We will follow the same protocol for those wanting to donate toys for the Toys for Tots program we are supporting as well.
We are very hopeful that things will get better soon and this will be a short term closure.
