Each year an annual street listing is conducted by the Board of Registrars as mandated by state law. In addition, the Board prepares the list of students in the local and private schools for the school department.
Each census computer sheet lists all residents at the home, noting birth dates, occupations, school data, and veteran status. Residents are asked to verify and/or correct the information.
New residents or members of any household that have not received a form must notify the Town Clerk’s Office by calling 508-651-7853 or visiting our office at the Town Hall, 19 Washington Street. The office is open Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. - 12 p.m.
The census data is essential to update voting, street, and dog lists, to provide information to local and regional school committees, to aid the police, fire, and rescue departments, and to provide information for governmental agencies for various reimbursements to the town and special benefits to individuals.
