From the Town Clerk…

By the time you are receiving this copy of the Bellingham Bulletin, everyone should have received your annual municipal census forms in the mail. Please fill out the census form and return it to the Town Clerk’s office as soon as possible. If you have not received a census form, please contact my office at (508) 657-2830. Included with the census forms is a dog license application. If you do not have a dog, please recycle the form. If you do have a dog(s), kindly fill out the form and return it to the Town Clerk’s office, along with proof of current rabies certification from your veterinarian. Both the census form and the dog application with rabies certificate may be returned via mail, in-person, or by placement in the blue drop box outside the front entrance of the Municipal Center. You may also apply for your dog license online by going to the Town website and clicking “Online Transactions”. Once processed, dog licenses will be mailed to you. Please remember that 2022 dog licenses will expire on March 31, 2023. Application and payment for 2023 dog licenses are due by April 1st. In accordance with a new Town Bylaw, there is a one-month grace period before a late fee of $25 per household will be assessed. Beginning in June, a one-time $50 fine will be levied, followed by referral to the magistrate of Milford District Court. So please apply for your dog license when you fill out your census to avoid any late charge or fine!
