The 2016 Census Forms were mailed to each household the first of January and residents are urged to review, update, sign and return them as soon as possible if they have not already done so. Even if there were no changes, we still need them to be returned. All occupants, including children, should be listed, although information obtained for residents under age 17 remains confidential.
Forms can be mailed to Town Clerk, 346 Bedford Street or put into the drop box outside the Town Office Building.
Any resident who did not receive a census form, or who might need another one, should call Town Clerk’s office 946-8800.
Town census is important for many reasons. First and foremost, it establishes legal residence for voting privileges and town benefits. It is also the vehicle by which annual street lists are printed for distribution to police, fire and medical personnel. It is the census figures that are used to determine grants or to receive state and federal reimbursements and aide. School enrollments are also based on town census.
Please make sure you and your families are counted.
