Policies extended as a result of the stay at home order include:
- In-person payment for utility accounts will not be accepted at town hall. Residents are encouraged to set up automatic withdrawal payments by emailing Karen Heim at email@example.com, making a one-time payment online at paygov.us , by mail to 200 E Washington Street, or by using the utilities drop box, located in the police lobby. Golf cart registrations will be processed in the same manner, by email, mail, or drop off in the utilities drop box in the police lobby.

- All non-essential town and park events scheduled through May 3rd are cancelled at this time. Town officials will continue to work with other community health stakeholders in our area to determine best policies for the safety of our community over the coming days and weeks and will review and update policies as necessary.
