town_sealAnnual Town Census and Dog Licensing

The Dover Town Clerk would like to remind all residents that the Annual Town Census was sent out in the beginning of January, and was due back ten days from receipt.  Please send your signed forms back now!  If you cannot find your form, please call the Town Clerk’s office to request another one.

Dog licensing forms were also mailed at the beginning of January.  2017 dog licenses expired on March 1st.  Licenses renewed after April 15th will incur a $25 late fee in addition to the licensing fee.  In order to license your dog, you must have an up-to-date rabies certificate.  You can license your dog by mail, or by coming into the Town Clerk’s office.

town-cleanupThe 2018 Great Dover Cleanup is April 28th !

As we did last year,  the Dover Recycling Committee will team up with towns across the state on Saturday, April 28th for the Great Massachusetts Cleanup. Once a year friends and neighbors  work together to collect the trash scattered along our roads over the winter months. In addition to cleaning our own property we need collaborative efforts to cleanup  heavily travelled streets that gather the most trash. We hope that you will join us in signing up to collect the trash from these areas. We are looking for Cleanup Captains for each neighborhood as well as volunteers to clean-up. Captains are expected to reach out to neighbors to encourage them to sign up as well as distribute collection bags to volunteers.

Cleanup can happen anytime this Spring, however official “caution signs” will be put up along the roads in Dover on Saturday, April 28th. Trash and Recycling Bags can be picked up at the front desk of the Dover Town Garage, 2 Dedham St. any afternoon M-F in advance of April 28 and can be left along the roads for pickup. But, volunteers are encouraged to bring them to the Transfer Station on April 28. Recycling Committee members will be at the Transfer Station to help sort the recyclables you pick up.

Please sign up here to adopt a street or be a captain: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0f44abac2aa20-the2018
