town-seal-smallAnnual Town Meeting

The Annual Town Meeting will be held Monday, May 1, 2017 at 7:00 PM in the Alan Mudge Auditorium in Dover-Sherborn Regional High School. The Town Clerk will be open from 9am to 8pm on the last day to register to vote, April 11.

The Town Clerk would like to remind Dover registered voters that the order in which the Articles will be taken up at Town  Meeting on May 1 has changed. After Article 5, Town Meeting will take up Articles 12, and then 19 – 22, and then return to Article 6. Please remember to bring your Blue Books to Town Meeting!

The meeting will be conducted using electronic keypads for voting purposes. The keypads will be issued for specific areas (i.e., auditorium, cafeteria or gym), and must be used in those areas in order to work. As registered voters check in to attend the meeting, they will be handed a “clicker” and told what room they will be in.

The Norfolk County Mosquito Control District will be conducting aerial larval control helicopter applications for 2 to 4 days; tentatively beginning on Monday, April 24 through Friday, April 28, 2017 (weather permitting).  These applications are not ‘sprays’, but instead are granular applications of a biological larvicide applied to wetlands only.

Below is the link for property owners who wish to exempt their property from wide area pesticide applications for this year.

town-cleanupThe 2017 Great Dover Cleanup is May 6th!

Once a year we all work together to collect the trash scatted along our roads over the winter months. In addition to cleaning our own property we need to collaborate 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 one of these areas.

Cleanup can happen anytime this Spring, however official “caution signs” will be put up along the roads in Dover Saturday May 6th. 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 May 6. Trash and Recycling Bags can be left along the roads for pickup, but volunteers are encouraged to bring them to the Transfer Station on May 6.
