Annual Town Census: 2014 Census has been mailed. Please make changes where necessary, sign and return as soon as possible. There is a dog license renewal form on the back with directions. If you did not receive a form or have any questions, please call the Town Clerk’s Office at 508-758-4103 ext. 2
Mooring Inspections: If your mooring number is 500 or above you will need to file a new or updated mooring inspection form with this office before payment will be accepted for the 2014 season. Be sure you have filled in the boat description also before returning the form. A letter was sent out the beginning of August to allow you sufficient time to have your mooring inspected and upgraded if necessary before the 2014 billing season. Any questions regarding this process should be directed to the Town Clerk’s office at 508-758-4103 ext. 2.
Please Note- Per The Harbormaster: Beginning this year, we will no longer accept “self-inspection” of moorings. Mooring inspections must be done by inspectors that have been accepted as qualified by the Mattapoisett Harbormaster’s Office. The list of qualified inspectors will be available on the Harbormaster’s portion of the town website.
