INLAND FISHERIES AND WILDLIFE:
Same steps as above. For boats, indicate if boat will be used just in salt water, just fresh, or both salt and fresh water. Boats expire December 31st each year. ATVs expire June 30th each year. If you renew your ATV now it will expire 6/30/2020, then will need to be renewed in June for a 2021 expiration. New stickers will be available for sale as of May 1st, 2020 for the 2021 expiration.
Our office accepts only cash or checks. Please do not come into the office with your registration without following the steps above. We need to limit the amount of contact and handling that is done for the transaction. This process has been working great.
If you are not able to send new registrations electronically, you may mail your documents to the town office with your contact information. Or per guidelines issued by Governor Mills, all expired renewal or temporary registrations that occur during Covid 19 restrictions are extended and excused until 30 days after the end of the state timeline. For private sales, you may request a copy of the state-issued excused letter.
