Verification of Checklist

Pursuant to RSA 654:39, every ten years the Board of Registrars is required to verify the checklist.  Any registered voter who has not voted in the past four years (since April 1, 2017) must re-register to vote to remain on the checklist.  The Board of Registrars is notifying these voters by sending letters to the address the voter provided at the time of registration.

Dog Licenses

City Hall is closed to the public and the City Clerk’s Office will continue to accept online, mail in requests, and drop-offs (Use the outside Drop Box on Elm Street side of building). In order for a dog to be licensed, the owner or keeper of the dog must furnish proof of a current rabies vaccination.  If the dog has been spayed or neutered, and it is not currently on file, the owner or keeper needs to provide the proper documentation in order to receive the discounted rate.   To license your dog by mail, please print off and complete the city’s Dog License Application, and return it to the City Clerk’s Office with the required documentation and fee.  

If you wish to register your dog online, please click on the icon.

Please note there is a transaction fee and convenience fee associated with the online service. The cost of a dog license is as follows:

  • Puppy (ages 4-7 months) - $7.50 
  • Spayed or neutered dogs - $7.50
  • Unaltered female or male dogs - $10
  • Senior citizen dog - $3.00 (owner who is 65 years old or older on the first dog only)

If you did not license your dog for the 2020-2021 licensing year, you will be responsible for bringing your account current by paying for a license for 2020-2021, as well as late fees ($1.00 per month from June forward) and $7 cost of service fee.  Citizens may verify their dog information on file by emailing or by calling 589-3010, option 5.
