It is necessary to come to the Town Hall for the initial Resident sticker or when there is a difference in the vehicle or owner from the initial application.
The Town has the motor vehicle registration, license and tax databases to validate the information for a match for registered vehicles. If there is not a match it will be necessary to come to the Town Hall for your sticker. Please understand our databases are not updated by the State on a daily basis and so while you may truly be a “resident”, if there’s no “match” we must ask you to come to the Town Hall.
