Checking in..

I just want to take a moment to say I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe at home. These are tough times we are living in, but I believe we will get through this as a community. The Town Office has remained open, but with no foot traffic. Our hours have remained the same with the exception of Saturdays, once we reopen to the public we will be open again on Saturday’s. Most things you need done such as registering vehicles, licensing boats, atvs.. etc, does not need to be done now. The Governor has given 30 days after the State of Emergency ends to do these things. However, if you do want them done now, please call the office and we will advise you on how we can take care of your needs. Also, if you are in need of a RFID tag or trash bags for the China transfer station or anything else, please call the office. 

I also would like to say if you are lonely and just need someone to talk to, call us we will listen, please don’t go through your day thinking you have no one to talk to....maybe new friends will be established!

As a community let’s get through this together, people routines have been disrupted and tempers are getting short so let’s just be kind to one another. 

Reach out to us, we are here to help in anyway we can.

We got this Palermo!
