Dog licenses are issued at the Town Office.  They must be done before January 31 of every year or there will be a $25 late fee.  You need proof of rabies shot.  For first time registrations, you will also need the spay or neutering certificate.
If your dog is not registered, the Animal Control Officer is very aggressive and will do his job.  For further details, see the "Licenses" link on the front page.

 How and when do I get billed for sewer usage?

Sewer bills are mailed quarterly and are based on the previous quarter's water usage amount from your Water District bill.  For example, your September sewer bill uses your June water bill volumes.  There is a $5.00 late charge per quarter if not paid after 30 days. 

 

The rate in Randolph is $5.00 per one hundred cubic feet of water (748 gallons).  All funds stay in Randolph and go toward maintaining the Town's sewer system and pump station.
