Town Office(s) Response to COVID19


March 16, 2020

Residents and Visitors of New Durham,

With the President’s declaration of a National Emergency and the Governor’s declaration of a State of Emergency regarding the COVID 19 Cornonavirus pandemic on Friday, March 13, 2020. This world health crisis has activated our emergency management planning for the protection and wellness of our residents, visitors and most importantly the Town employees.  The emergency management team has been meeting weekly over the past 2 weeks and we continue to monitor national and state emergency management communications.  Our first responders have instituted policies for the response to emergencies and non-emergency calls for service. 

These front line responders must take extra precautions to limit their exposure, and we would like to ask our residents and visitors to assist us in helping to limit risk exposure to our Town employees.  We would ask residents and visitors to limit their personal contact with all Town employees in all departments.  Residents are encouraged to utilize electronic, telephone or written communications.  These methods can be used for renewals of Motor Vehicle Registrations, Dog License, Vital Records and Tax payments can be made via  Or the Town Hall drop box located to the right side of the Town Hall front door, which is checked daily Monday thru Friday, or by US Mail.  Permits and Fees (i.e. Building permits or Facility use Decals) can also be obtained via electronic submission and payments can be received via the drop box or US Mail.

With your help we can help keep this virus under control and our employees well and ready to serve you.

If you have any questions or need assistance in navigating these new communication methods, please contact us at 859-2091.
