From the Town Clerk


Hello All ~ Happy New Year ~ I wish you all a safe, HEALTHY, happy, peaceful, and prosperous New Year.  By now you should have received your 2022 Annual Census forms.  If you did not receive your 2022 census during the first week of January, please contact the Town Clerk’s Office (508) 252-6502 x-3109, 3112 or 3110.  The 2022 census mailing includes a 2022 town calendar and town services directory.  This is the ninth year the Clerk’s Office has provided a calendar in the census mailer.  Over the past few years, we have received many compliments on how helpful the calendar has been during the year.  In fact, residents have already called our office to see if the 2022 calendar was available yet.   If you would like another copy of the calendar, please let us know; we will gladly share an extra copy, while supplies last.  Thank you all for your kind comments and appreciation of the yearly town calendar.  We hope you find the 2022 Town calendar addition to your census mailing a beneficial and time saving tool ~ Happy New Year and thank you for sending your completed census forms back to us as soon as possible!  Due date is January 31st ~ thank you!

Continuing my goal of making town government more accessible to the residents, it is my hope that the calendar provides you with key information right at your fingertips.  You will note, the calendar signals residents of upcoming due dates such as real estate tax payments, census forms, and dog license renewals, tentative rabies clinic date (depending on the pandemic situation), which are highlighted in green; upcoming election and town meeting dates, which are highlighted in blue, and town department holidays that are bolded in red (whole day) and purple (half day).  On the reverse side of the calendar, you will also find a directory of the Town of Rehoboth’s departments, employees, and phone numbers. Also, included on the directory side of the calendar, you will find information and websites, which residents may find useful such as transfer station hours, burning permit information, school and library phone numbers, etc. 

This year’s calendar features Rehoboth’s New Town Hall located at 340 Anawan Street (Route 118).  It is the beautiful brick building next to the Police and Fire station and across from the Highway Department.  As the description on the 2022 Calendar reads, the 148 Peck Street Town Hall was our home for 50 years.  We look forward to another 50 years or more at the 340 Anawan Street location.   We have a lot of people to thank for our new Town Hall.  First, Steve Dorrance for building an amazing building.  Steve’s attention to detail, such as beautiful trim and finish work along with a structurally sound building construction, is a welcomed benefit to the Town of Rehoboth.  Thank you to the previous and current Board of Selectmen; especially Dave Perry who oversaw the entire 340 Anawan Street project.  Thank You ~ Priscilla & Earle Dias, son David and the entire staff of Earle Dias Interiors who installed throughout the entire building the beautiful flooring, which will be able to be easily maintained, is durable, and mold resistant.  David, you really touched us all with your dedication and attention to detail with this project.  You continued Steve Dorrance’s vision ~ thank you all.  Speaking of attention to detail and superior craftsmanship, thank you Jared Levesque and Josh Arruda of Full Scope Contractors for making the offices flow better by removing walls, building walls in other areas and creating service windows that are more handicapped accessible and safe for our employees and residents along with installing various virus mitigating devices such as touchless entry and exits and protective windows.  Thank you also, Mike Berwick of Berwick Electric, for running the many electrical and IT drops, Derek Rousseau, IT Director, for getting fiber to the building and to every computer, phone, printer and for moving all our computers, printers, and scanners on a Town Holiday, so we were set up and ready to move in on Monday, December 27th.  Thank you, Jason Sidok and staff of Home and Commercial Security, Aaron and staff of M&S Cleaners, and Al’s Quality Oil and staff for your part in making our building safe, secure, clean and warm.  Thank you, Mike Costello and the Highway/Maintenance staff, for the many projects you were involved with both at 340 Anawan, Francis Farm Community Center, Police, Fire and Ambulance.  Thank you also for your assistance with our move to 340 Anawan on December 27th.  Speaking of the move, thank you “Two Men and a Truck” for the excellent move from 148 Peck Street to 340 Anawan.  It was a pleasure working with the twelve men and four trucks
