Dog License due date extended to April 2

Dog licenses are due every year by April 1st, which is a Sunday, so we are extending the deadline to April 2.  After that date, there is an added late fee for licensing your dog.  You will need to submit a rabies certificate showing a current vaccination, and the fees are $15 for spayed or neutered dogs and $19 for intact dogs.

Lincoln Gap Road Closed for the Winter

As of mid-October, the Lincoln Gap Road is closed for the winter.  If you choose to ignore the ROAD CLOSED signs, you probably won’t be able to get a tow truck to pull you back up the bank when you slide off into the woods.  The Warren side is darker, steeper, and icier!  Be prepared to walk home and recover your vehicle in the spring!
