Dog Licensing:

Dog licensing is a recurrent annual event.  The State of Vermont requires all dogs to be licensed in their town of residence.  To be registered, every dog must have a current rabies vaccination.  If you dog has a current vaccination on record, you are asked to send payment in the U.S. mail and a license will be sent in return.  Due to the  COVID-19 pandemic, if your dog is currently overdue for its next rabies vaccination, you are allowed an extension to license that particular animal.  Any animals with current vaccination records should be licensed before the April 1, 2020 deadline.

Dog Licensing Fees

Spayed/Neutered $9.00

Intact M/F $13.00

Late Licensing Fees

Spayed/Neutered $12.00

Intact M/F $18.00

Trash Bags:

Vershire residents are required to use specific green trash bags to dispose of their trash.  The bags are 33 gallon-size and are purchased from the Town Clerk during regular office hours.  Please call ahead to arrange this purchase.

Bags are $3.00 each.

Residents bring their trash bags and recycling to the Durgin Hill Fast Trash location located at 15 Durgin Hill Road every Saturday morning from 7:00am to 12:00pm.

Recycling Saturdays

Recycling consists of two separate streams: 1) mixed paper media (cardboard/office paper/junk mail), and 2) glass, metal and plastic food containers.

Starting July 1, 2020, the Durgin Hill site will also accept food scraps, as required by Vermont law and Act 149, Vermont’s Universal Recycling law.  

Please observe social distancing and wear a face mask/covering when you are there!

Office Research:

Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19, there is no “in-house” title research happening in the Vershire Town Office.  The town is not in a position to comply with the latest social distancing and cleaning requirements and guidance issued April 17 and April 24, 2020, from Governor Phil Scott and the State of Vermont.

If you have a specific request, we are available via email (clerk-treasurer@vershirevt.org) and telephone (802 685-2227) and we are happy to help in a “distanced” way.
