The Cabot Town Clerk’s Office remains open during normal hours Monday – Thursday, 8 am to 5 pm.  HOWEVER, that will be re-evaluated daily based on the evolving situation with COVID-19.  If you can, conduct your business with the Town Office via the phone, online, drop box or through the mail (including dog renewals), please do so.


The state has mandated that we do a trace chlorination of the water system. This will be a tiny amount and you may or may not taste it in your tap water. This will begin tomorrow, March 24th.
This is something to be aware of regarding wipes being flushed:
Please help us get the word out: DO NOT FLUSH WIPES, even if the package says “flush able.” Throw them in your trash can. Wastewater system staff have to clean them out of pumps, pipes, and screens BY HAND, increasing their risk of exposure to COVID-19, which may survive in feces for two to 14 days. Google it – disinfectant wipe clogging has become an emergency in many states.
The same is true of private septic systems. Reports from around Vermont indicate that more septic tanks are being pumped out; this waste is then taken to municipal sewer plants – which are facing a big increase in seepage and can’t handle any more! Please remind residents to flush only pee, poo, and toilet paper, for their own and the community’s health
Thank you.

Betty Ritter, Town Clerk/Treasurer

Due to many of the Rabies Clinics closing because of the Corona Virus the Town of Cabot will waive the late fee for licensing your dog until June 1, 2020.  PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DATE FOR LICENSING IS STILL DUE ON APRIL 1, 2020.  You can do this by dropping a check in the mail, or we have a drop box right outside the door that you can put your check in made out to the Town of Cabot.  We will then register your dog and send back a copy of the license and the new tag.  The fee for this is $13.00 for dogs that are not neutered or spayed and $9.00 for dogs that are spayed or neutered.  Our mailing address is P. O. Box 36.  If you need to check to see if your dog’s rabies are current please give us a call at 563-2279.

Again, the Town of Cabot is waiving the late fee until June 1, 2020 but a reminder that the date for registering your dog is April 1.

Cabot Town Clerk/Treasurer

PLEASE continue to follow the recommended guidelines of the CDC and the VT Department of Health: wash your hands, practice “social distancing”; avoid large gatherings; and if feeling unwell with symptoms of the virus, stay home and call your primary care physician. We have been told not to go to the Emergency Room or Express Care to call your primary care physician instead.  YOUR continued good health is the primary concern.  Stay healthy, follow the guidelines, keep positive, and know “this too will pass”.
