2017 Annual Town Census

All Maynard households will receive an annual town census form by mail in late December, 2016.

The census form will list all residents at your address; this includes children (children’s information is held as confidential). Please look it over and update if needed. Sign your census form and return it as soon as possible. The form must be returned even if there are no changes.

Three things you may not accomplish on your annual town census form:

  1. Register to vote
  2. Change your name
  3. Change your party affiliation

You must fill out the voter registration form in order to achieve any of these actions

Maintaining resident count is important. State and federal funding may be based on population count. If the town’s population count is low, certain funding may be lost.

At the bottom of the annual town census form you will find a 2017 dog license renewal/request form. Please complete this form if you are a dog owner and be sure to include the following:

  • Dog(s) license fee: $10 for for neutered/spade, $15 for intact
  • Please make checks payable to the Town of Maynard
  • Current rabies vaccination form

Remember to license your dog(s) by February 28, 2017 or a late fee of $25 dollars will be applied.

Census forms and dog license renewal/request form and maybe mailed, dropped off at the Town Clerk’s Office or at the Maynard Public Library in the silver bins labeled “Annual Town Census”.

If you have any questions regarding the 2017 annual town census, please call the Town Clerk’s Office at 978-897-1300.

Composting is EASY and Helps Reduce Greenhouse Gases

The Board of Health reminds everyone that composting is a great way to recycle our organic “waste” into a beneficial soil amendment for our yards and gardens. Composting at home can also help reduce methane production at landfills. Using the compost in our landscapes helps store carbon in the soil instead of releasing it to the atmosphere. Compost creates healthy soil, reducing or eliminating the need for fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation. We can reduce our trash by 50 percent or more by composting.

It’s easy to make compost, and the Town of Maynard makes it even easier by offering rodent- resistant home composting bins for $35.00, over 50% off the retail price. To obtain a discounted compost bin, please contact or visit the Board of Health office.
