Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Is the Town Clerk’s office open late?
A. Yes, the Town Clerk’s office is open late on Tuesday nights, until 7:00 p.m. except during the summer months of July and August.

Q. How do I obtain information on a property in Durham?
A. The Town of Durham Website has information under “Assessment Information” about all parcels of land in the town. From this site you can print the “field card” and “assessor maps.” The field card is a summary of information on each property. The Volume and Page of the deed is noted on the field card.   GIS information has also been recently added.

Q. Where do I get a dog license and do I need one every year?
A. You obtain the dog license from the Town Clerk’s office. You must bring in paperwork from the vet showing, 1) rabies expiration date, and, 2) spaying or neutering. You may also obtain a dog license by mail as long as you provide the same information as above, payment, and self-addressed stamped envelope. Connecticut State Law requires that all dogs be licensed every June (current fee for fixed dog is $8.00, current fee for unfixed dog is $19.00). For every month after June there is a $1.00 late fee added per month.
