Essential board meetings will be held through Zoom. Watch the website for agendas and links.

The Transfer Station is open normal hours. Sale of transfer stickers and disposal of paid items is suspended until further notice. We are not handling cash there at this time. No loitering please, for your safety and that of the employees.

A quick update to let you know what’s happening in town. We have no new information on any additional positive cases in Otis. The Board of Selectmen declared a local State of Emergency following the state wide Emergency Declaration by Governor Baker. This was done to allow the Town flexibility in dealing with unplanned expenditures due to the Corona Virus.
