Town Hall, Library, and COA buildings CLOSED to the public due to COVID-19


Residents of Boxford:

As all of us continue to respond and react to the ever-changing landscape of the COVID-19 outbreak, it has become apparent that “social distancing” is essential to our common public health response.  As you may be aware, all gatherings over 250 people have been banned in Massachusetts; individuals are instructed to maintain a physical separation of six feet or more and there are new protocols for document treatment and handling of cash.  Also, our public schools have been closed for the next two weeks.

The health and safety of our staff and community are of utmost importance to all in Boxford.  To that end, effective today, Town of Boxford’s non-public safety department buildings will be closed to public access until March 30th.  However, our service to our residents will continue: 

  • Police, Fire, 911 Communications and DPW services will continue unchanged and without interruption.
  • Non-public safety departments will still provide services to residents through online transactions and communications and via the telephone. 
  • The Council on Aging will provide outreach directly to its client base to ensure our most vulnerable residents are receiving the best service possible. 
  • The Library will provide detailed information on access to materials and “contactless” pick-up and drop off. 
  • Regulatory departments will still ensure that the design and construction industries will be able to seek permit reviews and needed inspections and regulatory oversight.
  • And, yes, the town will ensure opportunities for timely and efficient payment of taxes.
