The Town of Dryden will be conducting a dog enumeration beginning September 1, 2016. The Dog Control Officers will visit all town residences to verify that all dogs are licensed as required by New York State. Dog licensing verifies that a dog has a current rabies vaccine and assists the Dog Control Officers in their efforts to return a lost dog.

To avoid an enumeration fee in addition to the regular licensing fees, please make sure your dog is licensed as soon as possible. It is quite easy and the Clerk’s Office is happy to help. To apply, simply mail (or stop by) the Town Clerk’s office with an application, a current rabies certificate and proof of spay/neuter, if applicable. Applications are available on the Town’s website and at the Clerk’s office located at 93 East Main Street, Dryden.

If you have any questions, please contact the Town Clerk at 844-8888, option 3.

Casella Trash Tags

Due to the limited places that Casella Trash Tags are available in Dryden, the Town Clerk’s Office has decided to help out. We will be selling the 12 tag sheets at our office for $13.50, cash or check please.Please note that these are the tags for the Town. Tags for Village pick up are available at the Village Offices located at 16 South Street.

The Clerk’s office hours are 8am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday.
