Town Officials:

Important Information on Paying for your Permit Online:  For your convenience, you may pay for your permit online.  The bank that processes our permit fees is UniBank, and their on-line payment division is called UniPay Gold.  You may pay for your permit with either a checking account or debit or credit card.  There is a convenience fee for the use of any of these options.  However, convenience fees are much higher for credit cards than checking accounts due to credit card company rules.  The convenience fee for paying through a checking account is only 25 cents. Debit and credit card charges.
