2018 Dog Licenses and renewals are available after January 1, 2018 at the Town Clerk’s office. A dog must have had a rabies inoculation not more than 36 months prior to the date of licensing for older dogs. Not more than 12 months for puppies. A rabies certificate is required for licensing.
Wilmington Police want to remind persons that winter parking regulations are in effect at the present time. There is no parking on village streets between the hours of 3:00AM and 6:00AM. Vehicles left on the streets during those hours may be ticketed by police and/or towed. We are currently working with several landlords to find alternative locations for persons needing to park during those hours. The municipal parking lots are also a concern with winter arriving. The Wilmington Highway Department strives to properly maintain our municipal lots for the use of all residents and visitors alike. They are however limited to 24 hour parking, please keep this in mind. In past years police have been called to remove vehicles parked over the 24 hour limit to facilitate snow plowing and removal. Further Information will be posted on the Town of Wilmington Website as well as the Wilmington Police Department Facebook Page as we continue to work on solutions to this issue. We appreciate your cooperation. Chief Szarejko
