COVID case closes Moultonborough Town Clerk's office

January 06, 2021
MOULTONBOROUGH — The town clerk's office will be closed until Jan. 18 after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19, though services are available remotely and a few neighboring towns are helping with some business.

A notice was posted on Jan. 4 that the town clerk's office would be closed from Jan. 4-17 and expected to open on Jan. 18.

According to the notice, the town learned that an employee in that office had tested positive for COVID-19. Anyone who was at the town clerk's office on Dec. 31 are asked to contact their primary care physician for advice on potential coronavirus exposure.

As a result the town hall itself will be closed to public access until Jan. 11.

Most town clerk services can be accessed online, for services and more information visit the town clerk's Web page at https://www.moultonboroughnh.gov/town-clerk.

The drop box is also still available for payments and documents and people can also send payments and paperwork by mail. People can also call the office at 476-2347 and townclerk@moultonboroughnh.gov.

While the town clerk's office is closed, Meredith and Center Harbor's town clerks will be available to handle any business for the Moultonborough town clerk that has to be conducted in person. People are encouraged to conduct business remotely, but Meredith Town Clerk Kerri Parker and Center Harbor Town Clerk Mary Richardson will be available for any business by Moultonborough residents that has to be conducted in person.

On Monday, Meredith Town Manager Phil Warren reported the situation to the Meredith selectmen.

"The town clerk of course was willing to help so at this point we worked the process out," Warren said. "Kerri will be dropping off the materials at the end of the day at the Moultonborough town hall so they can process it."

Meredith's town hall is open to the public, though Center Harbor's is available by appointment only. Contact Parker at 677-4203 and Richardson at 253-4561, though Moultonborough is urging people to email their town clerk's office before contacting Meredith or Center Harbor.

"Thank you for your patience during this difficult time," read a notice posted on Moultonborough town hall. "Please understand that Meredith and Center Harbor are already hard at work with their own residents and we don't want to overburden them. If you are able to wait until we reopen or do remote transactions, we ask that you please do so."
