Does Town Clerk Keep Money From Dog, Fishing And Hunting Licenses?
Reader wants to know where the fee money goes.
Question: Does the Town Clerk keep all the money on the sales of Dog, Fishing & Hunting Licenses or does the money go to the town? I had heard that the Town Clerk in Tewksbury keeps the proceeds on the licenses that I have stated above. If she does, why doesn't the money go to the Town of Tewksbury which is in desperate need of money to cover our expenses. Also, if she does, who voted on why that is happening?
Answer: We went directly to Town Clerk Denise Graffeo to answer this question and she provided the following response:
"100 percent of the funds collected for the sale of Dog Licenses goes directly to the Town. I do not receive any stipend. We no longer issued Sporting licenses, as they are now available online," said Graffeo.
