Town of Wilton Update Regarding In-person Access to Buildings and Comstock Community Center

Effective June 2nd, service delivery options for departments located in buildings on the Town of Wilton Campus are being expanded to allow in-person services and/or walk-in hours.  Instructions for each Town Campus building and the Comstock Community Center are detailed below.

We will continue to offer online, email, phone, Zoom and appointment-based services.  Many departments expanded online services during the pandemic. The following are examples of frequently used services available online:

  • All Town Clerk land records.
  • Dog license and license renewal application and payment. 
  • Transfer tickets and permits orders and payment.
  • Property tax payment with a no fee option.
  • Sign up to receive emailed property tax bills and reminders.
  • Fillable marriage license application.  Residents must still appear in-person, either inside or outside the Town Clerk’s office, to take the required oath.
  • Fillable temporary event permit, which may be emailed for approvals.  No more walking from department to department. 

Check the Town website for more fillable and easily emailed applications and forms.

Throughout the pandemic, we have followed the Governor’s executive orders and the guidance issued by CT DPH with good results.  We will continue to do so as we expand in-person services.  

Executive Order 12A empowers municipalities to implement building policies that work best for their municipality.  Wilton’s high vaccination rate, low case rate and the physical changes made within our municipal buildings allow for public access as follows.   

  • Fully vaccinated individuals, as defined by the CDC, may choose not to wear a mask or face covering inside municipal buildings. Individuals not vaccinated, but exempt from mask wearing under Executive Order 12A, may also choose not to wear a mask or face covering. 
  • Any individual, who is vaccinated or exempt, and is expected to be inside a municipal building for more than 10 minutes, will be required to show proof of vaccination or exemption from mask/face cover wearing.  
  • Visitors who are expected to be in the building for more than 10 minutes are required to complete a screening form. 
  • Residents should expect there will be other occupants in the building who are unable to be vaccinated because of existing medical conditions.  We ask residents to be respectful, if asked to wear a mask or face covering for the benefit of a medically compromised occupant of the building. 
  • Visitors to municipal buildings may request in-person services be provided outside the building.  Every effort will be made to meet those requests.  To facilitate such, additional tables and chairs are being placed outside municipal buildings. 
  • No occupants should make any assumptions about an individual’s vaccination status based on their wearing a mask or face covering.
