If you are up and out early, please use an abundance of caution while traveling on the roadways, as this storm has wreaked havoc on trees and powerlines all around town. Though we are doing our best to have an officer posted at every hazard, manning is obviously an issue.

If you encounter any obstruction(s) in the roadway, please call them in so that they can be added to our list.

Please be safe out there my friends!

Where is the Board of Health on COVID vaccine? Missing in Action? I have sent 2 messages and received 0 responses. WE NEED MORE publicity for EVERYONE to get the VAX - all eligible people! Not happy as a Senior Citizen 25 years in Dartmouth as a TAXPAYER!
Calling all karaoke singers!! Every Thursday karaoke!! Awesome people every week come on down !!
Took these photo's at 2;30pm today at Dartmouth WM...(Dartmouth Ma. Parking Enforcement Officer) Would never had noticed this vehicle had it not cut me off entering Wal-Mart. Personal use of city resources must be a violation of some kind. She write's traffic citations and parks in a reserved spot for official use and does her personal shopping..... Something is not right here.....
Will the town be asking Elizabeth Warren if the towns logo is offensive to her tribe?
Is the town of Dartmouth going to charge people who have wells the amount of water they pull out of the ground? I heard they want to put meters on the wells and charge for the water.
LIGHTING the WAY: Devoted to sailing and public service, Hope Atkinson (1927-2015) made a difference across many SouthCoast Massachusetts communities. Hope learned to sail and to lead through the Girl Scout Mariner program in South Dartmouth’s Padanaram. She later served as town meeting member and library trustee in Dartmouth, president of the Association for the Relief of Aged Women (ARAW) in New Bedford, and high school librarian in Wareham. Throughout her life she was a leader in multiple non-profit programs focusing on conservation, libraries, historic preservation, and elder affairs.

Hello! My husband and I just moved to Darthmouth and this may seem like a super silly question but how does the trash system work? I looked up the recycling schedule and understand that. But the actual orange trash bags do they go on the side of the road? Or do I put them in a barrel? Thanks for all the help!
