Press Release: Hopkinton Census Problem

It appears that the census that went out may have printed without residents under the age of 17.  These individuals have likely not been removed from our internal system.  However, if you notice that your minors are not listed, please add them in and send the census out as usual.  If you forget to add them in and they are already in our system then they will not be removed.
We are working to identify the cause of the issue, but again this will not have an effect on the resident status of minors in the household.  Again, please add all minors to your census to ensure that they are listed accurately.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Hopkinton Town Clerk’s office.
Phone: 508-497-9710
