The Town of Deering Selectmen and Emergency Management Team continue to monitor updates from Federal and State officials regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). In light of the recent recommendations and State of Emergency announced by the Governor, our town departments are adjusting accordingly. To protect the public and staff from exposure and ensure continuity of service we are implementing several proactive steps.

The Board of Selectmen in cooperation with Town Clerk/Tax Collector voted March 17th, effective March 18th, to protect public health during the COVID-19 Emergency, to limit access all town buildings to essential employees, officials and visitors by appointment.  With exception to public meetings posted pursuant to RSA 91-A, the meeting must be open to the public in the public space noticed.

We will continue to transact your non-emergency business via phone, email, mail and internet services Monday – Thursday 8:00am to 4:00pm. We regret any inconvenience this may pose. It is in the best interest of the town residents and state to protect public health and maintain continuity of services.

We encourage people to use the online Tax and Clerk payment systems. Most applications and forms for other transactions are available for download on our website.
