Fish & Game

The Blackstone Town Clerk’s Office has not sold Fish & Game licenses since the end of calendar year 2011. New regulations implemented by the Massachusetts Division of Fish and Wildlife beginning January 1, 2012, discontinued the issuance of paper books, stamps, and abstracts. The regulations called for a completely electronic process which would have required the town to allow a third-party billing company direct access to the town’s bank accounts. In addition, a surety bond would have been required in order for the town to continue selling the licenses. Finally, upgrading of the computers would have been necessary in order to accommodate the electronic system.
