There are still a few bargains in Truro, or at least there were until Jan. 10. Up until then, residents had been paying much less to register their businesses, marriages, and births here than residents of Provincetown, Wellfleet, and Eastham did. But these town fees have gone up after Town Clerk Kaci Fullerton told the select board Jan. 10 that Truro’s rates were too low to cover office expenses.
The new fee for a marriage application is $30, up from $10; a license for an unspayed female dog went from $6 to $15; and the cost of getting a business certificate went from $10 to $30.
This brings Truro’s fees in line with those of neighboring towns, although in some cases Truro residents are still getting a deal. It costs $40 for a business certificate in Provincetown and $100 in Eastham, according to Fullerton. —K.C. Myers
