I will gradually update this list of the towns where I have paperwork so far.

This will be a large page as we have 169 towns.  Basic criteria will be the town, whether or not they are in full compliance.  If there are any issues, I’ll add notes on them.
Paperwork is whether we have it or not for that town.  Issues, number of issues.  Details, we’ll try to list as many as possible. 

Many will not have the state paperwork, that is OK as that is the same for all 169 towns.

If we have town paperwork, click on the hyperlink or read the notes to see why.  If there is no hyperlink or notes, we have no paperwork.
