Registration for New Residents

Proof of Residence


You will need to provide one of the following to prove your residency:
  • Utility Bill (PSNew Hampshire, Metrocast, Water, etc) showing service at the address you are claiming. This may be mailed to an address outside of the residence you are claiming as long as the address is for mailing purposes only and the document states the service address with active service within the last 30 days. We reserve the right to request proof of continued residency at any time.
  • Fully executed original lease agreement. This document must have original signatures of the property owner as well as the tenant and state all of the persons residing in the home. The person requesting residency must be listed as a tenant.
  • Rental receipt imprinted with the address and containing the original signature of the property owner.
  • A signed residency affidavit from the property owner stating residency. This is a notarized statement. Samples are available in the City Clerk's Office for your use.
