Permits are issued to groups or organizations that intend to conduct raffles during the year.
The Chief of Police approves the completed application. Then the Town Clerk issues a certificate that must be displayed on-site in full view of the public on the day of the event. The certificate is valid for 1 year. Forms are given to the group hosting the event to be completed and submitted to the Massachusetts State Lottery in Braintree indicating the winners, the net proceeds and the uses to which the proceeds were applied.
Application & Fee Applications (PDF) can be obtained online, or at the Clerk's office. They are filed with the Town Clerk's office. There is a filing fee of $10 payable with the application.
