Out of an abundance of caution, the Beverly Municipal Building is closed to the public effective immediately. Employees are still in the building but we are trying to minimize the potential spread of COVID19.

Alternatively, there is a Municipal Drop-off Box (big yellow mailbox) located by the front door where you can drop off payments, permits, correspondences and so forth. We check the box several times daily and it is under video surveillance 24/7.
If you must speak with an employee, the court or a police officer, please ring the bell and step away from the door.
Employees will be available by phone and email, Monday through Thursday 9am to 3pm. The municipal building will be CLOSED on Fridays until further notice.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we protect our residents and employees throughout this issue.
