The Town of Berlin remains here to serve you, with some adjustments:

  • Town facilities remain closed to the public although you may call to make an appointment with town officials.  Please call first to ensure a particular office is open and staffed in-person before visiting the Town Office building.
  • Departments remain operational, however business is increasingly conducted remotely: over the phone, via email, and via mail.  See individual department websites for hours of operation.  Contact information for most departments online at https://www.townofberlin.com/home/pages/town-berlin-phone-directory.
  • Email, voicemail, and US Mail remain the best ways to reach departments you seek.
  • Dropping off something for a Town employee?  Please use the green lock box in the front lobby of the Town Offices complex at 23 Linden Street, Berlin, MA.  While access to the inside of the Town Offices remains by appointment only, the glass lobby is open 24/7.  
  • Please be patient as we transition to adapt to the temporary changes.
