How do I apply for employment with the Town of Winthrop?
Each department is responsible for their own hiring as we do not have a Human Resource Department. Available positions are posted both in Town Hall as well as in the Winthrop Transcript.  Please also check each department's website page for any job postings.

How do I apply for a yard sale permit?
Please visit the Town Manager Forms Page and download a yard sale permit. Once the permit is printed and filled out, take it to the Town Clerk's office at Town Hall and pay the $5 permit fee.  The Town Clerk's office will give you a receipt which you then bring up with your permit to the Town Manager's Office.
