Laws & Ordinances

     On April 1, 1805, during the first meeting of the newly established Town of Wells, Town Clerk William Wells recorded two laws:

  • That to be lawful a fence had to be 4-1/2 feet high.
  • Swine are forbidden to appear on the Commons.

    Today, major procedural steps are required before a Local Law is adopted.
