Welcome to the Borough of Stonington

Every effort is made to include  accurate and up-to-date information in good faith; however, the Borough of  Stonington takes no legal responsibility for the information provided or found  as a consequence of this service nor for any loss or damage resulting from this  information.

The Borough of Stonington was chartered in 1801 by a special act of the legislature of the State of Connecticut. It is the oldest Borough in Connecticut. The Borough Charter sets forth the basic structure of Borough government, describing  the powers and duties of the elected officials. The governing body is the Board of Warden & Burgesses, which has the power to make Ordinances and prepares  the budget for approval at the Annual Borough and Budget Meeting in the third week of April. The Board of Warden & Burgesses also appoints members of the Planning & Zoning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals. The Harbor Management Commission is a joint agency of the Town and the Borough.

The bell mechanism on the Borough Clock is not working. We are working on scheduling a visit by a tower clock technician. Meanwhile, the clock itself is showing correct time, more or less. Jeff Callahan

During this cleanup season, residents are encouraged to use paper bags instead of plastic for their brush, leaves, and clippings.  Plastic bags have to be emptied by the street crew before the contents are taken to the Town landfill; paper bags do not, saving the crew time.  These bags are available locally. 

Free Prescription Discount Cards are available at the Borough office.  You may pick them up Wednesdays-Fridays from 8 - 2 pm.

Decals are now available in the office for Resident overnight parking at Wayland's Wharf. For more details and application form, click here.


Note:  If you have a previously issued permit, you will need to submit a new application to receive the new decal.
