  • Re-opening Town Offices

    Posted on Thu, Jun 04 at 08:47am

    Beginning in March assistance in assessing, welfare, recreation, building, and planning was made available by appointment only as town employees transitioned to remote working in the interest of public safety.  As time has ticked by we are eager to get back to "normal".  We have been working diligently implementing new safety protocols to ensure a safe environment for both employees and the residents we serve.  We highly recommend the use of masks when visiting us at the town office, practice social distancing, hand sanitizer stations will be installed, and Plexiglass barriers on all office doors.  Residents will be required to remain in the main corridor for assistance and will no longer be allowed to enter offices. 

    We will open on a limited schedule to the public beginning on June 22, 2020.

    Open office hours will be:

    Planning: Monday and Wednesday

    Finance and Assessing: Wednesday and Thursday

    Recreation and Building: Tuesday and Thursday

    We anticipate a full re-opening and resuming regular office hours on Monday, July 6.

    In order to minimize foot traffic in the Town Office, to maximize social distancing and to reduce the risk of exposure to both residents and employees, we strongly encourage residents to continue to make use of our online tools which can be accessed online at any time via our website: www.brentwoodnh.gov

    Please keep in mind that these protocols will be in place until further notice. We thank you in advance for your cooperation – working together, we hope to have a safe and healthy re-opening to the public. Again, please note that departments may need to adapt procedures specific to their facilities and services. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any suggestions as to how we may help to keep our employees and residents safe and well!

  • Mosquitoes and Ticks

    Posted on Aug 08, 2019

    Mosquito-borne diseases transmitted in New Hampshire include West Nile virus (WNV), Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus, and Jamestown Canyon virus (JCV). EEE and WNV are maintained in a bird-mosquito transmission cycle with humans considered incidental hosts. JCV is maintained in a deer-mosquito transmission cycle. The greatest risk for human acquisition of WNV and EEE in NH is between July and October. Risk for JCV acquisition begins as early as April when the snow melt mosquitoes are present and biting.


    Jamestown Canyon Virus was detected in Kingston.  As a result, Brentwood's risk level is being increased to "Moderate" for the threat of mosquito borne disease.


    The Powassan Virus was also detected.  Powassan is a tick borne disease.
