Beach Pass Information

On May 13th, 2005, the Town Clerk’s office was notified by DEM that the State will no longer be accepting “taxpayer slips” from out of state taxpayers that own property in R.I. Non-resident taxpayers will be required to pay the rate according to their state of registration. Click here to access the RIDEM site for the user fees at all State Beaches, Parks and Recreational Areas.
