The Town of Newton issues yearly Food Establishment Licenses to all the businesses in the Town that serve or handle food. We also issue Tattoo / Body Piercing Establishment Licenses as well as Junk Dealer Licenses within the Town of Newton. The Sussex county Health Department will inspect all of these businesses prior to the Municipal Clerk's Office issuing their annual licenses.
Another area of responsibility is hosting and running the yearly "free" rabies clinic. These clinics are supported by the State Health Department which provides the vaccine at no cost to the Town.
