Eligibility For Non-Resident Beach Stickers

The applicant must:

  • Be staying in the town of Truro
  • Be staying at a rental property whose landlord has complied with the Rental Registration Bylaw. Which states: Property owners who rent for 120 days or less must register the property with the town, then provide a completed application for their guests who may take said application to the Beach office as proof of stay to obtain their sticker.
  • Complete a Non-Resident and Non-Renter Application if the applicant is a relative or a guest of a Truro resident. The Truro owner at whose property the guest is staying must sign the completed application. (available at Beach Office)

Replacement Stickers

Replacement stickers will be issued upon reasonable proof of loss or theft of a sticker, or if the vehicle is traded or sold and plates transferred to a new vehicle. Only one replacement per sticker is permitted in a season. A portion of the original sticker showing the printed number must be presented at the time of the replacement request. There will be a $1.00 charge for a replacement sticker.

Misuse of Stickers

At all times, the sticker remains the property of the Town of Truro. The person to whom the sticker has been issued (pass holder) has purchased a use privilege, not the sticker and agrees that the sticker may be revoked by removal or other means if it is misused. The pass holder also agrees that the Town of Truro will make the final judgment as to whether a sticker has been misused.

Penalties and Revocation of Stickers

  1. A Parking Control Officer, Police Officer, Special Police Officer, the Beach Supervisor or his/her duly authorized agent may remove stickers for misuse.
  2. Persons whose stickers have been removed have seven days to appeal to the Beach Supervisor.
