Tenants With Agents Pre-Registration (mail-in)          
Agents requiring application forms can pick them up after October 1 at Chilmark Town Hall. An email message reminds agents to pick up the forms. This is an example of a previous email to agents:
To: Martha’s Vineyard Rental Agents
From: Chilmark Sticker Office
Re:  Sticker Application (Beach Parking)
To arrange for your Chilmark tenants to participate in our Mail-In Sticker Program, please reply by e-mail as soon as possible with the number of applications you need and the name of a contact in your office. If you have any questions, call us at 508-645-2101

A complete list of agents who are on the email list appears in an Appendix in this handbook.

Agents complete the top part of application form, sign it and mail them to their clients with (an optional) letter, an example of which appears later in this handbook. Tenants, then, send the signed, completed application card and a copy of their car registration and a check for the total amount, payable to the Town of Chilmark, directly to Chilmark Town Hall.  This is the address:
STICKER OFFICE
TOWN OF CHILMARK
PO BOX 119
CHILMARK, MA 02535-0119.

Applications may be submitted until three weeks prior to start of lease. Stickers will be available at the Town Hall Sticker office on the day that parking privileges begin.  Office hours are 9 A.M. to Noon., seven days a week. Identification and signature are necessary to pick up Stickers.

Incomplete applications will be returned to the agent.   
                            
To avoid a misunderstanding about conflict of dates, the agent and the customer must understand that tenants cannot park at the beach on the first date of their lease unless there was no previous tenant. This is to avoid overlapping dates and tenants who arrive after Noon. when the Sticker Office is closed.

There are no refunds for canceled Sticker applications. Rental cars are not eligible for this service.
