FINANCE


2012 Property Taxes

The final tax installment was due September 28 and is now past due.  Penalty of 1.25% is applicable to all accounts with an outstanding balance and will continue to be added on the first day of each month until the balance is paid in full.

FIRE DEPARTMENT

This winter, make sure your chimney is in safe working order. Fires often result from a build-up of creosote in the chimney. A blocked chimney can also cause deadly carbon monoxide gas to enter your home, so check for the signs of corrosion or deterioration and for birds’ or squirrels’ nests. Your chimney should be cleaned and inspected at least once a year by a professional wood energy technician.


Winter Parking Requirements

Snow is on its way… please park your vehicle in your driveway, well off the road, until street and sidewalk cleaning operations are complete.  This allows our crews to do their job and make the streets and sidewalks safe for everyone. (Vehicles interfering with snow removal or blocking sidewalks may be ticketed)
