MPR public information session 1/6 re potential new building

From Kevin Ryder –

MONDAY JANUARY 6, 2020 6:30PM @ PFAFF MEDFIELD PARKS & RECREATION DEPARTMENT PUBLIC INFO SESSION FOR NEW PARK & REC CENTER Have your voice heard on what should be part of a potential new Park & Recreation Center in Medfield! Hear from Park & Rec and the consultants about progress and work done to date.

I wanted to update you on the status of our work with the consultants from Abacus in regard to a new Park & Rec facility.

We will be hosting a PUBLIC INFO SESSION on Monday, Jan 6, 2020 at 6:30pm at the Pfaff. The goal of this session is to update the public on the process and solicit information from the public about what they want to see in a new facility.

I have attached a flyer to this email. Could you pass the word along to the Selectmen?

Any questions, please let me know

Hi Kristine,

I heard the digitization of town annual reports came up in the last selectman’s meeting, and I wanted to let you know that the library digitized all of the reports that we had a while back through the State Library commonwealth digitization project. Here’s the link: https://archives.lib.state.ma.us/handle/2452/427813  and you’re welcome to throw that up on the town website.

Thanks,

Pam

It was nice to meet Nick at the Select Board meeting last night.

Your tax bill

The Division of Local Services (DLS) of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue sends me emails with lots of data.  I was especially interested to see our colleagues in pain on the attached chart of what towns pay for property taxes.  Look at it on-line here

FY19AvgSFTBAmount

This lists the towns paying the ten highest and lowest property taxes – we must be just off the high list:

tax bills-highest-2019

This was that same list from last year (which makes me wonder what sources of revenue Concord and Sudbury found to be able to lower their taxes):
