2019 tax bills may be delayed

LYNDEBOROUGH – The problems with the School District budget and the holding of a special district meeting on Nov. 9 to try to resolve some of the problems, will delay the setting of the town’s tax rate.

“Getting the bills out late will impact the year-end cash flow,” Town Administrator Russ Boland told the board of Selectmen at their regular meeting on Oct. 9. He added he hoped the town would not have to resort to a “tax anticipation loan.”

In other business, the board will hold a joint meeting with the Planning Board and the Conservation Commission at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday, Nov. 17, to determine the town’s response to a proposed asphalt processing plant just over the town line in Wilton. That hearing is set for Wednesday, Oct. 23 at the Wilton-Lyndeborough Cooperative School.

“We need to have an argument for our stand,” Chairman Mark Chamberlain said. “Not that we just don’t like it.”

Since Oct. 23 is the board’s regular meeting night, they will designate a representative to the meeting.

A contract for road salt has been executed and confirmed.

Halloween trick-or-treat hours were set for 6-8 p.m. on Oct. 31.

The town’s hazardous mitigation plan needs to be updated. That will be done using a grant through the Nashua Regional Planning Commission.

The next meeting of the board will be at 6 p.m. on Oct. 23 in the town office.
