OLD BUSINESS:

Water and Sewer Bills Over 90 Days:  The Selectboard looked at the Over 90 Days report.  Mrs. Daigle has to give the delinquent list to Mrs. Sandy Smith, Tax Collector, by next Thursday to begin the lien process.  Mr. Dalessio recommended Mrs. Daigle send out reminder letters that state any property owner who does not make payments by December 14th will be referred to the Tax Collector.  People are reminded of these bills periodically.  If people are making a good faith payment and keeping up with their agreements, they do not need the letter sent to them.  The Selectboard made decisions as to how to proceed with notifying people about the payment deadline of December 14th. Otherwise, they will remain on the list that will be forwarded to Mrs. Smith, Tax Collector, who will place a lien on the property.
