Notice is hereby given, in accordance with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 138, as amended, that a Public Hearing will be held on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 at 7:15 p.m. in the Michael J. Gianotis Meeting Room (No. 201) of the Maynard Town Building on the application for a transfer of Change of Manager for Club All Alcohol as a Common Victualler license for Maynard Rod and Gun Club Inc. d/b/a Maynard Rod and Gun Club with Manager, Amanda L. Tyler. Copy of application is on file in the Office of the Selectmen.
The Maynard Public Schools are closed again on Friday. There will be no afternoon/evening activities.
Trash and recycling collection has been further postponed from the holiday schedule. Collection will resume on Friday on a two-day delayed schedule for the remainder of the week, allowing for the New Year’s holiday AND the storm day. The schedule is now as follows:
Wednesday collections will take place on Friday,
Thursday collections will take place Saturday, and
Friday collections will take place on Sunday.
During/after the storm, be careful of over-exertion when shoveling snow. Watch for signs of frostbite or hypothermia: If symptoms are detected, get the victim to a warm location, remove any wet clothing, warm the center of the body first and give warm, non-alcoholic beverages. Get medical help, as soon as possible.
After the storm, avoid parking in the street. Stay off roads to allow plowing operations to proceed smoothly. Help dig out fire hydrants and storm drains in your neighborhood. Be aware of children playing in the streets, particularly climbing on or running out from behind large snowdrifts. Parents should remind their children to be aware of plowing operations and traffic. Clear exhaust vents from Direct Vent Gas Furnace Systems to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Use care around any downed power lines. Assume a down wire is a live wire. As always, be sure to check in frequently on neighbors, especially the elderly. We appreciate your patience as we work diligently to keep up with the intense storm to make the streets and sidewalks safe for all.
If you are planning to file for Real Estate or Personal Property Tax abatements, tax exemptions (such as Widowers/Elderly, Veterans, Blind, etc.), 3ABC Charitable organization or Personal Property tax listings, please visit the Assessors Office page for details on the filing deadlines, instructions and forms.
The Town of Maynard will accept prepayment of Real Estate Taxes for Fiscal 2018 as follows:
In order to make a payment, you may:
Come into the Town Hall and pay at the Treasurer-Collector’s counter before NOON on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29, 2017 or
Write a check and mail it to the Town of Maynard at 195 Main Street with a post mark date NO LATER than December 31, 2017 or
Leave your payment in the locked box on the front of the building at 195 Main Street no later than December 31, 2017.
PLEASE NOTE: there is no online service available for this until January 2018, which is too late for tax filing purposes. ALSO, due to heavy window volume, if you cannot reach us by phone to get the exact amount you owe, the amount of payment may be estimated by using the amount billed for the 1st and 2nd quarters of fiscal 2018 as you cannot pay more than what is due for the second half of fiscal 2018. Over payments MAY NOT be accepted.
Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this process – Happy New Year!
