In addition to the new veterans assistance fund, residents will also be given the option to donate to several other, previously established, funds on next month's tax bills. At Spring 2004 Town Meeting, residents approved local options MGL Chapter 60 Sections 3C and 3D. In doing so, they created a scholarship fund, an educational fund, and an elderly & disabled fund. For several years thereafter, residents were given the option on their tax bills to donate to these various funds, but that practice has been discontinued for a number of years.
Now that the Town is starting to once again give residents the opportunity to contribute to these various funds, the Board of Selectmen will appoint residents to each of these committees so that they can appropriately allocate funds that are collected through this process.
Please submit letters of interest by July 16, 2018 to the Town Administrator's Office at Wenham Town Hall, 138 Main Street or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
