Northdust you are right on the money.

Listers intend to do a complete re-assessment next year.

Did you see the meeting it was a very terse & tense
meeting and Ms. Roberts held her ground, right to the point.

Paul Noble another lister was very informative and
explained the issues and questions to Jigs & Tom

Wait for the mail as the bible states quite well

"There will be the weeping of tears and gnashing of teeth" when you get your tax bills soon.

jeesh 10000 bucks would have done more for the rec center don't you think oh well free i guess ya cant complain, just didn't see a real big issue with speed, i would like to see the accident rate in the village related to speed
The same donor recently gave $30k to the Rec Center as well. One of the reasons there haven't been many accidents in BF is due to Police presence on these entry points to the Village. Perhaps some of that speed control time can now be used for Village patrol. With a $1,000,000 plus annual budget,$10k for these seems like a good buy.

To bad we didnít get the cameras, might have saved more money than the 1.2 million in the police budget and actually prevented open drug sales on the streets, dog poop and solved crime.
The donor of that money got that Thirty thousand from the lawsuit and just gave it back to BF. You notice that the state police refuse to settle and have their good reasons why.
