Update on 2017 Assessment Update

UPDATE ON THE 2017 ASSESSMENT UPDATE

The period for changes to assessments has closed as of November 2, 2017. The process from here is that the town will be submitting this information to the state for review and the new tax rate will be set in the next few weeks with tax bills to follow. You have 30 days from the date of the tax bill to pay before interest will begin to accrue.

AFTER the tax bill comes out, if you still feel you are aggrieved by the assessment, you may file for an abatement prior to March 1, 2018. The forms will be available on our website, by mailing a self-addressed stamped #10 envelope to the Selectmen’s Office, or by picking one up at the Town Hall. Filing an abatement does not stay the collection of the tax bill. The tax bill is due and payable as presented. Therefore, if you plan to file an abatement, we suggest you pay your tax bill because if you don’t, interest will begin to accrue, however, it is your option on whether to pay or not.

The manual that explains the methodology of how the assessments were determined is on our website or at the Town Hall.

Any questions regarding assessments should be directed to the Selectmen’s Office preferably in writing either by mail at 56 Town Hall Road, Intervale, NH 03845 or by email at selectmen@townofbartlettnh.org.

Have you been affected by the storm of 10/30/2017?

INFORMATION FOR RESIDENTS AFFECTED BY THE STORM OF 10/30/2017

Any resident who sustained any damage needs to call 211 and register with the State of NH.

At this time this is an information gathering process to determine IF we will qualify for assistance funding.

Registering is not a guarantee that you will receive any funding and again, this is an information gathering process at this point in time to add up all of the damage to see if the Town will qualify for assistance.

If any resident’s place of residence sustained damage and needs assistance with temporary lodging, the Red Cross can be reached at 800-464-6692.

Disposal of Storm Damage Debris

DISPOSAL OF 10/30/17 STORM DAMAGE DEBRIS

The Town of Bartlett Board of Selectmen have agreed to allow any Bartlett property owners who suffered storm damage to their property on October 30, 2017 to dispose of the debris at the Bartlett Jackson Transfer Station at no charge. HOWEVER, you must follow the procedure they have set forth in order to not pay for disposal.

PROCEDURE:

Property owners must go to the Town Clerk-Tax Collector’s Office (see hours listed below) to get a Hauler Permit and you will be given certain time periods during which you can dispose of the debris. Please place the debris where the attendants direct you. If you fail to follow this procedure, you will have to pay to dispose of the debris or you may be refused access to dump. We cannot accept entire structures nor hazardous materials, but will take items that were stored in basements or property that was water damaged by the flooding. If you have any questions, please contact the Selectmen’s Office at (603) 356-2950 or by email at selectmen@townofbartlettnh.org.
