>>

>> the rubble and building a new house. It was a joy to be able to tell him
>> that he was getting a refund of taxes (paid by the escrow).
>> 
>> Now, for the first time, we have received requests for abatement on the
>> interest and penalty  for late final payment. If someone insists on coming
>> in, do we hear them anyway, despite pointing out that there is no
>> abatement of just the "add-ons?" I am referencing the publication put out
>> by Deb Markowitz and did send a rather long email to the last person about

>> and suffering from memory lapses and forgot to pay the bill and never
>> missed a payment in 50-plus years) will not want to come in. Can the Town
>> Clerk simply tell someone no on the interest and penalties since it is
>> spelled out?
>> 
>> Final question - does anyone have minimum amount for the BOA to meet? One
>> of the requests considered on Monday night was for one quarter of the tax
>> year on a burned down garage. The total was $23.66 tax, 1.89 penalty and
>> .24 interest. I'm not advocating not hearing someone's request but am
>> curious as to what other towns do, so I can report to the BOA.
