I do not believe that the board can change it. If the voters approved the
8% penalty then the voters would have to approve a change. Also, depending
on if your collector of delinquent taxes is paid by penalties, the amount
of the penalty could be an issue regarding the job. Just my 2 cents worth.
I personally would like us to do a graduated penalty and we may shoot for
that change with an article on the town warning in 2015.
