PLANNING BOARD MEETINGS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

Due to COVID-19, the Governors Emergency Order 23 relieves the Planning Board of meeting and accepting, hearing and acting on applications. Generally, the Planning Board will only cancel its regularly scheduled meeting if there is no public business or it is apparent that that the gathering will exceed Governors Order 16, prohibition of 10 or more people. The determination to cancel will be made on a month-to-month basis. Should you have a question, concern or need please contact the Planning Board.

AVITAR INSPECTIONS/VISITS

Avitar will be in the area again beginning the week of June 15th-June 19th to do inspections and site visits. Their vehicle should be marked with Avitar on the side.

In light of the Governor’s announcement regarding the State of Emergency and School closures, Avitar has felt the need to be proactive and safe.  Given the contracts they have in place, they still need to work and keep on schedule as much as possible.  Their field staff are still out in the field working, however, they have been advised not to enter properties for interior inspections.  They will still visit, knock, step back and gather information from the taxpayers at the door and continue on with any exterior work needed.  This is in line with the CDC recommendations regarding avoidance of close contact.  If taxpayers are sick, please be advised not to open the door at all.  They will be sending letters at a later date to complete interior inspections where needed.  The safety of their staff and all taxpayers is one of their top concerns and they will work diligently to ensure everyone stays as safe as possible.  They recognize that they may encounter children home alone or with their parents and want to get the word out regarding their protocol.  If this pandemic continues, this may alter how they handle the informal hearing process for those towns with updates/revaluations this year, as well.  They will post updates as they occur on their website and send further notification if and when things change. 

 

TRANSFER STATION PERMITS

Effective June 1, 2020 Transfer Station Permits will be required in order to use the Groton Transfer Station. These permits can be obtained through the Town Clerk and will be $1.00 per permit. These permit stickers will need to be placed in the upper left corner of your windshield. Please be sure to see the Town Clerk prior to June 1, 2020 to obtain your Transfer Station Permit. Thank you!
