Town Takes 9 Green Street for Non Payment of Taxes

April 11, 2019

Town Administrator Jeff Ritter announced at the Economic Development Committee meeting Wednesday morning that the town had taken the first steps to seize the property at 9 Green Street for the non-payment of $132,000 in back taxes. The amount does not include legal fees the town may incur. The property had previously been used as a bowling alley during the depression years of the 1930's and later as the Ty-Car Mfg. Co. which made clock hands. In the most recent years the building was sub-divided into individual office spaces. Selectmen have set up a 9 Green Street Committee to bring forth ideas for the future use of the property.

It was also announced that Mederi, a medical marjuana grower at 44 Boynton Road has requested and received a letter of non-opposition from the selectmen at their previous meeting. The company is expecting to employ 20-40 people when their operation is up and running and the expected revenue to the town in Mederi's first year of operation will be somewhere around $157,000.

Stop signs in the Mudville neighborhood which were deployed last week and then some suddenly disappeared will all be up again at week's end according to DPW Chief Sean Reese. The disappearing signs were due to legal issues according to Reese, who also noted that turn restriction signs slated for Pleasant, Spring & School Streets should be showing up sometime next week.

Hollis Street will be closed beginning Monday of next week for a grid down and repaving. The street will be open to residents only. The operation should only last 2-3 days, and with school out on vacation the road will have less traffic than normal.

Chairman Peter Barberi thanked recently resigned EDC member Susan Russo for her years of service on the board. The EDC currently has 3 vacancies and asks interested residents to submit their names to the selectmen's office.
