North Andover to set annual tax rates
Amid the holiday’s festive celebrations, communities across the Commonwealth will host another of the season’s annual gatherings. There will be no mistletoe. No egg nog. Just the naughty list: Potholes and aging buildings in need of patching, and spiraling bills demanding attention, from ballooning pension costs to escalating health care expenses. With that naughty list in mind, local leaders will hold their annual tax classification hearing, a mundane meeting held each December to determine how much of the local tax burden each property owner must shoulder.
