Property inspectors calling

The town assessors’ office has begun its annual round of property inspections. The inspections are done over several months, with inspectors going door-to-door to inspect the interior and exterior of properties. The state requires that real estate be inspected periodically. The inspectors, Robert Alford and Ann Williams, carry town identification with their photographs and will not inspect the interior of a property unless a person age 18 or older is present. If no one is available for the interior inspection, a notice will be left on the doorknob requesting that the resident call the office at 508-230-0520 to set up an appointment. - Steve Hatch
