Water District No. 1 Ad Valorem Increase

Thank you for your patience while waiting for an explanation of the increase of the ad valorem portion of your property tax bill.  The large increase this year is due to an increase in personnel costs.  Over the previous two years this amount of your bill has decreased significantly.  Next year, we will try to even out these fluctuations so it will be more clear.  If you would like to ask more detailed questions, please stop by or call the Town Hall and talk to me.

Joe Pete Wilson, Town Supervisor




Keene Transfer Station is now using Zero-Sort Recycling.  Start saving tipping fees by recycling more, instead of throwing it away, you will be able to put more recyclables in the Zero-Sort compactor:  magazines and phone books, newspapers, file folders and office paper, mail and greeting cards, all plastic containers (#1-7), large rigid plastics, metal cans and glass bottles and jars.  Separate containers will be available for cardboard and boxboards and for metal (consider putting your metal cans here) to be picked up by Casella and treated as a revenue.
