    TAX COLLECTOR'S NOTICE

    Notice is hereby given that TAXES on the grand list of October 1, 2004 are DUE AND PAYABLE on July 1, 2005. The last day on which to pay without penalty is Monday, August 1, 2005. Taxes are due at the following mill rate: 11.00 (eleven).

    Late payments will be subject to interest penalty at the rate of one and one half percent per month or fraction thereof, (18 percent per annum), from the due date of the tax (July 1, 2005), as required by Conn. Gen. Stat. 12-130, 145 and 146.

    Payments received August 1, 2005 and later, including payments postmarked August 1 and later, are considered past due. The minimum interest charge is $2 on each tax bill. The returned check fee is $20 plus postage.

    The first installment of real estate and personal property tax bills in excess of $100, are currently due. Motor vehicle tax bills, and all other bills less than $100, are currently due in a single installment. The second installment of dual installment bills will come due January 1, 2006.

    As owners of property, taxpayers are responsible to see that taxes are paid when due. Failure to have received a bill does not exempt the taxpayer from payment of all taxes and all interest charges and collection costs, as per Conn. Gen. Stat. 12-130 and 12-146. INTEREST IS CHARGED ON ALL LATE PAYMENTS. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY.

    When paying in person: Bring your bill with you. Bills may be paid at the Tax Collector's Office in Bryan Memorial Town Hall from 9:00 a.m. to Noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. Special Hours: Saturday July 30, 2005 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

    Whether paying by mail or in person please include the appropriate portion of your tax bill(s) with your payment. Payments are mailed to Washington Tax Collector, P.O. Box 383, Washington Depot, CT 06794. For a return receipt please enclose a SELF-ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE with you payment and coupon.

    The Tax collector's Office makes every effort to show all your past due accounts, if any, on a statement included with your new bills. Any past due taxes must be paid in full before payment on current bills can be accepted. Any payment you remit will be applied to past due taxes and interest charges first.

    If real estate taxes remain unpaid as of May 31, 2006, tax liens will be applied in accordance with state statute. If you do not receive a bill for taxes owed by the first week in July, please contact the Tax Collector's Office immediately.

    If motor vehicle taxes remain unpaid, you will be unable to renew vehicle registrations with the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles, per Conn. Gen. Stat. 14-33. Past due motor vehicle taxes must be paid in full by cash, cashiers' check or money order in order to receive immediate DMV clearance. All outstanding vehicle taxes in your name, including taxes not yet delinquent, must be paid in full in order for a release to be issued.

    If you do not receive a tax bill you are supposed to pay, or if you have any questions about the bill you received, please call the Tax Collector's Office at (860) 868-7796 or fax your correspondence to (860) 868-3103 or email at TAX@WASHINGTONCT.ORG.

    CONSERVATION COMMISSION
    OPEN SPACE COMMITTEE
    AGENDA - May 18, 2005 5:00pm

    This will be an abbreviated OSC meeting - 5 - 6:00PM. We will be meeting on the balcony level of Town Hall.

    Why, you ask? Because the Depot Study Project is starting at 6:00PM in the Land Use Room and they need time to set up. I have been asked to join the study as a member of the Advisory Committee. Please include Dick Sears and Kelly Boling on the distribution.

    The Agenda for the OSC meeting has only two items:
    > The minutes
    > Brainstorming Open Space Guidance for Zoning and the Depot Study

    There is a remarkable convergence of events occurring for the OS Committee. The discussion of multi-unit housing in the villages, the Depot Study and the overwhelming commitment of the community to OS as a critical component of the preservation of Washington's Rural Character.

    At the Wednesday meeting, let's frame our point-of-view on OS in the villages and deliver it to Zoning and Planning as guidance for their efforts.

    To: Washington Residents
    From: Washington Zoning Commission
    RE: Public Informational Meeting

    In order to provide a greater variety of housing choices in Washington, the Washington Zoning Commission is considering revisions to the Zoning Regulations, which would allow multifamily housing by Special Permit under very limited circumstances, as follows:

    1. The areas where multifamily housing would be permitted under this proposal would be restricted to:

      • The Marbledale, Washington Depot, and New Preston business districts;
      • The area within 1000 feet of the Marbledale Business District boundary, but not closer than 100 feet to the East Aspetuck River; and
      • Properties in the Farming-Residential District (R-1) where an institutional use such as an inn or school already exists.

    2. The maximum number of multifamily housing units that could be approved, cumulatively, would be 50.

    The Zoning Commission invites the public to attend an informational meeting on Monday, April 25, 2005, at 7:30 p.m., in the Land Use Meeting Room, Bryan Memorial Town Hall, Washington Depot to discuss the details of this proposal. The Commission hopes to gain input from as many people as possible prior to beginning the process of drafting specific implementation language.

    If you have any questions, please contact Janet Hill, Land Use Coordinator, at 860-868-0844.

    Meeting Agenda
    Wednesday, March 16, 2005, 5 - 6:30PM

    ¢ Approval of the February 2005 Meeting minutes - Attached

    ¢ Review of the March 21 presentation to the Selectmen (or is it persons?) and the Board of Finance - Attached

    ¢ Review and discussion of the evaluation criteria to be used in ranking available OS parcels for permanent preservation. The Open Space Plan dated March 1, 2002 developed a set of "criteria for parcel evaluation" and a related "scoring" scheme (pg 20). Its application requires considerable judgment and time. Can it be made objective and reduce the amount of Committee time to apply? George Blake will join us advise on the data available.

    ¢ As time permits, Review the Homework - I bet you forgot…but I didn't. See below.

    The OSC communications plan starts with the simple question asked by each of the constituencies, WIIIFM? What Is In It For Me?

    For the next meeting, let's see if we can develop a simple answer for each of the constituencies. For example, for the financial planners, the answer might be, "we will partner with you to simply conservation easements and management for those clients who are interested in employing this type of financial benefit programs".
