Good Afternoon,

sun

There is not much new to be learned from the Covid numbers.  Overall in the state it looks like we have at least leveled off. The numbers reported in Easton have fallen but again it is hard to know what to make of it.

A reminder from the Tax Collector’s Office that tax bills will be sent out late June and are due July 1, 2022 and payable without interest until August 1, 2022.  Taxes will be available for viewing and payment online at www.eastonct.gov as of July 1st.   If you closed on a property or refinanced during the months of May, June, or July, and your taxes are not escrowed through your bank, and you did not receive a real estate property tax bill by July 1, 2022, please contact our office.  If you have any additional questions, please contact the tax office via email at kkot@eastonct.gov or by phone at 203-268-6291, Ext. 140.

Union Cemetery volunteer clean-up continues on June 18th from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. with the emphasis on removing the brush and vegetation around the headstones to allow mowers access. Volunteers need to bring their own tools. Brush cutters, clippers, and heavy-duty gloves. There is a good deal of poison ivy and poison sumac growing, long sleeves are highly recommended.
