Hearing Scheduled on Seekonk Tax Rate
It will take place during the Board of Selectmen meeting on Wednesday. Also at the meeting, selectmen will determine whether to begin contract negotiations with Public Works Superintendent Bob Lamourex.
Seekonk residents have an opportunity Wednesday evening to share their opinions with town leaders on the 2013 property tax rate and what the split should be between commercial and residential owners.
A public hearing on the tax rate is scheduled to take place during the Board of Selectmen meeting, which is expected to begin at 6 p.m. at Town Hall. The Board of Assessors will also attend the hearing.
A vote on the tax rate will take place at the Dec. 19 selectmen meeting.
Other items on the agenda include decisions on whether to begin contract renewal negotiations with town Engineer David Cabral and Public Works Superintendent Bob Lamoureux. Some Lamoureux supporters are concerned about whether a majority of the selectmen wants him to return after his contract expires at the end of June.
The selectmen will also vote on an unspecified amendment to the town's administrative policy on harassment.
Following the public portion of the meeting, the selectmen are expected to vote on a new contract for Fire Chief Alan Jack.
