Property Tax Sales Off The Table
A tax sale of properties with delinquent taxes which had previously been scheduled for June will not be taking place, town Tax Collector Linda Sheffield confirmed to our reporter today, Monday, April 26; see our March 9 report Tax Sale Warrants Issued…
Linda said that all property owners had now responded and had made arrangements to pay off the back taxes they owed. “As long as they all keep to their arrangements, we’ll be fine.” Linda said. Good news for all concerned!

Update On Earth Weekend Spring Clean Up
We have been asked whether the Earth Weekend Spring Clean Up has been postponed as reported in today’s Register Citizen. In response to our query, Madeline McClave, emailed us the following:
“We’re not sure yet if we may be rescheduling the entire event or just set up a time to do the Cub Scouts tree planting, etc. separately.” Â Madeline went on to say that the Land Trust has a very busy schedule in May.
NewHartfordPlus was informed on Sunday that the the clean up has been cancelled. Â We will, of course, publish any changes in this status as they may become available.
In the meantime, we’d like to suggest one way we can all help clean up our environment:
“Pack It In, Pack It Out Plus!”
If we all make an effort to pack out that little bit more litter than we packed in, not only are we not littering, but we’re actually helping to leave a more picked-up area behind us, one small piece of litter at the time…
