Tax Collector
McKeon Makes
This Statement
Residents Urged to Pay Early in January to Avoid
End of the Month Rush; Interest Charged
After January 31
CNrNfMrfcat, Larry Shrplry—Phone Naugatuck INI
Naugatuck. Jan. 2 — Payment of
the flve-mlll property tax Is ex
pected to start In real earnest this
week, Tax Collector Patrick P.
McKeon said this morning.
Some property holders have al
ready paid this tax but most have
not yet done so. This levy is as
sessed only to residents of the in
side tax district.
Bills for it were sent out last
June with the July tax bills. Inter
est will be charged after Jan. 31.
Mr. McKeon urges residents to
pay early In January to avoid a
rush at the end of the month. The
money derived from the tax will
help carry the borough during the
llnal part of the fiscal year which
ends March 31, he said.
Moat of those owners who had
not paid taxes due last Dec. 31
made payment this month.
Board Meets Tonight
Only routine business is expected
to be transacted tonight at the
monthly meeting of the board of
Warden and burgesses.
Last month the board ordered the
borough attorney, Martin L. Caine,
to prepare a bill for submission to
the General Assembly requesting
the right to issue bonds to finance
as sewage disposal plant here.
Although the estimated cost of
the plant was not available last
month it may be received in time
for tonight’s session. The sewage
disposal plant is a postwar project
and if the assembly grants per
mission for the bond issue, it docs
not mean necessarily that the
board will be sought shortly after
permission is received. Warden Leo
J. Brophy said.
The warden feels that such per
mission should l)e secured in the
event that the end of the war in
Europe should occur suddenly end
the Vwii would be then in a better
position to start the project than
If it delayed the request for the
bond issuance.
The board is expected to act on
the requestor John Stevenson. Town
Hall janitor, for submission of a
bill to the General Assembly which
would provide a pension for him.
