The public comment days are June 15, 22, and July 20th, all from 9am-12pm.  To participate, a person must send an email to the SEC as directed in this Notice of Final of Adjudicative Hearings and Notice of Public Statement Hearings.

 
Caution: Zero Day Attack Concerning Email Attachments

Be advised - there is a new Zero Day Attack concerning email attachments (specifically Microsoft Word documents). Until this issue gets resolved you are cautioned to not send or open any email that has a Word document attached. Here are the details of the advisory:
 
Potential Business Impact
We are writing to inform all Microsoft Office users of a new zero-day attack that installs malware onto fully patched systems running Microsoft’s operating system via an Office vulnerability.  We recommend refraining from sending or opening any Word documents via email.

 
This advisory is for Word attachments but it is likely it will eventually mutate to the other Microsoft Office components such as Excel, Publisher and Access.


 
Donation Presented to Selectmen


Pictured above L-R: Regina Adams, Libby Newall, Maurice and Pamela Schofield and Selectman Neil Irvine.

 
On Thursday, March 23rd, the Selectmen were presented with a check for $613 from the fundraising efforts of the Ellacoya Chapter #43 of Easter Star, for which residents Maurice, also a veteran, and Pamela Schofield are members.  This money will be used for the creation of the New Hampton Veteran’s Memorial for wars since the Vietnam Conflict to be located on the property where the Public Safety Building is located.
 
Beware of Two Telephone Scams
Please be aware of a new VISA & MasterCard Credit Card SCAM being utilized in the Midwest currently and making its way across our country.  This Scam is very well thought out and very successful as the individual (scammer) provides the caller all the information pertaining to their Credit Card except for the one piece of information they are looking for.  Note the callers do not ask you for your credit card number as they already have it.

Click here to read details on how this Scam works.

Another Apparent Scam Circulating

We have recently received a report of another possible scam where the calls being made are coming from Washington DC, Virginia, and restricted numbers.  When the person receiving the calls dials the numbers back they are told that because they have not requested assistance from the “U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services” they are being awarded a grant, somewhere between $6,000 - $10,000.  Then they are asked for bank account information so the money can be direct deposited into their account. 
 
Always be careful with your information!!!
 

Proposed Legislation Could Have a Significant Impact to Your Tax Bill

Selectman Neil Irvine before the State Legislative Committee

PROPOSED LEGISLATION THAT COULD HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON YOUR TAX BILL PLEASE WRITE TO YOUR LEGISLATOR AND
THE MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND ENERGY COMMITTEE.

 
On January 25, 2017, Neil Irvine, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen spoke before the State Legislative Committee for the House Science, Technology & Energy Committee on HB 324, which seeks to impose upon the municipalities a NH Department of Revenue assessment as to the valuation of utility property in our community.  As Chairman of the Selectboard for the Town of New Hampton, representing both the opinion of the Selectboard and the interests of the residents and taxpayers of New Hampton, he spoke in opposition of HB 324 and asked the committee to vote the bill as “Inexpedient to Legislate” in other words kill the bill.

Adoption of this legislation would create an undue burden on all of the other taxpayers in New Hampton. Based on the 2016 assessments, it would result in a decrease in the assessed value of Utility property in New Hampton of approximately $18.1 million, with a corresponding drop in revenue, in one year, of approximately $285,000 to the Town and the subsequent decrease in services or increase in taxes for the remaining taxpayers.

Do the Utilities anticipate losing their appeal at the Supreme Court and are now seeking, through Utility friendly legislators, to have the DRA assessments, which are significantly less, implemented by the legislature?  We await the decision of the NH Supreme Court, which we anticipate will uphold the decision by the BTLA that discredits the DRA utility assessments.
