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.

BEWARE - Report of Man Impersonating a Police Officer

New Hampton Police are investigating a report of a person impersonating a police officer. A female resident stated that on 11/18/17 in the morning, she was pulled over on NH Rt 132N in New Hampton by a new Silver Dodge Charger, completely unmarked except for two blue lights in the grill. There was no front license plate. She described the person who approached her as a male, approximately 6'1" or 6'2", average build, dark hair, with a "man bun". Approximate age about 25-35 years old.

She stated that her and her daughter, who was her passenger identified the subject as caucasian male but had feminine qualities in his mannerism and his voice. He also had a little scruff type beard on his chin area. He was dressed in a black collared sweatshirt type shirt and gray pants.

During the interaction the “officer” did not ask for the drivers ID but did ask for the passengers ID as he believed her to be under 18 and required  to have seat belt on.

Anyone with information please contact New Hampton PD 603-744-5423.

Update on Drought Emergency in NH

Drought Emergency in New Hampshire
Recommended Measures for New Hampshire Residents

 
Southern New Hampshire is experiencing a drought emergency. Southern New Hampshire has received about 50% of its normal rainfall over the last six months.  Streamflow and groundwater levels are at historic low levels. Some New Hampshire residents on private wells, as well as some community water systems are experiencing water supply shortages. More widespread shortages are imminent if rainfall does not replenish our lakes, streams and groundwater supplies before winter weather sets in, as our water resources will probably not be substantially refilled until after the snowmelt during the spring of 2017. The drought condition is a very slow-moving natural disaster that may continue to worsen.

All New Hampshire residents and businesses are asked to reduce water use and be prepared for the effects of drought.

Concord, NH - A combination of a below average snowpack in the spring, little precipitation to recharge the groundwater, an increase of evapotranspiration in the summer, and the inability of New Hampshire watersheds to store large volumes of water due to their geology has landed the northern half of the state in abnormally dry conditions and the southern half in severe drought. During the July 22, 2016 meeting of the New Hampshire Drought Management Team (DMT), State Climatologist, Mary Stampone, indicated that relief was not in the near future and drought conditions will likely persist into the fall. As a result of the current conditions and the long-term forecast, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) is urging New Hampshire residents to conserve water as long as drought conditions persist.
 
To protect water supplies, over one hundred public water systems in New Hampshire have implemented outdoor water use restrictions or bans in their service areas. If you reside in an area of severe drought, which currently includes the following counties: Belknap, Cheshire, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Strafford and Sullivan, and your water supplier has not issued a restriction or if you are a private homeowner on your own well, NHDES urges you to refrain from using water outdoors except for hand watering of vegetable gardens until precipitation mitigates drought conditions.
