Assessor ‘s meeting with our vendor Mayflower Valuations on Friday April 30th at the town hall from 8:30-3:30 to continue working on the revaluation, field work, and data entry.
All residents may preregister to book an appointment at a mass vaccination site. At mass.gov/COVIDVaccine. The available vaccination sites are listed on the website.
The full timeline for group availability may be found on mass.gov/COVIDVaccinePhases.
To help older people and others who are unable to use the form, family members, caregivers, or other companions can fill out the form on behalf of someone else. People who do not have internet access or someone to fill the form out for them can call 2-1-1 to preregister.
If you are not yet eligible and you sign up, your signup will be valid but you will not be offered appointments until you are eligible. There is no advantage to preregistering before you are eligible.
Massachusetts receives a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine doses from the federal government each week. Due to high demand and very limited supply, there are a limited number of appointments available for eligible people. Please keep in mind that it could take several weeks or longer to be contacted with an opportunity to schedule your appointment.
Because the Federal Pharmacy program has been given a larger share of the vaccine sent to Massachusetts, more and more pharmacies will have more appointments available. We are recommending that you try ALL available avenues to find a vaccination appointment.

In order to help us all to stay connected during power outages, severe storms or another type of emergency, it is wise to make sure that we have someone in town who we can contact for help.
We are asking everyone to consider setting up an ”Emergency Buddy”. This can be a relative, a neighbor or a friend with whom you can get in touch. This way at least two households stay connected. It does not have to be a long, involved conversation. Something along the lines of “I just wanted to make sure you are ok” can make a huge difference to someone who may be feeling anxious or isolated.
This is not just for seniors – it is for all of us. Everyone will benefit from the act of reaching out to someone else during these stressful times.
We have extraordinary technology available to us, but there are times when it is simply not accessible. A personal connection can make all the difference.
Of course, for a life-threatening emergency, 911 is your first contact. But if the situation is something that can remedied without emergency services, your “Emergency Buddy” can be an important link in keeping our community safer.
Questions? Call Ellie Lovejoy at 413 528-1798 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Town of Mount Washington wants to keep everyone up to date on important Town-related information. For that purpose, we regularly send out pertinent information by email. If you are a resident or property owner and would like to be included in those emails, please contact Elisabeth Lem at email@example.com. If we have your contact information, but you have not received messages in the past, please check your spam/junk folder and label the message received thru Mailchimp as “not junk”.
The Town also maintains an emergency telephone outreach service, with 113 contacts listed. The service is only used for emergencies and important alerts. If you are not currently receiving these calls but would like to be added, please send an email to Brian Tobin at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call him at 413-528-3204. Each contact may include up to five telephone numbers.

TO ALL PROPERTY OWNERS AND GUESTS IN MOUNT WASHINGTON
The Board of Health is reminding everyone that SOCIAL DISTANCING is critical to avoiding spreading the COVID-19 virus. When you are exercising, you are breathing harder and potentially exposing people in your proximity to contamination. If you are out walking, jogging or bicycling, please be careful about respecting distance requirements for others who are also exercising.
USING OUR ROADS ON FOOT OR BICYCLE REQUIRES CAUTION. Our roads are narrow, have little or no room on the sides and frequently have low visibility around curves. Running, walking, or riding in low-light environments REQUIRES reflective clothing and/or lights. Moving rapidly from sunlight to shadow can make you difficult to see.
Stay aware, stay safe.

Board of Assessors
September 9, 2019
Dear Property Owner(s):
Mount Washington is currently undergoing a property re-inspection program to satisfy the requirements of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. Properties that have not been inspected in the past nine years have been coded for a regular, cyclical inspection.
The purpose of the inspection process is to verify the data in which the assessed values are in part based. Since soundly based equitable assessments require accurate property data, we ask that you permit us to inspect your property. A complete inspection consists of an exterior as well as an interior inspection of your property. Typically these inspections take a few minutes and consist of a walkthrough of your basement and living areas.
The Town of Mount Washington Board of Assessors has retained contracted services with Mayflower Valuation, Ltd to assist us in this effort; representative(s) of this company will be conducting these inspections. Over the next several weeks, one of the representatives will visit your home. If no one is home or you wish to not have an interior inspection, the representative will do an exterior measurement of the buildings on your land. If you prefer to have an appointment please contact the Assessor’s at 413-528-2686. The two dates available for appointments are October 19th and October 26th between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM.
Names of the Property Inspectors are:
Make and Model of Vehicle: 2008 Audi (Blue) MA Plate Number: 9RD590
Make and Model of Vehicle: 2017 Cadillac XT5 (White) MA Plate Number: 193TJ6
Both representatives will have a photo id as well as a copy of this letter. Our local Chief of Police and our Constable will also be informed.
It is mutually beneficial that we view property to ensure accurate information. Your assistance in this effort is greatly appreciated as we strive to maintain accuracy of our parcel data.
