Important Departmental Messages
From the Office of the Assessor
Over the next several months, we will be conducting inspections of houses in our own as required by the Department of Revenue. Your house may be on the inspection list. The purpose of these visits is to perform a cyclical inspection to verify that the information on our property record cards is accurate and up to date.
These inspections will be conducted by Mayflower Valuation. They are professionally trained, will have identification displayed on their person and their vehicles, and will have a letter on them.

From the DPW
Please be advised that precipitation, as recorded at the Holyoke Water Pollution Control Facility, within the previous 4 hours resulted in combined sewer overflow discharges from the City of Holyoke’s sewage collection system to the Connecticut River. These discharges may have negative water quality impacts downstream including the Connecticut River adjacent to your community. Swimming, fishing, boating and other uses which may involve water contact is discouraged. This CSO issue has no adverse effects on public drinking water.

Estas descargas pueden tener impactos negativos en la calidad del agua río abajo, incluido el río Connecticut adyacente a su comunidad. Se desaconseja nadar, pescar, pasear en bote y otros usos que puedan implicar el contacto con el agua. Respecto al asunto con CSO, no afecta negativamente el agua potable pública.
