Outstanding Water Bills

The Assessors’ and Treasurer/Collector’s offices are working to prepare the 2018 Real Estate file for mailing at the end of December. This is a reminder that all unpaid Water bills over thirty days will become a lien on your real estate bill, with a $25 lien fee if the balance exceeds $100. All balances that were due prior to December 1st   will be liened. These liens can affect your monthly escrow, as many mortgage companies will not pay outstanding liens. Delinquent balances will be moved to Real Estate accounts on December 15th. Please take a moment to update your mailing address with the Water department to insure delivery of your water bill. If you have any questions, please call the Water Department at 781-545-8735 or the Treasurer/Collector’s office at 781-545-8718.
