The Andover Selectboard meetings have changed location. On the first Tuesday of the month the board will meet at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall and on the second and third Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in the Town Office. The last Wednesday of the month is the Selectboard Workshop at the Town Office. No official business is conducted at the workshops. It allows time for the board to review paperwork, mail and work on taxes together, which includes updating property transfers, map, lot changes which are a year-round ongoing project.
Want to get ahead of the tax bill? Did you know that you can make a payment on your tax bill at any time of the year? Yes, you can! Just stop in the Town Office. Melinda, Mary or Barb can help you.
If you're worried about increasing taxes, and who isn't? You can have an impact! Every time you recycle or compost, you are saving money by helping reduce costs at the Transfer Station. Recycling saves you tax money! Ask a Transfer Station Attendant or the Town Office for more information on how to recycle.
The Andover Transfer Station is looking for part-time fill in help – mostly Saturday mornings during the summer. Attendants must be 16 years or older. Spread the word. Applications can be filled out at the Town Office.

Sympathy is extended to the family of Maxine Dresser Thurston, who died last week in an automobile accident in Vermont. Maxine grew up in Andover and visited here often staying at her family home on North Main Street. She always had a joke and laughter was, I think, her trademark. There will be a Celebration of the Life of Maxine on Saturday, June 22, at 2 p.m. at the First Congregational Church followed by a reception in the CEB.
