Mission Statement

The Treasurer/Collector’s office is responsible for providing secure and accurate collection, disbursement, and investment of all Town funds.  Such funds include real estate, personal property, excise, and betterments as committed to us by the Assessors, as well as all water/sewer charges, state aid or reimbursement, and all other various departmental receipts of the Town.  The Treasurer/Collector also handles the administration of Town Meeting authorized debt.  The Treasurer/Collector must make an annual accounting for all receipts and disbursements and report on their official acts.

This office processes the payroll for all Town employees, as well as coordinates the administration of benefits for eligible employees.  We are the liaison to vendors for group health, retirement, dental, life, and supplemental insurances.  

It is the mission of this department that its officers remain faithful to their oaths of office by serving in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the by-laws of the Town while maintaining high ethical standards. ~Customer service is a primary function of the office and all members of the public should expect to be treated with courtesy and respect. ~
