Message to Customers of the Sharon Water System:

On June 4th and 5th, the Sharon Sewer and Water Commission will be flushing the water mains between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. On June 4th, all lines north of West Main Street including West Main and Hospital Hill will be completed. The remainder of the system will be flushed on June 5th.

Customers can expect to experience intermittent decreases of water pressure with the potential for discolored water.  Limiting water consumption will help to minimize the impact on individual service lines. It is also advisable to refrain from doing laundry, as potential iron and manganese slugs could result in staining.

If any customers notice that their water is discolored or turbid after 4:00 PM they should run their water until it clears before consumption or laundry.  Past experience has shown water quality to return to normal within a couple of hours.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this might cause you, and thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions or concerns, please call VRI at 364-0457.

Town of Canaan(Falls Village)

The following Ordinance was enacted at a Town Meeting held on May 22, 2018:

Tax Incentive Ordinance

Purpose:  The purpose of this policy is to provide incentives to attract new businesses to the Town of Canaan, to rehabilitate buildings that are now under-utilized or vacant, to build employment within the town and to enhance our tax base. The areas covered by this policy are: 

1. Those located within or directly abutting the recent streetscaping project and within the historical district. 

2.  Those within the Town of Canaan proper outside of the historical district.

The Board of Selectmen would have the power to enter into an agreement to abate taxes if the properties satisfy the following requirements:

1. The improvements are for retail or business use.

2. The improvements are for office use.

3. Mixed use may be permitted.

4. The improvements are in keeping with the historical designation of the town.

5.  The total cost of improvements is a minimum of $100,000.

6.     Special consideration shall be given to distressed properties or those not currently on the tax rolls of the town.

Any such tax abatement given would be presented to the Board of Finance after the approval of the Board of Selectman for their approval.  Approval of both bodies is required.

The abatement would be for three years and would be a 50% reduction in property taxes. The rationale of the three years is to allow for construction and improvement of the property in year one and establishing the business/businesses over the next two years realizing that reaching profitability in new ventures takes, on average, this time period. The abatement would commence on proof of expenditure and completion of the renovation.

The policy would expire three years after enactment and would not be a permanent policy of the town, notwithstanding that the town could extend the policy if so recommended by both the Board of Finance and Board of Selectmen.

In addition, this policy would also extend to any business in the Town of Canaan proper who would expand their facilities or construct new ones whereby there would be an identifiable increase of employment thereby and such construction or improvement would be at least $100,000.

Any applicant must not be in arrears on tax payments.  Also, if the taxes are not paid timely in the period of abatement, the abatement would be canceled.
