ACTON — Town Manager John Mangiaratti announces that contactless town services for the Land Use Department and Collector’s Office will now be available for residents.

Marty Abbott, a clerk for the Assessor Office, will be available to meet with residents periodically as well in an outside tent located in the rear parking lot of Town Hall. Dates and times will be posted on the town’s website, www.actonma.gov, and the tent will be closed should lightning occur.
At the tent, Abbott will be able to help residents sign their veteran’s card, get answers to questions about your home’s assessed value, schedule an appointment to review your exemption eligibility and submit paperwork for a motor vehicle abatement.
