Mental Health First Aid Information session Tuesday, December 2, 2014, 7-8:30 PM in the Lexington High School Science Lecture Hall.
Proposed Fiscal Year 2015 assessed property values have been posted. You can review your proposed assessment online (click "Enter Online Database" button on the Welcome screen) or at the Assessing Department in the Town Office Building, 1625 Massachusetts Ave. A postcard has been mailed to all Lexington property owners. Beginning November 19 and ending November 25, you will be able to review your proposed assessment and property record card, and raise any concerns before final values are set. This does not take away the ability to file an abatement application when you receive your 3rd quarter tax bill on or about December 31.
