Service Program - Rules & Regulations
It shall be the policy of Weston's Select Board to provide an opportunity for certain persons over the age of 60, veterans, and disabled adults to provide services to the Town of Weston in exchange for compensation which is to be applied to the real property tax obligation of said person. This policy establishes the terms and conditions of this Weston Service program.
- Participants in this program must:
- Be 60 years of age or older at the time services are provided to the Town, a veteran, or a disabled adult
- Be domiciled and reside in Weston
- Be an owner of the property to which a reduction in real estate taxes may be granted
In the case of joint or multiple owners, each may be allowed to provide service, but the combined total reduction in dollars on a domicile shall not exceed $1,350.00 per fiscal year unless a higher amount is approved in writing by the Town Manager.
The application can be found as Attachment A to the Weston Service Program Policy (PDF). It shall be filed by a taxpayer seeking to participate in the program. Said application must be filed each year the applicant wishes to participate in the Weston Service Program.
Applications are due on June 1st of each year for priority consideration. Applications will be accepted after June 1st on a rolling basis as space allows but hours worked need to be completed by June 30th of the following calendar year. A copy of the applicant’s most recent federal income tax form shall be provided by an applicant, as well as a copy of their property tax bill indicating they are the owner of the property.
The administration of this program shall be under the direction of the Town Manager who may delegate selection and assignment of volunteers to the Director of the Council on Aging, in consultation with the Director of Veterans Services.
