The second part of tax notices are being sent out today, February 19, 2019.  Some of you will receive notices for very minor amounts.  We are working with our new software prgram to remedy this.  Those paid in full will not receive a notice or the SPRING 2019 QUAMPHEGAN newsletter.  It is available on our Town website under "Living in South Berwick".  Copies are also available in the Town Clerk's office.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out.
