How to reach your police

A concern has been expressed to me that some citizens have come to the station and experienced difficulty reaching a police officer.  I want to apologize for this and assure the public we are committed to serving you to the best of our ability.  We recently lost our administrative assistant so there may not be anyone in the office during the day to answer the door or phone.  Your police department is also currently being down sized and losing full time police officer positions which may add to this challenge and impact our availability.

We will make every effort to make ourselves available to the public and limit the reduction in services, but please be patient.   If you come to the station and no one answers the door there is a gray call box to the right of the door.  If you pick up the phone it will connect you with our dispatch center who will send an officer to meet you.  If you call and no one answers the phone please leave a message or call 435-7211 to reach our dispatch center directly.  We currently have office hours Monday and Tuesday 1:00pm-6:00pm.

I apologize for any inconvenience you may experience, we remain committed to serving you and will continue to evaluate ways to better serve you.


Chief Jeffrey M. Cain

2016 4th quarter sewer bills were mailed January 26, 2017

The due date is February 27, 2017

To help clarify questions regarding the actual time frame that the sewer bills cover, we have changed the information on the quarterly billing document, to now reflect the actual dates of consumption.  Sewer usage fees are based on water consumption readings provided by Pennichuck.

Starting with the 4th Quarter billing, you will see a change showing the time frame of August 29, 2016 through November 28, 2016 for the 4th Quarter 2016.  These are the actual dates of water usage from Pennichuck, used for the 4th Quarter Sewer billing.  Previously, the date information would have shown the 4th Quarter as October 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016, which is the Fiscal Quarter of the sewer billing cycle, not the water consumption dates.

While we know this change may be confusing, you can take the billed units from your Pennichuck water bills from:

  • December 20, 2015 to February 23, 2016 – should total the usage for the 1st Quarter 2016 Sewer Billing
  • February 23, 2016 to May 23, 2016 – should total the usage for the 2nd Quarter 2016 Sewer Billing
  • May 23, 2016 to August 29, 2016 – should total the usage for the 3rd Quarter 2016 Sewer Billing
  • August 29, 2016 to November 28, 2016 – should total the usage for the 4th Quarter Sewer Billing

Please note that this time frame is a general guide to look back to show the units that you were billed for in 2016.  There could be a few accounts that Pennichuck read the meter on the day before, or the day after what is listed, as not every account was read on the same day.

The units used after November 28, 2016 to December 2016, will be charged in 2017 on the 1st Quarter 2017 Sewer Billing.
