The Town of Burrillville has requested proposals for an independent advisory opinion on behalf of the Burrillville Assessor that renders an opinion as to a proposed power plant’s impact on property values in the Town of Burrillville and on the abutters. On Tuesday, July 26, 2016 at 5:00 p.m., the Town Council will meet in special session to award the bid for this service. The meeting will be in Council Chambers at the Town building and is, of course, open to the public.
The Town’s study will be the basis for the Tax Assessor’s advisory opinion ordered by the Energy Facility Siting Board. When complete, the report will be available to all interested parties.
