THE SECRETIVE MAYOR AND COUNCIL-A few weeks ago we discovered that the City of
Gloucester has a special water rate for senior citizens age 65 and older. In fact, we learned that this reduction, 50 percent off the minimum usage rate, has been available for some time.
When we asked a city worker where we could obtain an application we were told they were available at the tax office. We stopped on Thursday, January 14, but the tax office was closed because of the tax sale that day. The same day we asked the clerk for the application at the municipal office and she said we could only obtain one at the tax office (which was closed). Why the application isn’t accessible at the clerk’s office or online is a mystery. You would think too it would be mailed out annually to the residents with the yearly tax bills.
