Gilford went through property reassessments this year and boat slips went up about 50% to march huge increases in sales prices. As the taxes go up, so do the rents. There was a $500 increase at...

Budget?

If you "live" in an SB2 town you can vote absentee in March/April and have a say in the local budget, and thus your local taxes. You can also vote absentee in the September primary.

BTW Carbon monoxide is the poisonous gas that you have detectors for. That would be CO.

CO2 is carbon dioxide, like they use in fire extinguishers and dairy bar whip cream dispensers.

I'm unaware of any filter for a forced hot water system, but the machinery should be serviced annually for best efficiency, new jets, etc. In the mean time, if it is cold out, it will cycle more...

The Winnipesaukee River sewer project runs from Moultonborough to West Alton, sending waste water to the WWTF in Franklin. Maybe someday we'll have a similar project for the Wolfeboro, Alton side of...
