Rockport postpones elections

Apr 07, 2020

Rockport — The town of Rockport has postponed the annual town meeting, the election previously scheduled for June 9, and the open portion of the town meeting previously scheduled for June 10. This postponement extends other deadlines such as the deadline for citizen petitions and any action on submitted petitions as well as the deadline for candidates to submit nomination papers for Select Board and School Board positions.

The Select Board has voted to waive interest on personal property and real estate taxes for 30 days. The due date for taxes remains April 15; however, interest will not accrue until May 16. The Board has also given the Town Manager authorization to waive interest on taxes for up to another 60 days if necessary.
