Town of Lanesborough
Important Information Regarding Your Tax Bill
Under “An Act to Address Challenges Faced by Municipalities and State Authorities Resulting From COVID-19,” Chapter 53 of the Acts of 2020, the Town of Lanesborough has adopted local options to extend due dates for real and personal property tax payments and applications for exemptions and a waiver of interest on certain municipal tax and other bills. See below.
1. The due date of your real and personal property tax bill has been extended to June 1, 2020. June 1, 2020 is the new due date even if the due date for payment on your previously mailed tax bill is May 1, 2020.
2. The due date for applications for property tax exemptions has also been extended to June 1, 2020. June 1, 2020 is the new due date even if the due date for applications on your previously mailed tax bill is April 1, 2020.
This extension applies to applications for the exemptions listed in the third paragraph of G.L. c. 59, §59, including exemptions under clauses 17, 17C, 17C1/2 and 17D (seniors, surviving spouses, minor children of deceased parent); 18 (financial hardship – activated military, age and infirmity); 22, 22A, 22B, 22C, 22D, 22E, 22F and 22H (veterans, surviving spouses and surviving parents); 37 and 37A (blind persons); 41, 41B, 41C and 41C1/2 (seniors); 42 and 43 (surviving spouse and minor children of firefighters/police officer killed in the line of duty); 52 (certain eligible seniors); 53 (certain eligible properties with septic systems); 56 (National Guard and reservists on active duty in foreign countries); and 57 (local option tax rebates). This extension also automatically applies to applications for residential exemptions under G.L. c. 59, §5C, for small commercial exemptions under G.L. c. 59, §5I and for deferrals under G.L. c. 59, §5, clauses 41A (seniors) and 18A (poverty or financial hardship due to change to active military).
3. The Town of Lanesborough has also voted to waive interest and other penalties for late payment of any excise, tax, betterment assessment or apportionment thereof, water rate or annual sewer use or other charge added to a tax for any payments with a due date on or after March 10, 2020 where payment is made late but before June 30, 2020. This applies to late payments of bills that have a due date of March 10, 2020 or after, when such bills are paid late but paid on or before June 30, 2020. This wavier of interest does not apply to bills with due dates before March 10, 2020 or if the bill is not paid before June 30, 2020.
NOTE – If the municipal offices are closed on the June 1, 2020 extended due date for tax payments or filing of exemption applications as a result of the outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus or the declaration of a state of emergency issued by the governor on March 10, 2020, the due dates for tax payments and applications for exemptions are not extended – they will be due on June 1, 2020 even if the municipal offices are closed. (See section 10(b) of the Act).
Tax payments can be paid on-line at, placed in the drop box outside of the Newton Memorial Town Hall or mailed to P.O. Box 1492, 83 North Main Street, Lanesborough, MA 01237.

I'm asking people, who are fun dog people, to join the challenge of posting a picture of their dog(s).Only one photo, no description. The goal is to flood FB with positive dog pictures. Please copy the text into your status, post one photo of your dog and watch for some great photos! (Dog friends, jump right in.)❤️❤️
(In no way is this a ploy to identify unlicensed dogs in town) 😈😂

Rain or shine!

Come out and celebrate the Tigers win! There will be a parade today in Lanesborough from Greylock Federal down Route 7 at 3pm!!


I’d like to address a viral facebook post that has recently been brought to my attention.

The author of the post writes.
“After multiple calls to Pittsfield police and lanesborough police and this piece of sh*t hasn’t gotten in trouble”.

The post is in regards to a dog the author claims is being neglected by its owner.

The fact is that lanesborough police/ Animal control had met with the owner and the dog prior to this viral post in an unrelated matter and hadn’t observed any cause for concern of neglect or abuse. The dog appears to be well cared for despite some of the opinions and mob mentality shown in that post.

It’s disappointing that this post has generated
412 shares and 92
emojis but despite the authors claim that multiple people have called to complain the fact is not one single person has called to report this to the lanesborough police or animal control.

If you need to report an emergency please call 911 or the appropriate department directly as we do not monitor Facebook 24/7.

At a minimum this dogs basic needs are being met. As far as the claims of abuse and being left outside too long, again, not a single call to report an issue other than a “barking dog” complaint on October 30th that was unfounded.

Hello Lanesboro animal lovers. I am not sure what type of wild cats these are but wanted to share so we can all be aware. This morning we had both of them in our back yard together fairly close to the house and in daylight. Haven’t seen them before but have heard a lot of cries at night.

Im hear to say I’m very disappointed in Pittsfield police department/ animal control along with lanesborough!! The fact nothing still hasn’t been done about a dog is heartbreaking. It is getting colder and colder outside as the days/nights go by. There’s a poor dog that’s been outside 24/7 both in the summer time and now as winter is coming this poor dog is still outside all day and all night. Crying, whining, not being socialized, I work ALOT across the street from this gentleman’s house and not once have I seen him get fed or get water. I always thought this poor baby was going inside but as I’ve paid more and more attention, he’s outside constantly. He is skinnier now than he’s ever been, he does nothing but pace in his cage. Many people have reported this man, between the employees at the company that is right next door to him along with myself and many many others and nothing has been done. I’ve personally seen this man and his grandson, on 4th of July, pull on this dog til he choked, cried, just to push him into the lake. The dog In the process had tried with all his strength to stop them, pulling away from them and everything. I’ve seen the boy tease him, along with both the grandfather and grandson hit and abuse this poor dog. The only time the boy comes near the dog, is too take away the only toys he has in his cage, tease him with these toys and make him think he’s gonna play, just for the boy to go inside with the toys and leave the dog alone. I’m sorry I can understand summer time but it’s getting colder and colder out now!! THIS IS ALL ABUSE AND SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE.
Lost DOG! Angelo! Loved, family cattle dog. Tan and black.No tail. Skittish. May approach if someone sits down. Lost since August 2019 (in Vermont) REWARD for safe return. Thankyou!!! Please call 406 253 6154 if seen/found. Thank you!!!
Why, oh why were the pool bags/ receptacles taken down around the park on Narragansett?????
MACK IS HOME! Found a little worse for wear but safe! TY all for sharing!
My dog Mack is missing. He bolted on Balance Rock Road because of the fireworks. He's really scared. Please let me know if you see him.

Honeybee swarms are pretty calm, and we are trying to lure them back home but they flew off very quickly If you see a swarm of honeybees (like photo attached) around town PLEASE let us know, PLEASE do not spray them- we will come get them!!
