Your first and second quarter bills are always preliminary because we have not received certification of our values from the Department of Revenue. This year is a Department Of Revenue (DOR) recertification year so they will be doing a field audit and review of all assessed values which takes time. DOR is anticipated to certify its rates in late September. In addition the FY 2019 tax rate will be set by the Board of Selectmen in November. If you’d like more information on how the tax rate is set please click HERE. Once we’ve received the certified assessed values and the BOS have voted a tax rate, a final calculation of tax due will be completed. The third and fourth quarter tax bills will be adjusted and the preliminary amounts paid will be fully credited.
Some taxpayers are seeing larger amounts due. The market escalation indicates values changes are necessary and some taxpayers are seeing significant changes. These changes are based upon the current market conditions. Under the guidelines set by the Department of Revenue and Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 59; assessments must reflect “100% full and fair cash valuation.” Essentially, assessments need to be based on what similar properties are selling for in the current real estate market.
No. This bill does not include the debt exclusion for the new Kennedy Middle School. However, this bill does include past debt exclusions for the Community Senior Center, High School, and Wilson Middle School.

The term aggregation is used because all of Natick’s electrical load is combined, or aggregated, and given to the same electricity supplier. This allows Natick to get the best price possible from that electricity supplier.
Natick has chosen ConEdison Solutions as the new electricity supplier for the community. The Town used a competitive bidding process to select ConEdison Solutions and make sure that you get the best possible price for your electricity supply.
Savings: Natick has negotiated an electricity supply price on behalf of the Town with the goal of beating NSTAR's price, on average, over the course of the 24-month contract. At program launch on January 1, 2015, the program price beats NSTAR's price. Participants will begin to see savings as of their first meter read after launch. Because NSTAR's prices change frequently, there may be months when the program price is higher than the NSTAR price.
Predictability: Natick has negotiated a 24-month contract with ConEdison Solutions on your behalf, which means your electricity supply price will not change during that time. (NSTAR prices change every six months and can go up, down, or stay the same.)
Choice: In addition to giving you an alternative to NSTAR, the program also allows you to choose a 100% green energy option fir less than NSTAR Basic.
All eligible NSTAR Basic Service electricity customers will be automatically enrolled and eligible for savings through the program.
If you want to opt out of the program before it begins, sign and date the postcard that you receive in the mail, then place it in the mail within 30 days of the postmark on the envelope that contains it.
To opt out after the program begins, contact ConEdison Solutions at 1-866-469-8361 and tell them you want to opt out of the Natick Community Choice Electricity Supply Program.
We recommend that you carefully check the terms and conditions of your supplier agreement. Your ability to terminate your agreement with your supplier may be restricted.
After the program starts, the Supplier Services part of your bill will indicate that your electricity is now being supplied by ConEdison Solutions. The other components of your bill will not change.
If you wish to have all portions of your electric bill included in budget billing, you should opt out of the program and remain on NSTAR Basic Service.
