Cheshire Stays With Single Tax Rate
The Board of Selectmen on Tuesday voted to stay with a single property tax rate for fiscal 2021.

Her statements came after a discussion about splitting the rate to shift more of the tax burden to the commercial and industrial side. Cheshire has historically maintained a single tax rate.
