BYRON — Residents at Monday’s annual town meeting will vote on whether to give a 10 percent discount on property taxes paid by Sept. 15.

They will also decide whether the town should charge 7 percent interest on taxes paid after Nov. 1.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. March 10 at the Coos Canyon Schoolhouse.

The Silver Lake Camp Owners Association is asking the town for $1,000 to help pay for a watershed survey of Roxbury Pond, association President Jim Wendt said.

On March 3, voters in Roxbury raised $3,000 for the survey.

“We want to look at all 26 square miles of the watershed to identify what sources are contributing to the lake’s contamination,” Wendt told Roxbury voters. “We’ve had a number of large rain events this year that washed a lot of debris into the lake. This past fall, there was an algae bloom that is acting as a harbinger of poorer conditions.”

The survey needs to be done now, “so we can figure out what needs to be done to keep the lake safe,” he said. The association has agreed to provide some money for the survey and is seeking donations.
