Annual Report of the Treasurer Collector - FY 2021

Note: FY 2021 is last year (July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021). The report was prepared to cover the business for the FY 2021 period. This year’s report FY 2022 (July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022) is in preparation now and is normally available for distribution at the polls for the November election. Updated - 08/15/22

In Fiscal Year 2021, the Treasurer Collector’s office had many staff changes. The first change was our new Assistant Treasurer Collector, Marina Malamud. Marina has demonstrated her ability to learn quickly and has made several improvements since she started. Also, Patti Wyllie retired after 33 years with the Town of Franklin.

The Treasurer Collector’s office went Green! We now offer our residents the option to go paperless and for the residents’ convenience the Town is waiving the ACH fee when paying by electronic check.

Standard and Poor’s Ratings Services, a municipal credit rating agency, affirmed the Town’s AA+ bond rating again this fiscal year.

Standard and Poor’s stated “The rating reflects our opinion of Franklin’s history of balanced finances and strong reserve levels, supported by a very strong, growing and affluent property tax base, in addition to a strong management team that maintains several formalized financial policies and practices.”

During FY 2021, $209,381 was collected in back property taxes, interest and fees. Eighteen (18) property owners paid off all outstanding taxes and redeemed their properties out of tax title. We continue to pursue delinquent taxes through the foreclosure process and there are currently 20 properties in Land Court.

There were 1,615 Municipal Lien Certificates issued by the Treasurer-Collector’s office generating revenue of $80,350. Also collected was $4,673 in fees for duplicate bills and files that we supplied to tax services and escrow agents. During FY21, the Treasurer- Collector’s office printed and mailed 11,841 Real Estate Tax bills and 668 Personal Property Tax bills four times a year. We also sent out 34,152 Motor Vehicle Excise Tax bills, and 42,411 Utility bills. The following Demands were also printed and mailed, 541 Real Estate Tax, 110 Personal Property Tax, and 4,199 Motor Vehicle Excise Tax. There were 2,860 Motor Vehicle warrants issued in FY20. There were one (1) Betterment release (water, sewer and road). We also collected $110,432 for backflow testing and $59,496 for Sprinkler/Hydrant charges.

The Treasurer also acts as the town’s parking clerk. Our deputy collector, Kelley & Ryan Associates of Hopedale, handles the billing and collection of parking tickets. During FY21 we collected $5,163.70 for parking violations.

I would like to thank all town departments for the timely and accurate turnover of fees to the Treasurer-Collector’s office. I also would like to acknowledge my team, I am constantly impressed by your performance. Thank you for using your remarkable talents and skills to fuel our mutual efforts. I am really proud to be part of this team. Finally, I like to thank the residents of Franklin for their kindness and support.

Respectfully submitted,

Kerri A. Bertone

Franklin Annual Report - 2020: Treasurer Collector

Fiscal Year 2020 brought a lot of challenges due to COVID-19. Many operational changes had to take place in order to comply with the “new normal”. Thank goodness for the drive-up window at the municipal building. The drive-up window was also utilized so that residents could return their ballots directly to an employee.

Standard and Poor’s Ratings Services, a municipal credit rating agency, affirmed the Town’s AA+ bond rating again this fiscal year.

Standard and Poor’s stated 
“Our opinion of Franklin’s strong and balanced finances, supported by a very strong, growing, and affluent property tax base, in addition to a strong management team that maintains a number of formalized financial policies and practices. In addition, due to conservative capital-project management through the annual budget process, the town has maintained a favorable debt profile, in our view, coupled with manageable costs.”

During FY 2020, $149,000.00 was collected in back property taxes, interest and fees. Five property owners paid off all outstanding taxes and redeemed their properties out of tax title. We continue to pursue delinquent taxes through the foreclosure process and there are currently 20 properties in Land Court.

There were 1,350 Municipal Lien Certificates issued by the Treasurer-Collector’s office generating revenue of $67,525.00. Also collected was $3,600.00 in fees for duplicate bills and files that we supplied to tax services and escrow agents. During FY20, the Treasurer- Collector’s office printed and mailed 11,818 Real Estate Tax bills, 694 Personal Property Tax bills, 30,653 Motor Vehicle Excise Tax bills, and 42,326 Utility bills. The following Demands were also printed and mailed, 590 Real Estate Tax, 124 Personal Property Tax, and 4,424 Motor Vehicle Excise Tax. There were 2,984 Motor Vehicle warrants issued in FY20. There were 5 Betterment releases (water, sewer and road) generating revenue of $7,587.81. We also collected $96,213.24 for backflow testing and $56,872.83 for Sprinkler/Hydrant charges.

The Treasurer also acts as the town’s parking clerk. Our deputy collector, Kelley & Ryan Associates of Hopedale, handles the billing and collection of parking tickets. During FY20 we collected $20,393.56 for parking violations.

I would like to thank all town departments for the timely and accurate turnover of fees to the Treasurer-Collector’s office. I also would like to acknowledge my team, you made me believe once again that hard work and coordination can accomplish anything. I am really proud to be part of this team. Finally, I like to thank the citizens of Franklin for their kindness and support.

Respectfully submitted,

Kerri A. Bertone

Franklin Tax Payers: A Notice from the Treasurer/Collector's Office

A Notice from the Treasurer/Collector's Office

Dear Taxpayer,

Recently you received a 3rd quarter actual real estate tax bill that incorrectly calculated one day of interest on the amount due. 

If you pay your taxes through your mortgage company you do not need to take any action.

If you have already paid your bill, that interest will be reflected as a credit on your 4th quarter actual real estate tax bill in May.

If you have not paid yet, please discard that bill. A corrected 3rd quarter tax bill is currently being mailed to and will arrive by next week.  

To accommodate for this inconvenience we have extended the due date to February 19, 2021 without any interest or penalties.

The online payment portal has the correct amount due.  All taxpayers and citizens can pay the correct amount online. 

We apologize for any inconvenience.

These bills can be paid in a variety of ways:

Hello Franklin,

Our COVID-19 Information Portal is updated regularly with the latest information and resources. You can find it HERE.

Please find our Department Re-entry Updates attached below and visit our website and/or social media frequently for news and announcements.

Have a good weekend!

"Based on the escalating global COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Baker’s most recent Executive Orders, the Franklin Town and School Administration offices, as well as all Franklin public buildings will be closed to the public and most employees through May 18th, 2020. We are following the guidance coming from Governor Baker. We are working on a measured plan to initiate baby steps toward re-opening limited services that cannot be performed remotely, while keeping the safety of our employees and community at the forefront.

On May 11th, the following departments will be re-opening with limited staff and services as an initial phase in. Careful decision-making and return to work procedures will take place in the coming weeks, with safety as the top priority.

● The drive through window at the Municipal Building will be re-opening for service on May 11th for regular business hours. The window will serve as the point of contact for all municipal services for both the Town Clerk’s Office and the Treasurer/Collector. Cash will not be accepted at this time. The public will not be able to access the building in any way other than the drive through.
● The Library will be reopening with a skeleton crew for online orders and no contact pickup/dropoff of requested materials. Patrons can place material holds online or by phone. (limit of 5 items over the phone) Search our catalog at find.minlib.net , and limit the collection location to Franklin. Once you receive a text or email that your items are ready, visit the Library entrance at School Street. Hours will be Monday - Saturday 10am - 1pm. Please stay tuned to the Franklin Public Library websites for children's programming and other offerings that will be available to residents remotely.
● The DPW and Facilities Departments will begin with a soft opening on May 11th, with limited employees returning to work to assess and plan for the weeks ahead. Beginning May 18th, the DPW and custodial staff will be fully open, with work crews returning in one man vehicles where necessary. The DPW Administration Building will remain closed through May 18th.
● The Senior Center is aiming to develop a curbside lunch program for members to access Cafe prepared grab-and-go meals. The goal is to have this service available beginning June 1st, with the hope of adding the same service for breakfast in the future. More details will be released as they become available..
● On May 11th, we will begin a very limited phase in of staff at the Municipal Building. The building will not be open to the public.
● The Recycling Center is currently open regular business hours, with the addition of noon - 3pm on Thursday May 14th for yard waste only. Beginning May 18th, the Recycling Center will be open regular hours for full services. No cash or checks will be accepted. All residents who wish to use the recycling center for item drop off will need to go online prior to pay the required fee(s). A printed slip detailing the fees paid will be required to show proof of payment. The online payment portal for recycling fees is on our Viewpoint site.
● Curbside Clothing Recycling restarted the week of April 27th on your normal trash day. Please have bags out prior to 7am for pickup.
● All municipal parks and playgrounds will be closed to the public. Nature trails are OK to use.
● All public and private schools are closed through the end of the year. Childcare facilities (other than emergency centers for first responders) will be closed until June 29th.
● Trash and Recycling Pickup will continue to be picked up on their normal schedule.

A new Department Spotlight is available! Find it here and stay informed and connected with Town operations and services! #spotlight #finance #treasurercollector #learnmore

Chris has been Franklin's Finance Director since January 2018, having worked in the role for 23 years and as an auditor of municipalities for 10 years prior. The main functions of the Finance Department are to maintain the general ledger, manage payroll across the municipality payroll and handle all accounts payable.
Kerri Bertone has been the Treasurer/Collector since August of 2017. Prior to her employment in Franklin, Kerri worked in the private sector at Putnam Investments for 21 years as a senior operations manager. She joined Franklin's team in 2016 as an assistant.
Franklin is known for being pro-active with staff succession planning, and Kerri was completely prepared to assume the role after the legendary Town Treasurer/Collector, Jim Dacey, retired after nearly two decades in the position."

Attention Franklin Residents: Important Notice to Taxpayers

Important Notice to Taxpayers

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 Administrator has adopted two (2) local options to extend the due date for Real Estate and Personal Property (RE/PP) tax payments through June 1, 2020, as well as a waiver of interest on certain municipal tax and other bills (water, sewer, trash & excise), which are paid late, but on or before June 30, 2020.

1. Local Option #1: The due date for Real Estate and Personal Property tax bills has been extended to June 1, 2020. June 1, 2020 is the new due date even if the due date for payment on your enclosed or previously mailed tax bill is April 1, 2020 or May 1, 2020.

What does this Mean?

  • a. Every property owner in Franklin has one additional month to pay their RE/PP bill.
  • b. Beginning June 2, 2020, late fees and penalties will be assessed.


2. Local Option #2: The town has also optioned “to waive interest and other penalty 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 waiver 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. This waiver of late fees and penalty does not apply to bills with due dates before March 10, 2020 or if the bill is not paid by June 30

What does this mean?

  • a. The waiver of late fees and penalties applies to only water, sewer, trash & excise bills.
  • b. Late fees and penalties will be waived; provided payment is made on or before June 30, 2020.
  • c. Due dates for all water, sewer, trash and excise bills originally due after March 10 will be due on or before June 30 regardless of the bill due date.
  • d. On July 1, 2020, late fees and penalties will begin being assessed.


How Can I Pay My Bills?

● White dropbox - residents can drop off payments by check and money order only, census forms, etc. in the white dropbox (mailbox) located on the side of the Municipal Building at 355 East Central Street.

● Online Payment - Permitting and Online Payments (property and real estate, water/sewer/trash, excise taxes) can also be found online: Online payments at
www.franklinma.gov/files

Who Do I Contact With Questions?

If any citizen has a question, they should contact the Treasurer-Collector’s Office. The best method right now is to email Treasurer-Collector Kerri Bertone at kbertone@franklinma.gov
