The Town of Westford is requesting proposals from qualified firms of Certified Public Accountants to audit its financial statements. Please click on the document below to view the Request for Proposals.
The Town of Westford currently accepts postmarks (USPS, UPS & FedEx) for tax payments. Given the electronic age we are in, the Town occasionally receives checks directly from financial institutions after a taxpayer initiates the payment. This type of payment may be known as Bill Pay.
These payments are mailed to the Town directly from the financial institution however the envelope does not bear a postmark. Effective July 1, 2015 the Town of Westford will acknowledge this type of payment based on the date the payment is received at the Town Office.
The Town highly recommends that if you remit payment using this method, you contact your financial institution to determine the appropriate lead time to ensure your tax payment is timely.
The town has now fully enabled its Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program, which is a way of financing energy efficient home improvements. Check out the Energy Committee’s page for more details.
The Westford Selectboard is accepting applications for a Town Auditor. This position was not filled during the 2015 Town Meeting election.
Town auditors play a vital role by ensuring that local officials are accountable for expenditures of taxpayers’ money. It is the auditor’s job to review the accounts of local officials and report the findings directly to the taxpayers. For more information on the statutory responsibilities of a Town Auditor, please go to http://vlct.org/assets/Resource/Handbooks/VLCT_Municipal_Auditors_Hndbk_2008.pdf.

Interested candidates must be a Westford resident and a registered voter. Please contact the Town Office at 878-4587 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or an application. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
