The town has contracted with CAI Technologies, a Littleton, NH company, to provide the town with an extremely detailed, interactive, web-based tax map of all properties in the town. You can use it to look up details on your own property, to check out any property in town, or to look up property values of homes near you.
The Town Moderator presides at the annual Town Meeting and Deliberative Session, held in January. The Moderator regulates the business conducted there, sets the rules of conduct, and announces the results of every vote taken. In Allenstown, the Town and School Moderator have been historically the same person.
"The election of the moderator in a town shall be at the annual meeting in every even-numbered year." RSA 40:1
The Town has enacted several policies to govern and guide town employees and officials in the proper completion of their roles and responsibilities. These policies can be found in several places on the town web site. One group of policies covers topics like ethics, hiring, finance, revenue, and safety. Another group relates to personnel policy and employee forms and documents. A third group concerns zoning situations.
