Applications are now available for those who are eligible for Westfield’s Senior Citizen Property Tax Work-Off Program. The program is limited to one $500 work-off per household. Applicants must be the property owner of record or spouse, a resident of Westfield, 60 years of age or older, and willing to work approximately two hours per week from October through June. Volunteer opportunities include working in the public schools as greeters, library assistants, or reading tutors; clerical work within the offices of various City departments; and staff assistance at the Animal Shelter. Placement at a particular site will be determined by matching the skills, talents, and interests of the applicant with the requests of the various City departments. Income guidelines are $37,470 for a single household and $50,730 for a couple, including Social Security income. Completed applications, along with all required documentation, must be submitted in person to Tina Gorman by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 26, 2019. No applications will be accepted after that date. The selection of participants will be by lottery and priority will be given to those who have not yet participated in the program. If you would like an application packet or additional information, please contact Tina Gorman at the Council On Aging at (413) 562-6435.
