    Here’s what else is happening in New Haven:

    West Nile Virus Press Conference

    Thursday, July 29th at 1:30 p.m., there will be a press conference at East Shore Senior Center to educate residents about the West Nile Virus. Representatives from the Health Department will be offering tips on how to minimize the risk of mosquito bites and protect against the West Nile Virus. Free bottles of mosquito repellent will be available at this event.

    Blues, Berries and Jam

    Looking for an exciting way to spend your lunch break? Blues, Berries and Jam is back again this summer with live performances between noon and 2 p.m. Grab a meal from a restaurant or the downtown farmers’ market and head to the Green every Wednesday from July 21st through August 25th.

    Tax Notification

    The first installments of Real Estate, Personal Property and Special Services District Tax and the total Motor Vehicle Tax on the Grand List of October 1, 2009 came due on July 1, 2010 and are payable during the month of July, 2010. Taxpayers who have not received a bill should contact the Tax Office at 203-946-8054 for a duplicate bill, since failure to receive a bill does not invalidate the tax and respective penalties should the account become delinquent. Unpaid taxes will be considered delinquent as of August 3, 2010. On that date, interest will be charged from the original date of July 1, 2010. Interest is charged at a rate of 18% per year in accordance with the provisions of CGS Section 12-146. Extended Hours at the Office of the Tax Collector are 8a.m. to 6 p.m. on the following dates: Thursday, July 22nd through Monday, August 2nd, including Saturday July 24th and July 31st from 9:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. Church Street between Chapel Street and Elm Street has been reclassified as a "tow free" zone, from now until end of day August 2, 2010 in order that the tax payers of the City of New Haven can come into City Hall to pay their taxes/parking tags without the fear of being towed for any delinquencies.

    Tax payments may be mailed to: Collector of Taxes, P. O. Box 1927, New Haven, CT 06509-1927.

    Pilot Pen Tennis Tournament

    New Haven is proud to once again host the Pilot Pen International Tennis Tournament! Don't miss Americans Lindsay Davenport and John Isner as well as Amelie Mauresmo on the Women's side as they play some of the best talent in the tennis world this August 15-23. For tickets and more information, visit www.pilotpentennis.com.

    Green Tip

    Wash and dry only full loads of laundry, as partial loads use about the same amount of resources as full loads.

    I hope you have a happy and healthy week!

    Very truly yours,

    John DeStefano, Jr.
