Citizen Engagement and Transparency Center
Ashland is committed to improving civic engagement and transparency throughout the community. As part of this effort, we have made the decision to consolidate many of these transparency and engagement tools in one specific section: the Citizen Engagement and Transparency Center". Here you will have the ability to find opportunities to participate in town-wide activities, read about the fiscal condition of the town, find plans and proposals about new developments, see where your taxes go, and also compare our revenue and expenses to other communities. We will continually update this in an effort to help keep you better informed.
