Welcome to Halifax
The Town of Halifax is located in the center of Plymouth County in Massachusetts. It has a population of approximately 7,500 people and a mix of rural, agricultural (including cranberry bogs) and residential development. Founded in 1734, its history spans from colonial times to the present day. Please explore the Town's web site and if you need more information, please contact us.
Route 106 Repaving Work
The Halifax Highway Department has announced work on the "finish coat" for Route 106/Plymouth Street from the intersection of Route 105/Thompson Street to the East Bridgewater/Halifax town line will begin on Tuesday, October 28 at 7:00 am contingent on weather conditions and the work will continue each week day until it is completed.
Drivers using this section of Route 106 during the hours of repaving should leave additional time to get to their destinations or seek alternate routes.
Any additional information about the project will be posted on the Town's web site.
Hydrant Flushing Notice
The Halifax Water Department will start flushing mains on or about October 14, 2014. The mains will be flushed between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 12:00 midnight Monday through Thursday, and will continue until the entire system is flushed. Approximately two (2) weeks, weather permitting. Water users should check the water for discoloration before using it to wash light colored clothing.
The discolored water is safe for human consumption as it is caused by harmless sediment that has been stirred up from the bottom of the mains. The discoloration will clear up in a short period of time.
We apologize for any inconvenience the flushing may cause, but it must be done to maintain the quality of water to which you are accustomed.
The Town of Halifax is searching for volunteers to serve on the following boards and committees: Beautification Committee, Cable TV Advisory Committee, Finance Committee, Halifax Cultural Council, Halifax in Lights, Historic District Commission, Holmes Public Library Trustees, Youth and Recreation Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals (alternates). Many of the Town's departments are run by volunteers. The commitment needed ranges from a few hours a year to several hours a month. If volunteers are unavailable, the activities and programs run by those departments cease and the Town cannot function as it should. Any resident interested in serving should contact the Board of Selectmen's Office at 781-294-1316 or download a copy of the Talent Bank form - look for "Volunteer Opportunities" just to the left of this notice.
