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.
Brown Water Complaints?
The Water Department reports that certain areas of town have been experiencing discolored water on and off for a period of time. The Water Department asks that residents call the office (781-293-1733) when it happens, even after hours. Please leave your name, address, phone number, and day and time when it happens. The Water Department will call residents back to get additional information and stop by and see what it can do.
Local Cable Broadcasts
The Halifax School Committee and Board of Selectmen's meetings are back on cable. Various meetings of the Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee, Halifax Elementary School Committee and Silver Lake Regional School Committee are broadcast on Channe 15. In addition, some meetings may be available through the "CHCAM Channel".
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.
