The public notices published on this page keep citizens informed of the activities of government that affect them. From government spending to policy development, public notices keep people informed of actions by public officials that affect citizens' everyday lives. Public notices are essential to a democracy and an informed citizenry. Without public notices, citizens cannot properly and adequately make informed decisions.
    Newspapers are the watchdogs of their local communities and can most effectively monitor the actions of their local governments. Public notices don't just keep local residents informed. They also hold public officials and agencies accountable. Additionally, public notices in newspapers are permanent records that cannot be altered or deleted. Published public notices provide actual notice to the public about government actions like tax and fee increases, land use and environmental decisions, delinquent taxpayer notices that can lead to a government seizure and sale of someone's home and the expenditure of public funds. To be effective, public notices must have these attributes:
- They must be published in a forum independent of the government.
- The published notice must be preserved and secure in a tangible record that is archived.
- The notice must be conveniently accessible by all segments of society.
- The notice's publication must be verifiable (by way of an affidavit of publication).
 
   In addition to the print edition of the Groton Herald, public notices are available at www.grotonherald.com (subscription not required) and www.masspublicnotices.org, an independent statewide service.
