Town's new web site: carlislema.gov coming soon
Selectmen heard on May 23 that Carlisle's new official town web site will be available to the public by the end of the month. Town departments are busy getting their information ready for posting. The new town domain name is "carlislema.gov."
In addition to hosting town information, the town web site will also let Carlisle taxpayers submit their payments online via software and financial support from the financial institution UniBank Online. The online payment service will be free to taxpayers who use their bank to make the payments. If taxpayers choose to use their MasterCard or Discover credit cards to pay, they will be assessed the 3% fee charged by the respective credit card company. In typical retail situations, the business absorbs the cost of the credit card transaction. To save the town the additional expense, that 3% fee is passed along to the taxpayer. The Board was assured that all online transactions made through UniBank were secure, and if there were any breaches to security, UniBank would be liable and responsible for remedy.
