The Mason Board of Selectmen met Tuesday at the town office for a final meeting before breaking for Thanksgiving.

The board discussed regular business, then held a non-public session.

The first item the board tackled was to respond to the state fire marshal’s office, which collects data on regulations of fireworks and pyrotechnics.

Mason has no municipal restrictions and will keep it that way. During debate over concerts at Marty’s Driving Range, the zoning board instituted conditions related to fireworks and pyrotechnics on site, but that does not have townwide implications.

“Given that’s the way it’s been, I say we keep it that way,” Chairman Louise Lavoie said.

It also voted to accept an assessment report that suggest the town was underassessed and could effect the tax rate.

“When we set the tax rate, we can’t set it until [the Department of Revenue accepts] it,” according to Lavoie. “It’s a very controlled process.”

The board meets again on Dec. 13. The town office was closed Thursday.
