The Saugus, MA, selectmen accepted a payment plan from Chapman Auto Body at 29 Eagle Road to pay the town for back taxes owed. Under the plan, the property owner will pay the town US$3,000 each of the next seven months so that the parcel is no longer in arrears.
In a separate motion, board members voted 5-0 to renew the Chapman Auto Body license, with the condition attached that it adhere to the payment plan.
Later on, the board voted 5-0 to grant Stephen Longmuir a special permit modification to operate a car rental business and an auto damage estimating business at 141 Broadway.
Longmuir’s plan is to operate a drive-in appraisal facility to assess minor damages to a vehicle. That business will be called Stephen’s Auto Body Collision Drop-off Center, which will share the same roof with Enterprise Rent A Car.
