NORTH HAVEN SUBSTANCE ABUSE ACTION COUNCIL TAKING BACK UNWANTED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
April 27, 2019 AT FIRE HEADQUARTERS
NORTH HAVEN, CT- On April 27, 2019 from 10 am to 2 pm the North Haven Substance Abuse Action Council and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications for disposal to Fire Headquarters at 11 Broadway, North Haven, CT. Sites cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
The North Haven Substance Abuse Action Council hosted their first Take Back in April, 2010, and now proudly works in tandem with the DEA National events. Last fall Americans turned in nearly 460 tons (more than 900,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,800 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 16 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in almost 11 million pounds—nearly 5,500 tons—of pills.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse on the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines-flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash-both potential safety and health hazards. Turning in your unused prescription drugs keeps our water clean. Reports of trace amounts of prescription medicines being found in drinking water supplies across the country have prompted public interest in how medications are disposed of. Proper disposal of medication is a significant way to lower the risk of ground/water contamination. For questions, please contact Nancy Leddy, Youth Services Administrator, 203-239-5321 ext. 505.

NORTH HAVEN 2019 GRAND LIST REVALUATION
The Town of North Haven has begun work on the 2019GL revaluation, as mandated by Connecticut State Statute 12-62(b). This statute requires all municipalities to revalue all of its real estate not later than five years after their last revaluation. The Town of North Haven’s last revaluation was completed as of October 1, 2014, therefore we are mandated to complete a revaluation for October 1, 2019.
The primary purpose of a revaluation, which is a mass appraisal of all real property within an assessment jurisdiction, is to eliminate any assessment inequities that may have developed since the implementation of a previous revaluation. This is accomplished by updating the assessments of real property to reflect their fair market value.
The Town of North Haven has retained eQuality Valuation Services, of Waterbury, CT to assist the Assessor complete the revaluation. eQuality will have data collectors in the field looking at all residential and commercial properties to check data. All data collectors will have a photo ID and be registered with the town. The collection process will run from now until October 2019.
