Online Payments, E-mail Digests and More on BrookOnLine
Parking tickets, school lunches and real estate taxes are just some of the payment options for the online system.
The online Payment section of the site has a number of options for payment: school lunches, water/sewer, parking tickets and excise taxes to name just a few. Should the need arise, you can also order copies of birth, marriage and death certificates online.
Under Notify, the town's system for "Citizen reporting," a system that allows eagle-eyed citizens to report potholes, broken parking meters, coyote sightings, and a number of other things. A service similar to the MBTA See Say App.
You can sign up for the new Daily Digest under Information. A daily e-mail of town events you are interested in, whether it's the meeting announcements, information from the library, or social media posts--such as the Brookline Police Twitter account and the Recreation Department's Facebook page, without signing up for either service.
[Update: While the online payment system is convenient, it may not be free. For parking tickets, at least, there may be fees associated. Twitter user @Dfernald reports there is a fee, which he believes is around $2. 3:35 p.m.]
