FRYEBURG, Maine — Property Tax Stabilization for Senior Citizens has some serious flaws, according to the Fryeburg town manager and selectmen.

Basically, if you are a senior and register for the program, it freezes your tax bill at whatever it was in April. For example, if you have a $2,000 tax bill and the town raises taxes, your bill stays at $2,000 as long as you remain in the program.
