The Town of Tyngsboro Massachusetts


Tyngsborough (also spelled Tyngsboro) is a town located in northern Middlesex County, Massachusetts, 28 miles (45 km) from Boston, along the Route 3 corridor. Tyngsborough was settled in 1661, as part of the massive Dunstable Township.

After Tyngsborough was incorporated, it became known for its ferries, which travelled up and down the Merrimack River. Today, Tyngsborough is primarily a bedroom community, part of Greater Lowell and the Nashua, New Hampshire region, representing an easy commute to the Boston area. The town is probably best known now for its green painted single-arched iron bridge over the Merrimack. Constructed in the early 1930s as a replacement for an earlier wooden planked structure, this bridge has become the town's emblem, and more practically, a major river crossing for residents of Massachusetts and New Hampshire alike.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 18.0 square miles (47 km2), of which 16.9 square miles (44 km2) is land and 1.2 square miles (3.1 km2) is water. Tyngsborough is bordered by the towns of Dunstable, Groton, Westford, Chelmsford, and Dracut, by the city of Lowell, and by the New Hampshire communities of Hudson, Pelham and Nashua. Besides a series of lakes and ponds that dot Tyngsborough, the town is split in two by the Merrimack River.

An effective property manager keeps ethics at the forefront of every decision. Real estate managers can often be put in very difficult situations when managing their properties. These situations will often test the ethical standards many have learned to live by, through years of experience as professionals in the business. One example of a common ethical challenge for real estate managers is maintaining the confidentiality of bids from vendors for various jobs. On occasion, a vendor will ask the property manager for the pricing range of all bids submitted, in order to gain some advantage over the competition. Clearly, revealing this information to the vendor would be wrong. All bids must be kept confidential, in order to keep pricing practices above board. Some real estate managers are also confronted with ethical issues when, after managing a property for some time, the owner or board asks the manager to independently oversee the entire account, so they can cancel the contract with the manager\'s company. The board or building owner would certainly benefit financially (in a short-term sense) from this proposed arrangement but the management company would not. The decision to make such a move is unethical, as it would be unfair to the company the manager represents. To prevent this dilemma, many real estate management companies now maintain non-compete clauses with their managers. Ultimately, it is in the best interest of the owner or owners to make sure that the property manager hired adheres to high ethical standards.
