From the Selectmen
Update on Town Revaluation: Nearly all homes (98%) have been measured and 50% of homes listed have building data entered in computer system. Unfortunately, due to a medical condition, our assessor has had to delay the full market analysis which means that new property values will not be reflected in property tax bills until Fall 2019. Please feel free to contact a member of the Select Board if you have questions or concerns
Here is an explanation of the town real estate revaluation.
