Notice: Final Value Approval and FY16 Tax Rates
Following a two week disclosure period and DOR approval of
values, the Selectboard held a classification hearing and voted again to split
the tax rate for FY16. The tax rate was
approved by the DOR on December 15th with the residential rate at $17.23 and the
commercial rate set at $22.99. A
