Welcome to the Assessor's Office!
The major responsibility of the Assessors Office is to produce the Grand List, which is used in the budget process to help establish the Town’s mill rate each spring. The three parts of the Grand List are Real Estate, Motor Vehicles and Personal Property. The three main functions of the office are to discover, list and value all property. The office maintains the Town’s tax maps and data about all properties, including ownership, and size of all buildings. It is also the office that processes property tax exemptions for veterans, elderly, blind and disabled persons.
