Again this year, Tax Assessor Clinton Swett attributed the good news to a healthy economy. "The budget estimated the mil rate to be $19.76, but due to robust construction renovations and new construction, our townwide valuation was greater than anticipated," he said.

The committed tax rate is up 3.8 percent over last year's rate of $19.02.

Tax due dates are Oct. 1, 2019 and April 1, 2020. Bills for the first half of the fiscal year are being printed and will be mailed out by the end of the week of Aug. 12, 2019, Swett said.
