Frequently Asked Questions

I heard there is a special card called a Green Mountain Passport granting free admittance to State Parks? Is this true?

Yes there is such a card. Stop in the Town Clerk's Office and fill out a Green Mountain Passport form. You must be 62 years or older or, if you are a veteran, provide a copy of your DD214. You will be issued a card which allows you free admittance to any state park or fully sponsored state event. The initial cost for this is $2. and never expires.

Who do I contact if I have questions about my property?

Contact the listers with questions about your assessment card. That card contains the record of ownership transfer, some locally issued permits, and some other information. The listers can assist you with understanding the data on the property assessment card, explain how assessments work, acreage, and buildings affected.
