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.

How do I appeal an assessment or reappraisal?

First, contact the listers. You will be able to discuss your situation on the phone, and/or make an appointment to meet with them. They will be happy to explain how the value for your property was derived, and answer other questions you may have.

(NOTE: The town clerk sets dates and times for a meeting of the BCA and/or Board of Abatement. The listers handle grievances and set times for meetings regarding grievances.)
