Property assessments underway

Property assessment season is in full swing, with contractors from Vision Government Solutions conducting reviews of residential properties from the street. This year, the town has made an effort to increase awareness about the process. At a recent Board of Selectmen meeting, Town Manager Troy Clarkson said the town’s website,, features photos of the individual assessors, as well as the model of car they drive. “That is an increase in our attempt to share information with the public,” Clarkson said. “We have not previously taken that step, but I think we felt it was important in today’s society to provide that information. It’s something the town has never done before.”
