2018 Lister’s Report
The listers would like to thank Marcia Martel for all of her years of service as a lister including her continued help after her term last year. We welcome Les Blodgett to his first year in office.
The winning bid for town-wide reappraisal was awarded to New England Municipal Resource Center. This is the same company that supplies the software for Waterford and many Vermont towns for the Grand List and other financial packages. The reappraisal will take 24 months from July 2019 to July 2021. More information on the entire process will be mailed directly to all landowners in the future. This year’s CLA (Common Level of Appraisal) was 98.08%. This calculation by the Vermont Department of Property Valuation and Review is made by comparing all valid property sale prices versus Grand List property assessments, meaning that Waterford’s assessments on average were 98.08% of sale price.
From April 1, 2018 until January 1, 2019, we had a total of 51 land transfers making for another very busy year. We will be out reassessing new and uncompleted homes as well as other permitted changes soon.
We continue to spend a good amount of time improving the tax map accuracy working with CAI Technologies of Littleton, N.H.
