The Board of Listers appraise property within the Town for the purpose of property tax assessment, maintain the Grand List, and assist the public to find information on land parcels. 

Permits for new construction and modifications to existing structures are issued by the zoning administrator. The fee for building permits is $17.00. It is recommended that you apply at least 15 days prior to construction for a permit as permits are not valid until after the 15 day appeal period has expired.

- Persons who wish to appeal a building permit decision by the zoning officer, request a variance, conditional permit or waiver, need to apply to the Zoning Board of Adjustment. Appeals must be requested in writing within 15 days of the issuing of the zoning officer's decision. The fee is $47.00.  

- Property owners who disagree with the listers’ property value appraisals are entitled to a hearing before the listers. If they are not satisfied with the decision following that hearing, they may appeal to the Board of Civil Authority. The appeal must be made in writing, stating the grounds for such appeal, and must be lodged with the town clerk, who shall record it and call a meeting of the board of civil authority to hear the appeal. Additional information on appeal property values can be found in the Handbook on Property Tax Appeals.

- Persons requesting an abatement of property taxes must appeal to the Board of Abatement. Read important information regarding tax abatements at: About Abatements.
