Each of three elected Listers serves a three-year term, one term expiring each year. The Listers are responsible for the valuation of all taxable property in town. The Listers are paid on an hourly basis.
The Listers are responsible for the development of the Grand List (the yearly listing of property values in the town).
On June 30, 2017 the East Montpelier Board of Listers lodged the 2016 Grand List with the Town Clerk.
The Grand List contains the listing of all taxable properties in the town along with the current assessment of each property. The lodging of this list opens a two-week window in which taxpayers can grieve their current property assessment. Taxpayers whose assessment changed during the past year will receive direct notice of the change and right to grieve. All taxpayers, however, have the right to grieve during this period.
32 V.S.A. §4111(g) reads as follows:
A person who feels aggrieved by the action of the listers and desires to be heard by them, shall, on or before the day of the grievance meeting, file with them his objections in writing and may appear at such grievance meeting in person or by his agents or attorneys. Upon the hearing of such grievance the parties thereto may submit such documentary or sworn evidence as shall be pertinent thereto.
The grievance hearing will be held on July 14, 2017 at the East Montpelier Town Office from 9:30 a.m. to noon and 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Grievances can be submitted in writing to the listers on or before the date of the grievance hearing. You may call (223-3313) or come into the East Montpelier Town Office between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9:00 a.m. to noon on Friday to make an appointment to present your grievance in person.
