Notice of Lodging of Abstract Grand List

Vermont Law requires that the Assessor annually post a notice when the Abstract (Preliminary) Grand List is lodged with the City Clerk. On the same day, State Law requires that an individual notice of any Change in Appraisal be mailed to all property owners whose value has been changed.

Of the total 2,931 Real Estate parcels in Montpelier, approximately 160 were mailed Change in Appraisal notices this year. Assessment changes are made annually for building improvements, additions, removal of buildings, subdivisions of land, etc.
