Water Tips for the upcoming cold weather…

Water Leaks, sump pumps and winter running faucets….

Please help us save money and water this winter. If you have had a frozen water pipe in the past, please make sure to run one faucet during the coldest days. The water only needs to be running a stream about the size of a pencil. If your basement is warm then you will only have to run the water after the ground freezes down to the water line. Only run the water when needed.

If you have a dripping or running fixture in your home, please get it repaired. If you live near a house that is vacant, please check on it to make sure that there is no water running in it. If there is an outside hose connection, you can put your ear to it and if there is a leak you will be able to hear it. If you notice an area in your neighborhood that is wetter than normal, please call us so we can check on it.

If you have a sump pump that is connected to the sewer, it is an illegal connection and must be disconnected. Please don’t pump the water to the sewer system. The extra water has to be treated and the pumps and the plant will fail if we receive too much ground water.

Thank you for helping us save time and money!

WEST RUTLAND, VT – 2018 REVALUATION

The Town of  West Rutland, VT has contracted with Vision Government Solutions to do a complete town-wide reappraisal for the 2019 Grand List.  Vision will be working with the Listers office to make this year long project a successful one.  The last revaluation was completed in 2008 and current CLA and COD values calculated by the state indicate that a reappraisal is needed again.  A revaluation will determine the current fair market value of every property in town.  It equalizes the values of all properties for the purpose of a fair distribution of the tax burden.

The major phases to a municipal revaluation are: Data Collection, Market Analysis, Valuation, Field Review and Informal Hearings. You can visit the Vision Government Solutions website at www.vgsi.com for information that explains the revaluation process, and read answers to frequently asked questions. During the month of April, the data collectors will be starting the data collection phase.  The Valuation phase will be starting later in the year.  Vision personnel will also be driving through the town reviewing all properties to update the Listers Office database. A “Listers Office” sign will also be posted in the vehicle window, and their car is registered with the Sheriff’s Office as well as the Listers Office at the town hall.

If you have any questions about the revaluation process or need additional information please contact the Listers office at (802) 438-2263 or stop by on Tuesday mornings.   We can also be reached email at listers@westrutlandvt.org
