Killington officials reject change to grand listOctober 10,2012Select board rejects value change
KILLINGTON — The Select Board on Tuesday rejected a request from town listers to change the value of three properties on the grand list.
The value of three properties will be listed lower than they should be until the new year, according to Walter “Butch” Findiesen, one of the town’s listers.
The request to update the property values came after the listers found three undervalued properties, a common occurrence when reviewing more than 3,000 properties that make up the town’s housing and land stock, Findiesen said.
The listers are still reviewing what the Select Board’s decision means and the reasoning behind it.
Findiesen said he didn’t know if there would be any impact on property taxes.MORE IN This Just In
