NOTE: when a town joins, our budget will increase by the percentage noted, but other community's assessment will not

reflect that full percentage increase because the new town's assessment offsets the final budget amount.

Assessments are also affected by changes in the equalized evaluations (EQV), part of the assessment formula administered

by the Department of Revenue. The EQV is updated every 2 years.
