Misleading Public Announcement

This public announcement from the town is very misleading but factually correct. Last year we did have a mil rate of $23.59 but that was based on 87% valuation. This years mil. rate is $22.40 but it is based on 100% valuation. To compare these mil rates you must first base both of them on 100% valuation.

2016 ----- 22.40 @ 100% valuation
2015 ----- 20.52 @ 100% valuation

This is an increase in taxes of $1.88 per $1,000 dollars valuation. We should compare apples to apples or 100% valuation to 100% valuation.
