Borough’s grand list goes up slightly

NAUGATUCK — The borough’s 2014 grand list saw a minimal increase.

The net grand list for Oct. 1, 2014 is $1.58 billion, an increase of $10.3 million or about 0.65 percent from 2013. A municipality’s grand list is a tabulation of the assessed values of real estate, personal property and motor vehicles.

The assessed value of personal property saw the largest monetary increase. Assessed personal property is $92 million, a $6.86 million or 8.05 percent increase from the 2013 grand list.

The assessed value of motor vehicles went up $3.67 million or 2.13 percent from the 2013 grand list to $175.9 million.

Assessor George Hlavacek attributed these increases to an upturn in the economy.

The borough saw a decline in real estate assessment. Assessed real estate dropped by $223,210 or 0.01 percent to $1.31 billion.

Hlavacek said he couldn’t find a specific reason for the drop, since it was so minimal.

Using the current mill rate of 44.27, the increase in the grand list equals about $450,000 in new tax revenue, Hlavacek said.
