Bill extends filing deadline for grand list

NAUGATUCK — The state House has approved a bill that will help the borough by validating its grand list assessment with the state.

The bill effectively extends the state filing deadline of the borough’s grand list assessment after the borough missed the original state deadline.

“This legislation keeps Naugatuck within state parameters regarding grand lists assessments and allows the borough to continue operating without penalty or delay,” said Rep. Rosa Rebimbas (R-70). “I’m pleased we were able to facilitate this request on behalf of Mayor (Robert) Mezzo and to make sure the borough is in compliance going forward.”

Municipalities occasionally miss state grand list filing deadlines for various reasons, and an amendment to the bill added the towns of Durham, North Branford and Windsor.

The bill passed the House May 14 with a vote of 145-0. It moved to the Senate. The legislative session adjourns at midnight June 3.
