The Town of Bolton is pleased to announce the launch of our new municipal website. Welcome!
Thank you to all the Bolton property owners who paid the final installment of their property taxes on time; May 18th. Your prompt payment helps our town to meet its financial obligations, thank you!
For those of you who have not paid, per the Bolton voters on Town Meeting Day 2015, an 8% penalty has been applied, a warrant has been issued, and the list of delinquent payers has been turned over to the Delinquent Tax Collector.
For taxes that are received with a postmark of May 18th or earlier, the 8% penalty fee will be waived.
2015 Dog Licenses were due by 4/1/15. If you have already registered your dog, thank you! If you have not, expect contact from the Bolton Town Constable.
The Friends of the Winooski River, the Bolton Conservation Commission and the Smilie School invite you to a program on May 18th at 6:30 PM at the Smilie School to learn more about the stormwater runoff issue. There will be an emphasis on what individual landowners can do to control runoff from their property. We will also tour the Smilie School property and discuss recommendations for that property. These recommendations were made by a team of Norwich University engineering students, who conducted an evaluation of the Smilie School property in the fall of 2014. The Friends hope to work with the Smilie School to implement some or all of these recommendations and to utilize them as education tools with the students.
An RSVP to the Friends at email@example.com or 882-8276 is appreciated but not required.
Stormwater runoff from developed land is one of the major threats to the health of our streams and rivers as well as Lake Champlain. Stormwater is a problem for two reasons. One is volume—rapid runoff causes localized flooding and erodes and destabilizes stream channels. The other is that is carries pollutants to the streams such as phosphorus (the major contributor to algae blooms in Lake Champlain), bacteria, hydrocarbons and more.
