The Grand List generates the greatest amount of revenue to the town through the collection of tax. Other sources of income to the town include various grants, building permit fees, copies, the filing of documents, and Park and Recreation activity enrollments, to name a few. The dollar amount of these various sources, plus the revenue generated by the total net grand list, versus the total town budget is calculated to create the mill rate.
A thorough analysis of all the town expenditures and revenues is made by the Board of Selectmen and the Board of Finance before it is scheduled for a town meeting. The taxpayers of Clinton play a large role in this process, as we vote in the budget, thus setting the mill rate. The 2013 mill rate was set at 26.27 mills. The 2014 Grand List was signed and filed on January 31, 2015. The mill rate will be set in the spring of 2015 once the budgetary process has been completed. Grand List information is available below.
