Vernon City Hall — and other municipal offices — will likely be busy today.
It’s the final day for paying your municipal taxes, without being assessed a 10 percent penalty.
Vernon’s Manager of Revenue Service Cindy Barker says, as of last Friday morning, 67 percent of property taxes had been collected and processed, meaning about a third had yet to pay.
Barker says about 362-thousand dollars in penalty fees were assessed last July.
Vernon taxes are rising just over 5 percent this year, with over half of that to hire six more police officers.
