BRISTOL — Action taken by the Bristol selectboard Monday evening will result in a small increase in the town tax rate — a very small increase.
The selectboard raised the rate by $0.0024, or less than a quarter of a penny. That amounts to $4.80 on a home valued at $200,000.
This was the second time this summer that the selectboard had to revise the tax rate. The original revision last month concerned a pending evaluation by the state on a Bristol property’s taxes, which was not a factor in the most recent revision, Town Clerk Therese Kirby said.
