FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Monday adopted a fiscal year 2016-2017 residential tax rate that is 7.01 cents, or about 3.7 percent, higher than the 2015-2016 rate.

The town’s new residential rate is $1.9701 per $100 of property value, up from exactly $1.90 in 2015-2016.

For homeowners who pay based solely on the value of their property, the increase will mean another $70.10 in taxes per each $100,000 of assessed value.
