Assessor’s Notice

NOTICE FOR RESIDENTS TO VERIFY MAILING ADDRESSES WITH DMV The Assessor’s Office has found that DMV continues to have many mailing addresses for Colebrook residents listed incorrectly. The Assessor’s Office has manually corrected our town records to assure accurate tax billings. However, DMV addresses must be accurate in order for our residents to receive registration and/or license renewals from the DMV. This is especially important for those vehicles registered by auto dealers or leasing companies. Vehicles driven with expired registrations or licenses are subject to penalties and towing by the State Police at considerable cost and inconvenience to the owner. We urge all residents to verify that their current registrations and licenses list correct mailing addresses and indicate “COLEBROOK 029” as our tax town. You may obtain information on your license and/or registrations online at www.ct.gov/dmv. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Assessor’s Office at msloane@colebrooktownhall.orgmsloane@colebrooktownhall.org> or call 860-379-3359 ext. 206. Our office is open Mon/Weds/Thurs. from 1:00 – 4:30 pm. Thank you.

Connecticut Magazine’s Top Towns Rating

Rating the Towns 2013: Median Home Sale price up to $174,999

photo by Laurie Gaboardi

Colebrook Rated #1

Looking for a home on a budget of $175,000 or less? Several of the best options are near the Massachusetts border.

With the lowest crime rate, the highest-ranked public schools and the third-most robust local economy in the group, Colebrook edged out Cornwall—another town in the Northwest Corner—for the top spot in this group.

Thompson, the state’s northeastern-most town, is also near the top of the list, as is Stafford, also on the state line in Tolland County.

This group does have some geographic diversity, though. If you’re interested in an affordable town along the shoreline, you might consider Westbrook, which ranks second in civic engagement, second in economic success and third in education.

1. Colebrook

population 1,476

crime rate 451

2012 graduation rate 93.2

2013 median sale price $135,000

equalized mill rate 18.65

PIC rating 216.59

2013 best restaurants awards 0

voter turnout 78.58
