PRESS RELEASE FROM THE TOWN OF BOLTON

On June 28, 2024, Town of Bolton staff became aware of an issue with some tax bills being calculated with the previous assessed value and the new mil rate resulting in undervalued tax bills. Further investigation revealed that this affected 556 accounts. Those accounts are being rebilled correctly. Only those 556 affected accounts have a revised deadline of August 30, 2024, to pay without penalty. All other tax bills are due not later than August 1, 2024. Closer investigation also found that the grand list calculations were incorrect, and it is $30,703,164.00 lower than it should be. With the current mil rate and the new grand list valuation the Town will collect approximately $1,000,000.00 more in taxes than is necessary to operate the Town for the current fiscal year. The Board of Selectmen and Finance Committee met on July 8, 2024, to discuss this matter. At their meeting they determined that they would continue to collect taxes based on the proper evaluations and the current mil rate. They also were in consensus that they would like to return funds to taxpayers in excess of the amount approved by taxpayers for this fiscal year. In an effort to determine the best way to accomplish that they formed an ad hoc committee which includes members of both boards. The charge of that committee is to work with the town administrator and town attorney to determine the most effective and efficient way to accomplish that task. They have also been tasked with completely investigating the issue and determining what happened and how to prevent it from occurring again in the future.

NOTICE OF BOLTON VOTER REAPPORTIONMENT
                                               
Beginning in August 2022, changes are coming for Bolton Voters.  That’s because the state legislature has readjusted many state House and state Senate districts all across Connecticut under a program called reapportionment.  This means changes to where you will vote and whom you will be voting for as State Representative.

Reapportionment occurs every 10 years following the completion of the federal census.  The adjustments are made in an effort to keep all state House and Senate districts approximately the same size in terms of population (for House districts that is approximately 24,000 citizens: for Senate districts it is approximately 100,000 citizens).

Currently, all of Bolton is in the 55th Assembly District. However, beginning in August, Bolton will have two House districts:

  • The 55th (Bolton voting District 2)
  • The 8th (Bolton voting District 1)

The 8th District will now include the North portion of Bolton. All of these voters, belong to District 1 and will vote at Bolton Center School, 108 Notch Road. Note the lighter portion (top) of the map for reference. 

The 55th District will now include the South portion of Bolton.  All of these voters, belong to District 2 and will vote at St. Maurice Parish Center, 32 Hebron Road. Note the darker portion (bottom) of the map for reference.

Large maps are displayed at Town Hall, the Library, and the Senior Center showing the boundaries in Town.

Clarification of boundary lines on split streets are as follows:

Bolton Center Road: 
Even numbered addresses from 10 – 280 belong to District 1.
Odd numbered addresses from 19-159 belong to District 1.
Odd numbered addresses from 169-285 belong to District 2.

Please note that every Bolton registered voter will be mailed a letter informing them of their District and their voting location.
As noted above, we had no choice in these District changes.  The actions were taken by the State Legislature and its Reapportionment Commission.  We have done our best to assign convenient, State and Federal compliant polling locations within each district.
