EASTON, Conn. – Easton residents will see local taxes rise slightly in 2016-17, according to the Easton Courier.
The town's Board of Finance met on June 7 to set the new mill rate at 30.81 per $1,000 of assessed value, the Courier said.
As a result, the tax rate will rise 1.34 percent from 2015-16, reported the Easton Courier.
