Article 6 on the 2016 Town Meeting Warning is a request for Northfield voters to:

"authorize the Select Board to enter into tax stabilization contracts fixing and maintaining the valuation of certain grand list properties, fixing and maintaining the rates of tax applicable to such properties, fixing the amount of money which shall be paid as an annual tax upon such properties, and/or fixing the tax applicable to such property at a percentage of the annual tax, as authorized by 24 VSA §2741, provided that the term of any such contracts shall not exceed seven (7) years?"

Although this request was favored by the majority of those voting at a 11/04/14 Special Town Meeting (62.6%) and the 03/03/15 Annual Town Meeting (60.2%), state law requires "a vote of two-thirds of those present and voting at annual or special meeting warned for that purpose."  Please click here to view the Tax Stabilization Policy that would go into effect should Article 6 be approved by Northfield voters on Town Meeting Day.
