To All Residents,
As most of you are aware, the bridge on North Bear Hill Road is currently being completely replaced. Even though this is an active construction site we received several complaints by the construction company working on the bridge regarding trespassers both during and after work hours. The worksite is off limits to any and all unauthorized personnel. The construction site can be very dangerous so the Board of Selectmen are asking everyone to please observe all signage. The State Police have been asked to patrol the area regularly and that trespassers will be prosecuted.
Thank you for your cooperation, The Chaplin Board of Selectmen

Chaplin Revaluation Property Inspection Announcement
Beginning on Thursday, February 1, 2018
The State of Connecticut requires that each municipality revalue real property every 5 years to ensure that assessments are equitable. The Town of Chaplin has retained Vision Government Solutions, Inc. to conduct the revaluation for the 2018 Grand List. Representatives from the Appraisal Department of Vision Government Solutions, Inc. will be in your area shortly to conduct the first phase of the revaluation. Each Vision Data Collector will have a Vision photo identification card. Residents are encouraged to ask to view this identification prior to admitting anyone into their homes.
When the Vision Data Collector visits your property they will verify the exterior measurements of each building. If a person 18 years or older is at the home to allow entry, the Vision Data Collector will request to inspect the interior including the basement and easily accessible attic. They will also take exterior photos of the property. At the conclusion of the inspection, the homeowner or resident will be asked to sign the data collection form to verify that the inspection took place.
If no one is available at the time of the visit, follow up letters will be sent to owners with information on how to schedule an inspection appointment.
The following streets/roads have been selected:
Bates Road Bedlam Road North Bedlam Road
South Bedlam Road Chaplin Woods Drive Willimantic Road
Carefree Lane Chappell Street Federal Road
Mansure Road Lynch Road York Road
Chaplin Street Old Willimantic Road Palmer Road

The Assessor is required by Connecticut Law to list and value all real and personal property. Valuation is subject to ad valorem taxation on an assessment grand list each year. The "ad valorem" basis for taxation means that all property should be taxed "according to value," which is the definition of ad valorem. Motor vehicles are assessed each year, utilizing the October issue of a national pricing manual, at 70 percent of the average retail value.
The Assessor does not raise or lower taxes. The Assessor does not make the laws that affect property owners.
The Assessor's Office has nothing to do with the total amount of taxes collected. The Assessor's primary responsibility is to estimate the fair market value of your property, so that you may pay only your fair share of the taxes. The tax rate is determined by all the taxing agencies within the Town, and is the basis for the budget needed or demanded by the voters to provide for services, such as schools, roads, law enforcement, etc. Tax rates are simply those rates that will provide funds to pay for those services.
The Tax Collector's role is to collect payment for taxes. If you disagree with your bill, you should see the Assessor, Chandler Rose at the Chaplin Town Hall. To make a payment there is a drop box located at the Town Hall (no cash), you can pay online or in person at the Tax Collector's office located in Willimantic.
