About Vassalboro

Vassalboro is a community nestled between the banks of the Kennebec River and the West Basin of China Lake. Fertile farmland, small villages, and gentle rolling hills give our town a unique character. Settled in 1760 and incorporated in 1771,Vassalboro has developed into a community committed to quality of life, economic opportunity, and a sound education system.

Our town has frontage on a major river (the Kennebec) and on four lakes and ponds and, as such, has outstanding recreational opportunities. It is also home to Duratherm Window Corporation, Natanis Golf Course (36 holes), and has some of the larger dairy farms in the Central Maine area.

We hope you'll take a moment to visit our little corner of the World Wide Web. We also hope you'll drop by and see us sometime...

Our survey will be used to assess the current transportation needs in Vassalboro. The data collected will be evaluated by the Working Group and will be used to potentially create a bus transportation route by KVCAP for the Towns of Vassalboro, China, and Winslow that could be utilized by riders of all ages. Volunteers will be handing out this survey at the polls on November 8th at the Town Office. If you would like to participate now, please do so by clicking HERE to download and print the survey. Feel free to leave questions blank or to discontinue the survey if you do not wish to disclose the information.

Residents of Vassalboro Can Now Pay their Property/Real Estate Tax and Utility Payments Online

The Town of Vassalboro is pleased to announce our participation in the Maine PayPort Online service; a convenient way for citizens to pay their personal Property/Real Estate Tax and Utility Payments online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Town of Vassalboro already participates in Maine PayPort OTC, an over the counter solution that allows individuals and organizations to be able to pay for any service, fee, license, or product offered by the municipality, using a Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit card. While municipal participation in Maine PayPort is optional, the service has now grown to include over 110 municipalities.

Maine PayPort Online is a service offered by a third party working in partnership with the State of Maine and this municipality. As a part of the service, the designated portion of your payment will be remitted to the municipality on your behalf. The balance funds the operation of this and other Maine.gov online services. Conducting business through Maine PayPort Online is voluntary and the final cost may be higher than using other forms of payment.

Maine PayPort Online service is provided by InforME. InforME has been processing electronic payments for Maine state and local government since 1999. All private customer data is secured according to the most up-to-date and stringent security standards. InforME is CyberTrust certified the industry gold standard for security, and PCI/DSS compliant.
