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...

The Board of Selectmen of the Town of Vassalboro, Maine is accepting bids for the purchase of the municipality’s interest in twelve tax-acquired undeveloped subdivision lots on Ilona Drive (off the Crowell Hill Road) that will be sold together in one sealed bid process. Each bid must be in writing and in a sealed envelope marked "Tax sale bid" on the outside. All bids must be received at the Vassalboro Town Office no later than 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 6, 2017. Late bids will not be opened or considered.

The minimum bid price is $15,000.00. The bid must also include the bidder’s name, mailing address and phone number and must be accompanied by a deposit in the form of a certified bank check or money order, in an amount equal to or greater than 10% of the bid price. The successful bidder’s deposit will be credited to the total purchase price for the property. Deposits will be returned to the unsuccessful bidders. Any bid which does not contain the proper deposit will be rejected. Bidders must also enclose a signed copy of the Notice Concerning Purchase of Tax Acquired Property with their bid and deposit.

Bids will be opened, reviewed and possibly awarded by the Selectmen at the Town Office on Thursday, April 6th, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. The Board of Selectmen reserves the right to reject any and all bids. The successful bidder shall have fourteen days from the date of the bid acceptance in which to complete the purchase. The property will be conveyed by a quitclaim deed without covenants. The Town has not conducted a title search on the tax-acquired property and the property is sold as is with no warranty expressed or implied. In the event that a successful bidder fails, for any reason, to complete the purchase in the time stated, the bid acceptance is void and the bidder’s deposit shall be forfeited to the Town. The Board of Selectmen may thereafter negotiate a sale of the property with any or all unsuccessful bidders.

The property for sale is described on Town Tax Map 10 with lot numbers as follows: 078-2, 078-3, 078-4, 078-5, 078-7, 078-8, 078-9, 078-10, 078-11, 078-12, 078-13, and 078-14. A bid packet containing the tax map and other public information concerning the property is available on this website or may be picked up at the Town Office during its normal business hours, which are: Monday through Wednesday, 8:00 am to 4:00 p.m.; Thursday, 8:00 am to 6:30 pm; and Friday, 8:00 am to noon.

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 online services. Conducting business through Maine PayPort Online is voluntary and the final cost may be higher than using other forms of payment.
