Town Office

The Town of Searsmont is advertising two tax-acquired properties for sale.  Bid packages are available at the Town Office and on the town website at

The next and final Demo Debris Day for this year at the Searsmont Transfer Station is Saturday, August 19th, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.   August 30th is the last Wednesday of the Transfer Station summer hours.

Tax bills were mailed two weeks ago.  Courtesy copies have been sent to any escrow holders that we are aware of.  (You have to tell us if you have an escrow - as not all mortgages do.)  It is ultimately the responsibility of the homeowner to make sure that their escrow company has a copy of the bill, if needed.  The commitment book is also be available on the Searsmont web site.  The tax rate remains the same this year:  A mil rate of 20.5, and residents with homestead exemptions may see a slight tax decrease due to the increased homestead allowance.  As always, please contact the Town Office if you have any questions.  The Assessor’s Agent, Jim Murphy, will be in the Town Office on August 22nd, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Tax Payments can be made online via credit card @  A credit card service fee of 2.5% of the total will be charged for these transactions.  You can also pay by mail.  Please include the property account number and a self-addressed stamped envelope if you want a receipt.

Roof replacement has started on the Searsmont Community Building, and parking is not allowed in the row closest to the building during the process.  Please observe the no parking signs.

The Town Office will be closed Monday, September 4th, Labor Day.
