City of Waterville Assessing Department
The City Assessor is charged by State law with discovering, describing, and valuing property, as well as the ownership of that property, for the purpose of taxation. To raise the funds for the budget approved by the City Council, the Assessor prepares a list of these properties annually and commits the assessments to the City Tax Collector for collection. The records compiled by the Assessor are made available for public inspection at the City Hall. The Assessing Office then reports to the State Department of Revenue Services regarding its activities for the year.
