Yep. Didn’t work out. The DTC sued the town and we had to settle.

Subject: delinquent tax collector penelty
Our Selectboard wants to continue our penalty for late taxes at 8%.
But only pay the delinquent tax collector 4% and the town make a little more than just the interest.
As far as I can tell all the penalty is for the delinquent tax collector and the Selectboard can’t decide this.
According to the
“Or voters can vote to pay the collector a salary in lieu of fees” 24 VSA 1530
The warning has been printed they have not warned anything about changing his payment. I know there was some sort of discussion on this 6-8 weeks ago, I didn’t know I needed to pay more attention. Any one already been there, done that.
