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...

Window Inserts by WindowDressers
Why Window Inserts? Because windows lose a lot of heat from heated spaces. Windows (even double pane) have little insulation value compared to walls and ceiling. Many older windows also leak air into or out of the room. The best home weatherization is to insulate and seal your window spaces while still being able to see out of them. In the process your home will be more comfortable. Meanwhile you will reduce CO2 emissions and the cost of fuel consumption by 20% or more.
How? Inserts are made with wooden frames and provide a double layer of insulation separating the cold air at the window from the warm air inside. They also have an air-tight seal to prevent drafts. WindowDressers is the name of a type designed and made in Maine. They do the job admirably and can be reused year after year. You help make the inserts custom fitted to the windows in your home. Because this is largely a volun-teer effort that anyone can be a part of, the cost of the inserts is relatively small, at about $14 per window. Inserts pay for themselves in reduced fuel consumption in just months. Some “profits” are left over to build inserts for those unable to afford that small investment.
When? WindowDressers’ annual program includes a spring/summer signup, summer measuring of windows, followed by cutting and fitting the wooden frames, and a fall “Community Build” -- a fun time putting the fin-ished product together. It’s like an indoors version of a barn-raising.
Why Me? WindowDressers is a community project. Likely customers need to be identified. Window spaces need measuring. Frames need to be assembled and then there’s the Community Build. A team is required to cover every stage. You could be one of the people to get inserts for your home, or you could help others.
How Do I Get Involved? Follow the link to www.windowdressersusa.com to find out more. Ask the Town Clerk for a sign-up form for how you would like to participate in the current year.
Awards? WindowDressers won the Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards in the New Venture catego-ry in 2013. Your rewards will be community, warmth, comfort, and dollars +CO2 saved.

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.
