About Vassalboro


In 2021, Vassalboro celebrates its 250th anniversary since incorporation. First settled in 1760, Vassalboro is today a community committed to a rural quality of life, a sound education system and good old Yankee frugality. State data shows Vassalboro’s tax rate below the average municipal rate in Maine and in Kennebec County. Yet, local roads are in good condition, recreational opportunities abound and educational offerings are good.

Vassalboro is celebrating its 250th anniversary in many ways. Starting in January, the Town flicked the switch to solar to provide enough stable, reduced cost electricity to meet 85% of municipal and school demands including streetlights which are now converted to lower demand LED lights. On the anniversary date of April 26th, Monument Park in East Vassalboro was rededicated after three years of work improving this site. A float for fishing is now available to the public at this park. As of June 1st, by agreement with the Kennebec Water District, the Town is now permitted to create a mile long trail leading to and running along Red Brook with a connection back to the existing mile trail in the Town Forest north of the ball fields in East Vassalboro. On the weekend following Labor Day many events are planned as part of the annually occurring Vassalboro Days but, this year, extra events will be added to commemorate the 250th anniversary.

Vassalboro education is governed by the School Board of the Town of Vassalboro with PK, K - 8 provided at the Vassalboro Community School (VCS) to roughly 400 students. Vassalboro is relatively unique in offering school choice for grades 9 -12. Most high school students attend Erskine Academy but students also enroll in Waterville, Winslow and other area high schools.

Vassalboro Sanitary District (VSD) serves built-up sections in North and East Vassalboro. In 2020, the VSD connected to the Kennebec Sanitary Treatment District. The $7 million project, required under State environmental laws, was financed through grants, loans and Town Tax Increment Financing.

To restore an alewife run to China Lake up Outlet Stream, two dams were removed and two fish ladders were built. The third and final fish ladder should be completed in 2021. Alewives improve water quality, the sport fishery and lakeshore property values while annual alewife harvests provide new revenues to Town coffers.

Vassalboro is home to the Maine Criminal Justice Academy and the Kennebec Water District’s treatment facility that serves five area municipalities. Also in Vassalboro, is the 36 hole Natanis Golf Course, Duratherm Window Corporation, major Kennebec Land Trust holdings with trails and the Alonzo Garcelon Wildlife Management Area containing Spectacle Pond.

Vassalboro - a great place to live and work.

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.
