Colchester may appeal camp ruling

Posted: Updated:
COLCHESTER, Vt. -

The town of Colchester may appeal a court ruling that it double taxed some camps on leased land along Lake Champlain.

The land owners already pay taxes for the land. But during last year's reappraisal, the town taxed the camp owners for the land, too. A judge agreed that was double taxation and ordered the town to repay camp owners $150,000.

Town officials say they may appeal the ruling to the Vermont Supreme Court. The town feels that the location of the camps should be considered when estimating their tax value.
