The Board of Selectmen met on 6/12/2020 and set the mill rate at $10.77 for the 2020 tax year, an increase of 75 cents per thousand. 

Factors contributing to this increase include:
1) A proposed 5% increase in Rome's RSU 18 school tax and 6.4% increase in Kennebec County tax. 
2) Rome's increase also includes an overlay of just over $80k to compensate for anticipated decreases in state revenue sharing and other revenue due to COVID-19, as well as discounts for early payment of property tax.
