Post Date:01/30/2019 10:03 AM

In an effort to assist federal employees affected by the government shutdown, Glastonbury Town Council, on January 28, 2019, passed a resolution to establish a deferment program to defer the due date of taxes, which became due January 1, 2019, on real estate, personal property, or motor vehicles owed by affected employees.
