Annexation enables Avon residents to manage future growth in the area that will directly impact the Avon community in issues such as schools, housing quality, roads, and economic development.
Residential properties with a Gross Assessed Value of $93,500 or more will not pay more taxes for one acre of the property, which includes the home because they are at the 1% property tax cap. Portions of residential property in the area greater than the one-acre will be at the 3% property tax cap and may pay an additional amount. Properties assessed by the County Assessor in the agricultural category are already at the 2% property tax cap and will not pay more taxes unless there is a portion in the 3% property tax cap category.
The Town Council introduces an annexation ordinance, adopts a fiscal plan for the annexation, notifies property owners of the public hearing, holds the public hearing, considers changes to the ordinance based on public comment, and votes on the final adoption of the annexation ordinance.
Some of the services include:
No. Trash collection is a private service.
Yes, for stormwater, permits, and police reports. Some of the permits are gun permits, alarm permits, and planning/ building permits. The stormwater fee for residential property is $6 per month and replaces the legal drain fee. Chapter 4, Article 12 of the Town Code lists the fees of the Town. It is online at www.avongov.org.
Yes. Residents will be able to serve on Town Boards and Commissions, run for elected office, and vote for the Town Council, Town Judge, and Clerk-Treasurer.

No. The zip code is determined by the United States Postal Service and is not related to Town boundaries. In the past, the Town has had discussions with the United States Postal Service about having an Avon zip code for additional areas but this is unrelated to annexation.
No. Water and sewer services are provided by other entities that are not part of the Town government.
The Town currently contracts our snow removal services. We have seven single-axle trucks and between 23-25 pickup trucks to complete snow removal services. The Town, in cooperation with our contractor, could very quickly and easily add additional resources if needed because of reorganization or annexation. It would be much more difficult if we utilized our own staff and had to buy equipment and hire more people. In terms of cost, the Town would receive additional resources to pay for snow removal services if reorganization or annexation occurs.
