Connecticut Light & Power is the highest taxpayer in Avon, according to a list of the top 10 taxpayers in Avon released by the Avon Town Assessor's Office.
The power company pays taxes for its utility poles, transformers and power lines in Avon, Town Assessor Harry DerAsadourian previously said. Upgrades to CL&P's utility "distribution system" factored into the total increase in taxable personal property for 2012, he said of the 2012 Grand List.
“There was a lot of upgrading due to storm damage" from the 2011 October snow storm, he said.
