The Connecticut Emergency Alerting and Notification System (or CT Alert ENS) allows emergency services personnel to notify residents and businesses about a potential emergency circumstance. This system uses the 911 database and citizen opt-in data that residents voluntarily provide (phone numbers, email addresses, etc.).
Connecticut State Statute dictates that CT Alert ENS E911 database can only be used for life-threatening situations. However, the Trumbull Citizen Alert system can be used for non-life-threatening situations.

The Large Item Pickup Program runs from April through September. Appointment requests can begin in March by calling 203-452-5070 or 203-452-5071.
Large Item Pickup is by appointment only. Each household may only schedule one pickup each year. Residents may schedule appointments beginning March 1 using our Large Item Pickup Appointment Reservation System or by calling the Department of Public Works at 203-452-5070 or 203-452-5071.
Residents should schedule appointments early because they fill up quickly. NOTE: There are a limited number of appointments per day, so you must call by mid-July to ensure you get an appointment. Otherwise, you risk not being able to schedule one.
Households are only allowed to reschedule their pickup appointment once. Requests to reschedule must be made at least one day prior to the originally scheduled pickup date.
Town crews will begin in the Southwest Quadrant this year, which is west of Rte. 25, will pick up from Old Town Road moving North, then move clockwise thru the Northwest, Northeast and Southeast Quadrants until finished. Please refer to the Leaf Pickup Quadrants section below for more information.
Payloaders will remove larger piles of leaves first, then crews will return to finish clean up with leaf vacuums. Both phases many not occur on the same day.
Residents can track the leaf collection progress by viewing the 2021/22 Leaf Pickup Progress Map , which is updated daily.
Leaves must be placed on the lawn, at the edge of the curb - not in the roadway. Putting leaves on the pavement is subject to a $90 fine and creates dangerous conditions for vehicles and pedestrians. Leaf piles must be in an accessible location. Leaves will not be picked up if there are branches mixed in with your leaves. Branches will clog the leaf suckers. Do not deposit your leaves on someone else’s property or vacant lot - unless you have the owner’s permission.
Loose leaf collection will be done only once on each street.
Residents may request bagged leaf pickup at any time throughout the leaf pickup program by calling 203-452-5070. All leaves must be in paper bags. Plastic bags will not be picked up.
The residential Water Pollution Control Authority (WPCA) User Rate per Centum Cubic Feet (CCF) for Fiscal 2022-2023 is $6.292 A single fixed residential Unit Charge of $33.000 per quarter is billed every resident with access to the sewer system. Residents not connected are not exempt from this cost.
The number of CCFs each dwelling generates is determined by the amount of water coming into the house. That consumption is measured by their water meters and billed quarterly. The consumption plus the Unit Charge determines the total sewer user bill.
Example: Water consumption of 21 CCF multiplied $6.292 equals $132.132 plus the Unit Charge $33.00 equals $165.132 for the quarter.
The estimated cost to Bridgeport for Sewage Treatment: $7,097,482.00 is based on an estimated consumption of 1,100,000 CCF.
Approximately 65% of the Town of Trumbull has sanitary sewer service.
The most recent sewer expansion project was in North Nichols. It was labeled Phase IV - Part B. Contract IV. It will provided sewer service to 862 residents. The assessments were determined by the actual construction, engineering and administrative costs for this project. The amount assessed is payable over 20 years at an interest rate of 2.75%.
For a list of registered sewer installers, please visit the Sewer/Water Pollution Control Authority (WPCA) page.

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 12-62 of the State of Connecticut General Statutes and Connecticut Public Act 09-60, legislation requires that Trumbull conducts a revaluation for the October 1, 2021 Grand List.
A Revaluation is the process of conducting a Market Analysis necessary to equalize the values of all properties within a municipality for the purpose of a fair distribution of the tax burden. All residential, commercial, apartments, industrial, vacant land, churches, school buildings and all other real estate will be revalued. The purpose of revaluation is to correct assessment inequities that have developed since the implementation of a previous (2015) revaluation, ensuring an equitable distribution of the property tax burden among taxpayers.
The revaluation will be effective as of the October 1, 2021 Grand List. Tax bills issued in July 2022 will be based upon the new October 1, 2021 assessments.
The Town has contracted with Municipal Valuation Services, Inc., to assist with the revaluation. Representatives of Municipal Valuation Services, Inc. (MVS) will also meet with the public to answer questions about the methods utilized and the resulting assessments.
Each property owner should receive an individual notice of the new assessment by mid January 2022. NOTE: Exemptions (including senior benefits, veterans, disabled, etc.) are not reflected in your revaluation notice.
Take the October 1, 2021 assessed value notice, and divide by .70 to determine the appraised value of your property per the revaluation. Example: $70,000 (October 1, 2021 assessment) ÷ .70 = $100,000 (Market Value appraisal as of October 1, 2021)
If you feel that your estimated Market Value is incorrect, follow the instructions on your notice on how to schedule an appointment with MVS. You must receive a notice prior to scheduling an appointment, as there is information contained in the notice that will be required.
NOTE: Do not call or visit the Assessor’s office as appointments can only be made directly with MVS.
Yes. You may review the data that it was based on by going online at www.vgsi.com. At the top click on highlighted “Taxpayer Information”, click on “Online Database”, click on “Connecticut”, then click on “Trumbull” and “Enter online database”. You will be able to search by address to locate your property and review the information that your new assessment was based on. You can also click on this link: https://gis.vgsi.com/trumbullct/Search.aspx. You may wish to compare your assessment with the assessment of similar homes in your neighborhood and throughout the Town. Finally, the website also provides a Sales search utility that is easy to navigate and is designed to help you find properties like yours that have sold within the past six months to a year.
There are two good methods of determining this. First, compare your properties to similar properties that sold in the previous year. Your value should be in line with these sales prices. Second, if no recent sales are available, compare your assessment to other similar properties in your area using the Street Listing of Values available in the Assessor’s Office. Your value should be in line with these similar properties. Remember, very few properties are exactly alike. Your value should be comparable, but it seldom will be exactly the same as what seems to be similar property.
The Grand Levy is the amount of revenue in the Annual Town Budget, which must be raised by the property tax. The remaining balance is received from fees, state and federal assistance and miscellaneous revenue. The Grand List is a listing of all taxable properties located within the Town on October 1, of the grand list year. The property tax rate is expressed in mills or thousandths of a dollar. Example: A tax rate (mill rate) of 35.42 mills (Trumbull’s current mill rate), or .03542 expressed in decimal form, is equivalent to $35.42 of taxes per $1,000 of assessed value. The tax rate is determined by dividing the Grand Levy by the Grand List.
The revaluation will affect your tax bill. The amount of your new tax bill is calculated by multiplying your new assessment value times the new mill rate. Since the new mill rate will not be established until the budgetary process has been completed, it is not possible to estimate your new tax bill at this time.
Again, please DO NOT use the current Mill rate to try to estimate your new taxes as it is based on the 2020 Grand List period of 10/1/2020 to 9/30/2021. Until a total Grand List including new values of all taxable property classes is completed (real estate, motor vehicles, and personal property AND a new Fiscal Year 2022-2023 budget is formally adopted in late Spring 2022, the tax rate and property taxes cannot be determined.
NOTE: A new mill rate will not be determined until after the Town and School budgets have been finalized and approved by the Board of Finance in late Spring 2022.
Homeowners who currently qualify will be notified by mail in February 2022, if they are required to reapply. Any Tax Credits or Exemptions eligible to be received, will be deducted at tax billing time. Further questions regarding these tax relief programs should be directed to the Assessor’s office @ 203-452-5016.

The Trumbull Tree Warden plays a vital role in the communication between the homeowner and their utility company. Under the law, the removal or pruning of trees in or around utility lines should only be performed by United Illuminating (UI) and Eversource contractors. All removals and pruning are performed to the specifications approved by our Tree Warden, who will issue permits on a tree-to-tree basis to UI and Eversource contractors to remove and clear electrical utility lines.
All recommendations made by the Trumbull Tree Warden are intended to reduce the risk of tree failure and hazardous conditions that public trees may pose. This process cannot eliminate such risk, especially in the event of a storm or any other “Act of God.”
The United Illuminating utility company handles all work that has to deal with their wires. To report a tree trimming problem, please call United Illuminating at 800-722-5584. When you call, please have the following information ready:
It is vital that you do not attempt to trim the tree yourself. Serious injury or death could result.
A request for service can be submitted via he following:
Information on UI’s Tree Care Program can be found in the "Outages" section of their website- https://www.uinet.com
The Trumbull Tree Warden utilizes the International Society of Arboriculture (I.S.A.) standards for mitigation and American National Standard Institute’s (ANSI) A300 pruning practices as follows:
Most tree checks are completed within two weeks. The more urgent situations will be given priority.
Before any tree work can be performed on private property, utility contractors must notify tree owners, except under certain easement conditions. Door hanger notifications are provided when tree owners are not home. For work on public property, the appropriate highway official or municipal tree warden generally grants permission.
Eversource and UI undertake two types of tree work:
Trees that are decayed, insect-infested, damaged or structurally weak may be removed.
Small trees and saplings that are capable of growing into the conductors are normally removed before they grow tall enough to interfere with the lines.
Limbs are pruned using a tree-care industry technique known as “target pruning”. Each limb is pruned back to a point where it meets the branch collar so that the pruning cut will callous over and prevent decay of the pruning wound.
If there are any concerns or questions regarding this program please contact our Tree Warden.
When a tree falls from private property into a town road or into the “Right-of-Ways” the town will remove all the branches and wood within the “Right-of-Ways” up to the property line to allow movement of traffic for the public and emergency vehicles. The town will remove materials within the “Right-of Way” as soon as possible, however, during storm events the town may temporarily push the tree or its branches to the side of the road until further clean up becomes practicable.
Yes. Just provide the Town with sufficient notice of your intention by contacting the Highway Department by calling 203-452-5070.
The Town of Trumbull will regularly mitigate a hazardous tree and leave the larger portions to be cut and removed at a later date when Department of Public Works crews are available to assist. Logs or debris must be left in a safe location, not to pose a risk or hazard to the safety and well-being of the public.
There are certain safety circumstances that the law allows the electric company to trim or remove a tree without notifying the property owner, with the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) making the final decision in most cases.
If the ETT assessment recommends that a tree be removed, the property owner has the right to object and is under no obligation to sign off on the removal recommendation. The property owner may request that a tree only be pruned if said pruning will satisfy the maintenance and safety requirements of the utility provider.
If there are any concerns or questions regarding this program please contact the Tree Warden.
The problems associated with the decline of Ash trees within the state is twofold; Initially a disease commonly called “Ash Yellow” severely weakened the stands within the state’s forested areas only to be followed by the introduction of an invasive insect call Emerald Ash Borer about a decade ago.
At this time it has fully matured within our natural stands and we are now experiencing mass failure.
Unfortunately this is not reversible and will result in the virtual elimination of the ash tree from our forests as did similar events of decades past with the Chestnuts and American Elm trees.
