    Time for the town to reorder this list. With regard to assessments, what matters is net assessments, not gross assessments. One day, Walgreens will be number 1 on the list (provided they actually pay their taxes). These business properties would help lessen the home tax increase that would occur if Governor Malloy's motor vehicle tax exemption of $20,000 comes to be.
