Hanover has seized three properties from a longtime resident, David Vincelette, after he failed to pay taxes dating back to 2014.
Vincelette is a well known figure in Hanover, and there’s been long-running tension between him and the town. His land is next to a popular nature preserve. Last year, town workers put up a fence along the boundary in an attempt to keep some of Vincelette’s items, like wood pellets and machinery, from spilling over onto town property.
Vincelette still owns two other properties in town. Hanover has not yet decided what it'll do with the seized land.
