Are you a new resident in the Town of Purcellville (or looking to move here)? We're excited to have you part of the community. Below is a checklist of important information for new residents.

New Resident Checklist

  • Set Up Water / Sewer Service

    • You will need to establish an account with our Finance Department and pay a deposit. Please visit this page for more details.
  • Register Your Vehicle

    • Every vehicle sited within the Town of Purcellville must have a vehicle decal (this is in place of a Loudoun County decal). It is a permanent decal and the fee is paid annually. In addition, you must pay personal property tax on the vehicle to Purcellville (in addition to Loudoun County taxes). The Town of Purcellville does not "pro-rate" personal property taxes, so you are responsible for taxes on vehicles that were sited within the Town as of January 1st. If you move to Town after January 1st, you must still get a decal for that year, but you do not have to pay personal property tax on the vehicle until the following year. Visit this page for more information.

  • Learn About Water and Wastewater Services

    • The Town of Purcellville provides water and wastewater (sewer) service to all Town residents. Click here to learn about water and click here to learn about wastewater. Here are some important points:
      • Water comes from both wells and a reservoir. The Town treats the water to ensure the highest quality of safe drinking water. We are pleased to receive annual awards for our water quality. Please use wise conservation methods to reduce your water usage.
      • Everything you flush down a toilet or down a sink goes through the sewer system to pump stations, which must pump the waste to our Wastewater Treatment Plant on S. 20th Street. It is important that you DO NOT put the following items down your pipes:
        • Wipes (even flushable wipes)
        • Diapers
        • Feminine Products
        • Grease, oils, fats
        • Prescription Drugs
