KICKOFF MEETING ON REASSESSMENT -WEDNESDAY EVENING APRIL 9 FROM 7 PM TO 8:30 pm BEFORE TOWN BD
Release Date: April 01, 2014

KICKOFF MEETING TOWN REASSESSMENT
WEDNESDAY EVENING APRIL 9, 2014   7 pm TO 8:30 pm
ASK YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT STEPS WE ARE GOING TO TAKE RE: FIRST TOWN WIDE REASSESSMENT SINCE 1956

Last year the Greenburgh Town Board approved funding  to perform a general Town-Wide reassessment of all real property within the Town entire. The Town Board has awarded the contract to Tyler Technologies, to do the work. 

Reassessment is the process of appraising all real estate in a municipality according to its full market value, to ensure that each property owner pays their fair share of taxes. The process is revenue neutral, meaning the purpose is not to raise property taxes. The purpose of the reassessment is to bring the assessed value of all properties within the Town to 100% of market value and to ensure that the property assessments are fair and equitable.

This will create greater Transparency & Equity to the assessment process for the first time on a Town-wide basis since approximately 1956.  This will result in an improved understanding of the process, reduce the need for assessments to be appealed over time, and reduction in the over ten (10) million dollars a year in refunds and related costs that the Town of Greenburgh is responsible for annually pertaining to the Certiorari process. It will create more predictability and financial stability for the town. One of the reasons for recent tax hikes at the town, school, fire district levels is because revenues have gone down due to certiorari actions.

We will be holding neighborhood meetings in the coming months to discuss the process and to answer questions. I will keep you posted as to the public meeting dates and times; the progress of the project and when the company will be in your neighborhood.   The Town website will have a link to the Reassessment project (on the front page) for not only the Town of Greenburgh, but also the City of Yonkers and the Town of Ossining as we are all working together on this initiative. Because Greenburgh, Ossining and Yonkers are contracting with the same company and undertaking reassessment at the same time, we anticipate a cost savings to the town of about $500,000.

This is a kick off meeting with Tyler Technologies presenting in detail,  the process, time table, notification schedules etc.  Please come prepared with any questions. This will be one of many public meetings.  If you cannot attend but would like our Assessor and Tyler to speak to your neighborhood or organization we will be happy to participate in a meeting convenient to you..  We want everyone to be as knowledgeable with this process as possible.
 

Kick off meeting 7pm – 8:30pm on April 9th at Town Hall before the regularly schedule Town Board Meeting. Questions about the reassessment process, time table, who will conducting the  revaluation, what are the ramifications to residents if they don’t want the inspector to come to your house, etc.. will be answered at the meeting. Other questions can be asked.

Hope to see you on the 9th! 

PAUL FEINER
