Board of Assessors Property Inspections

The Assessor's Office will be conducting an annual inspection of properties sold during calendar year 2015 and properties issued a Building Permit during calendar year 2014/2015. A representative from the Board of Assessors will visit your property over the next few weeks.

If you are not home at the time of the visit, a notice will be left for you to contact the Assessor's office to schedule an appointment to conduct an interior inspection and verify that the permit work is complete.

This assessment process is vital in establishing property values. Cooperation is greatly appreciated.
