reassessment forum planned for march 20th
The Town of Greenburgh is partnering with some other communities in Westchester in preparing for a municipal wide reassessment of properties. The last time properties in Greenburgh were reassessed was close to 60 years ago. The 2013 capital budget will include funding to start the project . The League of Women Voters is holding a forum on this issue on Wednesday, March 20th at New Rochelle City Hall. Edye McCarthy, Town Assessor, will be one of the panelists, along with several other qualified individuals.
You're invited to this forum. Learn about experiences of other communities that have embarked on reassessment. If you would like Edye McCarthy and town officials to meet with your neighborhood association or neighbors to discuss reassessment - we would be pleased to do so. It's important that people be educated and understand the benefits of reassessment to the town. It will stop the bleeding--at every Town Board meeting we issue significant tax refunds to businesses that have successfully filed tax grievances. Once a reassessment is done there won't be many certiorari's. Please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to host a special presentation for your neighbors on reassessment.
REMINDER- 225th anniversary celebration of the town of Greenburgh will be held Thursday, March 7th at 6:30 PM at Greenburgh Town Hall. You're invited to our reception. And, to the ceremonial Town Board meeting beginning after the reception.
