Town of Delaware to move highway department
In other business, the board adopted a resolution authorizing a reassessment for the 2015 assessment roll. Sykes said the town had to adopt the resolution before the end of this year in order to have the reassessment.
The resolution states, “The Town of Delaware is convinced that a reassessment is necessary to achieve a stated level of assessment at 100%.”
The resolution also authorizes the town assessor to develop and submit a plan for cyclical reassessment to ensure the next full reappraisal will occur no more than four years after 2015.
The assessor may, with the support of the board, sustain the level of assessment in interim years at 100% through market adjustment factor analysis, reappraisal, or a combination of methods, according to the resolution.
Computer-assisted mass appraisal systems, and technical advice and guidance, are available by cooperative agreement with the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance’s Office of Real Property Tax Services.
The reorganizational meeting is scheduled for January 10, 2013, at 7 p.m.
