The Town of Greenburgh is partnering with other communities in Westchester County to prepare for a joint reassessment.
The last time properties in Greenburgh were reassessed was close to 60 years ago, and town officials are planning to include funding in the 2013 capital budget to begin the “long-overdue” project.
Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner is encouraging residents to attend an upcoming event to learn about the experiences of other communities that have engaged in reassessment.
The League of Women Voters is hosting a forum on reassessment Wednesday, March 20th at New Rochelle City Hall. Town Assessor Edye McCarthy will be one of the panelists, along with several other qualified individuals.
Feiner said McCarthy and town officials are available to meet with neighborhood associations or residents to discuss reassessment. Contact Feiner via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to host a special presentation.
“It’s important that people be educated and understand the benefits of reassessment to the town, Feiner said. “It will stop the bleeding. At every Town Board meeting we issue significant tax refunds to businesses that have successfully filed tax grievances.”
