A Message from Mayor Darlene Post
Tuesday, March 19, 2013
As many of you know, the Township recently completed a Municipal Wide Reassessment. Value letters for all properties have been mailed.
The reassessment was needed to better align the values to the current market conditions. Last year, the Township faced more than 450 tax appeals, which created financial hardship not only in settling the appeals, but also in legal fees. The enormity of the financial impact forced the Township to go before the State Local Finance Board to request approval for a $750,000 refunding bond ordinance. Conducting the reassessment brings the values into alignment with today’s economy and real estate market, so while we can anticipate an impact on the tax rate, we do so recognizing that we are basing our budget on real values and therefore, will not spend 2013 being reactive to the enormous burden of tax appeals.
