Office of New York State Real Property Tax Services

Re:  Benefits of keeping property assessments current


            Deputy Supervisor Krycia introduced David M. Wilkins, Real Property Analyst 2 for the New York State Office of Real Property Services.  Mr. Wilkins distributed folders, which explain the Reassessment Plan and the Aid Package to the Town Board members, the Town Clerk, which is on file in the Town Clerk’s office and Ann Knack, Administrative Assistant.


            Mr. Wilkins stated that the last Market Value Survey, which establishes the Equalization Rate, was last done in Eden in 1994.  The Equalization Rate in 2000 is 90%, which has dropped from 98.6%.


            The State has come up with an aid package, which allows the municipality with assessments at 100% up to $5.00 per parcel, which means $17,500 for the Town of Eden of aid is available.


            Mr. Wilkins went on to explain the benefits of this plan and fielded several questions from the Town Board and residents in attendance.  The Town Board will need to review the packet they were given and make a decision as to the direction they will take.


            Deputy Supervisor Krycia made note to the other Town Board members that he was in receipt of a letter from the Library Board regarding the conditions of the parking lot.  It will be taken up for consideration at some time in the near future.
