October tasks

Board of Review Appeals

Continued work for first round of BOR appeals is in process.

Most BOR appeal in-person hearings have been scheduled in November

Assessor Office physical location move

  • Assessor moved file cabinets (THANK YOU JIM HILLIARD & Staff) into the new Assessor office. Some supplies had been previously moved over. Desk will be moved over this week.
    • Additional moving tasks are in the process and being planned as well as interview process for Office Manager.
    • This new office space will allow the Assessor’s office to begin hiring STAFF as well as provide a location for the Assessor to directly meet with constituents.

Projected Levy amounts

  • As I am sure Bill Wagner will report on in more detail, the preliminary Equalized Assessed Values for 2021 from Green Garden Township assessments are as follows:
    • 2021 EAV is at 197,572,698
    • 2020 EAV was 175,582,981
    • This is an increase of 21,989,717 in EAV value from Green Garden Township properties.
    • I am working on providing Bill a breakdown of how much of that roughly 22 million EAV increase is directly from NEW construction versus Additions or Improvements.
    • SUMMARY – this significant increase will provide added revenue to all of the Green Garden Township Taxing Bodies.
