More information on revaluation
City Hallways reported on Thursday that the city's Assessment and Taxation Department scheduled the first in a series of public meetings across Buffalo to educate property owners on the revaluation process and to address people's questions and concerns.
The plan to hold public information sessions came up at a June meeting of the Common Council in which appraisal contractors said that the revaluation process that was started in 2010 was almost complete.
Now, the tax department is working to set up one meeting for each district in the fall and one meeting for each district in the spring. That will provide 18 opportunities for folks to learn what reassessments mean for neighborhoods and property owners.
Although each district will have its own meeting, anyone is welcome to attend of the public sessions in any of the districts.
The first Revaluation Information Session will be held from 6 to 7:30 a.m. Wednesday in Diefedorf Hall on the University at Buffalo's South Campus in the city's University District.
Stay tuned for additional meetings as information becomes available.
