NEW BRITAIN - A Fairfield company will be assisting the city Assessorâ€™s Office in performing this yearâ€™s required revaluation.
Mayor Erin Stewart on Monday notified residents that personnel from Municipal Valuation Services will be visiting homes to collect data. The information will be used in the cityâ€™s 2017 revaluation process, mandated by state statute to take place every five years.
Personnel from the company will be inspecting about 5,000 residential properties throughout New Britain in the coming months, Stewart said. Every taxpayer whose property requires an inspection will be notified by mail.
Field personnel will wear company identification and have a letter of introduction from the Assessorâ€™s Office with them at the time of the inspection.
The property values determined through the revaluation process will be provided to property owners in November.
The assessments will be used in determining tax bills for the 2018-19 fiscal year.
Stewart said the police department is aware of the inspections and relevant information about the Municipal Valuation Services personnel is on file with the city.
