Tyler Technology is conducting the program, the first revaluation since 1993.
A brochure explaining the process was recently mailed to residents. The revaluation aims to ensure uniform and equitable tax assessments of all property, according to city officials.
Tyler Technologies will be measuring and photographing the exteriors of the buildings and inspecting home interiors. Inspections will begin in the city’s Third Ward, near Bridgeton High School, and will systematically progress through the city over the summer months. Inspections are expected to conclude in September, 2014.
All inspectors will be clearly identified with bright safety vests bearing the company name and will have photo identification. Additionally, inspectors’ names and vehicles are on file with the city, including the police department. Residents are advised not to allow anyone to enter without proper identification.
Upon completion property owners will be notified of their preliminary property valuation, as well as procedures to review the assessment with an appraiser from Tyler Technologies in November. For more information call 1-844-370-3515.
