What is an informal hearing?

An informal hearing is a forum meant to answer questions on the new property valuations. Homeowners are asked to come prepared with documentation regarding specific issues with their new assessments. Staff will take notes as to the property owners' concerns and specifics regarding their property. Each property that had an informal hearing will then be reviewed on an individual basis to determine if there is a change of value warranted.
