The will be joining the City of Yonkers and the Town of Greenburgh to evaluate the costs of doing an assessment revaluation of their communities. After discussions with the Village of Briarcliff, the Village of Ossining and the two involved school systems, the Town of Ossining Board has determined that it is in the best interest of the community to move forward by requesting more information concerning a complete revaluation of the entire Town of Ossining.
“The high cost of grievances, as well as the ever-changing equalization rate, has us examining different ways of accomplishing our goal of ensuring that each resident and commercial property owner only pays their fair and equitable share of property taxes. The last revaluation in Ossining was done in 1972, 40 years ago. Other communities have decided to join Yonkers and Greenburgh in this effort. We are hoping that Westchester County, as well as the State of New York, will work with these and other forward-thinking communities to accomplish this goal for the benefit of all involved.” Supervisor Donnelly announced.
The Town of Ossining Board wants to thank the Boards of the two Villages for their support in this matter.
