RCL Discussion: Town Assesing

This text is to promote  discussion.   This is starting  information, please remember that opinions are “not right or wrong”, just opinions and information to get discussions going.  

Rye just fired our Town Assessor after about a year on the job.

From April 2014 to April 2015, a period where we did not re-asses property values, our total assessed value increased 4.5% or $81 million.  The previous year, it increased just under 1%.

The previous Town Assessor quit after 1 year on the job.

It could just be bad luck or maybe there are additional questions that should be answered?

What do you think?
