“Extraordinary” Tax Appeals Prompt Mansfield Reassessment

From Registry News:

Following a public hearing, an ordinance authorizing an emergency appropriation to update revaluations of property within the township, was approved unanimously by the Township Committee on July 25.
   ”We are under county order . . . to reassess the property value within Mansfield Township,” said Joseph Monzo, the municipality’s chief financial officer and treasurer, during the July 25 Township Committee meeting. “We are under that order because of the extraordinary number of tax appeals that have been filed on behalf of the homeowners, residents and property owners. They have told us we need to revalue our properties.”
