Selectboard Present:Peggy Pschirrer (Chair); Steven Dalessio; Cheryl Mayberry

 

CALL TO ORDER:  Mrs. Pschirrer called this Selectboardmeeting to order at 6:30 PM in the Walpole Town Hall.  She advised this meeting is being recorded and asked anyone wishing to speak to identify themselves for the record.  There was one member of the public in attendance.

 

NEW BUSINESS:  

Mrs. Phyllis Daley:  Mrs. Phyllis Daley of North Walpole is concerned because the assessed value of her property does not agree with the letter she received or with the tax card. For 2017,the tax card states $206,100. She is questioning the 2018 tax bill as it has a value of $213,200.  Nothing has been done to her property to increase the value. An Avitar representative had asked her if the roof was going to be repaired. Mrs. Daley replied that it was not going to be yet. The tax card states the roof will be done in 2018. Mr. Dalessio pointed out the difference in value of $7,100 is within the realm of error.  Mrs. Daley had previously discussed this with Mrs. Downing in the Selectboard office. Mrs. Pschirrer explained the Town has a contract with Avitar Associates.  They were hired in 2018 to do a certain portion of the Town each year. Five years from now, they will not have to do a reappraisal of the whole Town all at once.  She recommended Mrs. Daley fill out an abatement application and get it into the Selectboard Office by the March 1st deadline. The Selectboard cannot make any adjustments. The abatement application will make Avitar Associates look at the property and their report again.
