ASSESSMENT GRIEVANCE INFORMATION

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES
Any person who pays property taxes can grieve an assessment, including:
• property owners
• purchasers
• tenants who are required to pay property taxes pursuant to a lease or written agreement
Only the assessment on the current tentative assessment roll can be grieved - you can’t grieve
assessments from prior years.
There is no cost to grieve an assessment and it does not require you to hire a lawyer.

SPRINGWATER Grievance Day is

June 4, 2014 Wednesday 4 PM – 8 PM

Revaluation 2014
Citizens - I am aware that there has been some great upset over the recent reval that the Town of Springwater has just undergone. I ask anyone that is upset or disagrees with their new assessment to PLEASE - contact the new assessor Holley Smalt and arrange for an informal meeting with her to discuss the issues with your parcel(s). I do know that she is currently booked up this Saturday and Monday but that she has openings for the following Monday(s) and possible other days as well. You can call the assessors office at the town hall 669-2647 and leave a message or follow the link on the town website  go to departments - Town assessor and leave her an email or contact the cell number listed there. I DO sympathize with your plights and am usually in my office on Saturdays between 9am and Noon if you wish to speak with me. PLEASE be aware that neither I nor the Town Board members had any input into the values - this is the Assessors responsibility and we (the Town Board) do not have the power to change it - only the Assessor or the Grievance Board can do that. I ask that you speak with the assessor, make sure that she has correct information in your file about your property first of all as that is what she used to help her determination. If you have documents such as a recent real estate or bank appraisal bring that with you as well to your meeting with her. Sincerely - Your Town Supervisor

Springwater History
Springwater was formed from Sparta and Naples on April 17, 1816. It is in the SE corner of Livingston County. It features rolling hills, the highest summits being 600 to 1,000 ft. above the valleys. The principal stream is the inlet of Hemlock Lake, which flows north through the town. The Cohocton River rises in the SE part of the township and flows south into Steuben County. Nestled within the township is the hamlet of Webster Crossing.
