The Vestal Town Assessor responds to angry home owners.
Last night's Town Board meeting was packed with people questioning their property reassessments.
Town Assessor Mark Minoia says he will not attend town board meetings as requested.
He read a statement for the media, stressing it's not the proper venue for discussing the assessment process.
Minoia says homeowners need to follow the correct steps if they feel there are errors.
"The majority of the town's residents are taking advantage of the prescribed process. It would be improper and inequitable to allow a small group of individuals to alter this process," said Minoia.
The first step is to set up a meeting with Maxwell Appraisal.
To make an appointment call 1-866-727-2650.
The next step is to file a grievance with the Town between May 1st and the 26th.
Final assessment numbers will be released July 1st.
