2022 Recorded District Meetings

Board of Review Certification Training

Starting this year, at least one BOR member must be certified every year. Lawmakers made this change from “every two years” to every year as a strategy to increase the accuracy and efficiency of the assessment process. As is evident in both recent lawsuits and legislative attempts this winter, the assessment process is under constant pressure. WTA recommends all BOR members and preferably all town board members attend this training. A fully educated group of town officials will help you avoid pitfalls and keep you abreast of any law changes.
