Property inspectors and appraisers have completed their property revaluation of Hillsdale, according to borough Tax Assessor Patrick Wilkins.
Inspectors had to visit every property in the borough and report data like the number of rooms, the quality of kitchens and bathrooms, the type of heating system and whether or not the home includes other items like a fireplace, deck or patio. About 90 percent of property owners allowed the inspectors in, according to Wilkins.
"Things have been going very well," Wilkins said.
The last of the notices with the new property values went out last week and all residents should receive theirs by Friday, Wilkins said. Property owners can schedule appointments with the appraisers to discuss their assessment if they believe there is an error.
Mayor Max Arnowitz recommended that owners take the opportunity to inspect their appraisals.
"There have been mistakes in the past," Arnowitz said.
Anyone who believes their assessment includes an error can bring it up with an appraiser or appeal the issue to the county.
Wilkins said he expected the whole process to be complete by the end of the month and for the county to mail out postcards with the final assessments in early March.
