Nor­wich — Prop­erty data col­lec­tors for Vi­sion Gov­ern­ment So­lu­tions Inc., the firm hired by the city to con­duct the state-man­dated reval­u­a­tion of prop­erty val­ues, started work this week to de­ter­mine prop­erty val­ues for the Oct. 2018 grand list of tax­able prop­erty.

The pur­pose of the reval­u­a­tion is not to raise taxes, city As­ses­sor Donna Ral­ston said, but to cre­ate an eq­ui­table dis­tri­bu­tion of the tax bur­den.

Data col­lec­tors will start in the north­ern sec­tion of the city, vis­it­ing all build­ings to con­duct in­te­rior in­spec­tions and to ver­ify ex­te­rior mea­sure­ments. Data col­lec­tors will carry a let­ter of iden­ti­fi­ca­tion from the as­ses­sor’s of­fice, a photo ID badge and have their cars reg­is­tered with the Nor­wich Po­lice Depart­ment.

All prop­erty own­ers and ten­ants are re­quested to co­op­er­ate with data col­lec­tors to en­sure that ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion is used in the reval­u­a­tion process.

Any prop­erty own­ers with ques­tions con­cern­ing the reval­u­a­tion process can con­tact the as­ses­sor’s of­fice be­tween 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at (860) 8233723 or check the ques­tion and an­swer sec­tion on the reval­u­a­tion on the city web­site, www. nor­

The as­ses­sor’s of­fice will pro­vide up­dates as the reval­u­a­tion pro­gresses through the city.
