Chairman Jennifer Roberts was also presented with a gavel to show appreciation for the added work service she performed as Chairman of the Board. The New Board will sworn-in on Monday, December 6 and their first regular meeting will be Tuesday, December 7.
Schedule of Values
The Board approved documents called the Uniform Schedules of Values and Standards and Rules and the Present-Use Value Schedule for 2011 Reappraisal. Bottom line- these are the standards used by the Mecklenburg County Assessor to determine new values on all 350,000 properties in Mecklenburg County, a process commonly called revaluation. The County Assessor’s Office is reappraising the properties now and notices of the new values will be in your mailbox in January. There is a special web site that answers a lot of your questions about revaluation. It is http://reval.charmeck.org
It includes Frequently Asked Questions and several instructional videos.
Business Investment Grant
The Board approved a business investment grant for Saertex USA, a manufacturer of carbon fiber fabrics. The company plans an $8m expansion of its facility in Huntersville. If the company meets all the criteria outlined in the grant, it could receive as much as $88,063 in County incentives.
