All proposals must be submitted by June 25. The County Manager will make a provider recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners on June 3.
The deadline has passed for potential providers to acknowledge their interest in conducting a review of the 2011 Property Revaluation. The Board of County Commissioners approved the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the review at its June 5 meeting. June 11 was the deadline for interested parties to acknowledge their interest in and intent to submit a proposal for the review and five service providers submitted the proper paperwork. Formal proposals are due to the County by June 25. After that, staff will evaluate the proposals and the County Manager will recommend a provider to the Board at its July 3 meeting.
The Board asked for the review after some property owners questioned their new appraisal and the appeal process done by the Assessor’s Office and the Board of Equalization and Review.
