Due to the extra effort put in by Legislator Craig Johnson, Port Washington and Manhasset residents will be having their property reassessments mailed out 20 days earlier, on Aug. 9 rather than on Aug. 29. This gives residents more time to ask questions or get their own appraisals.
The legislator noted that with Port and Manhasset being amongst the towns hardest hit by the new assessment, it was only fair to give them more time to challenge the new figures. He then appealed to the Chairman of the Nassau County Board of Assessors Charles O'Shea and convinced him to move the mailing date up.
Upon receiving their notices, Port and Manhasset homeowners are encouraged to carefully examine them and contact CLT (Cole Layman Trumble, the county's real property reassessment agent) regarding any discrepancies of property or estimated market value. Nassau residents may contact a CLT representative at 873-9701 to arrange an appointment at the company's information Review Office located at 1100 Prospect Avenue in Westbury to discuss how the values were established. CLT will conduct information review meetings with residents from July 15 through Nov. 20.
