            RE Property Revaluation – Avitar Work Protocol Given the COVID-19 Pandemic: In light of the Governor’s announcement regarding the State of Emergency and School closures, we have felt the need to be proactive and safe. Given the contracts we have in place, we still need to work and keep on schedule as much as possible. Our field staff are still out in the field working, however, they have been advised not to enter properties for interior inspections. They will still visit, knock, step back and gather information from the taxpayers at the door and continue on with any exterior work needed. This is in line with the CDC recommendations regarding avoidance of close contact. If taxpayers are sick, they should be advised not to open the door at all. We will be sending letters at a later date to complete interior inspections where needed. The safety of our staff and all taxpayers is one of our top concerns and we will work diligently to ensure everyone stays as safe as possible. We recognize that we may encounter children home alone or with their parents and want to get the word out regarding our protocol. If this pandemic continues, this may alter how we handle the informal hearing process for those towns with updates/revaluations this year, as well. We will post updates as they occur on our website and send further notification if and when things change.  – Loren Martin, Director, Assessing Operations
