Annually, and no later than February 15th of each year, the annual assessment list is compiled and a copy is made available at the Town Administrative Offices for public inspection. The availability of this assessment list advertised by public notice in local newspapers and on the Town website.
Any taxpayer who is "aggrieved by the assessment" must notify the Town in writing within 20 days of the February 15th posting. Thereafter, Town Council or the Board of Assessment that may be appointed, shall hear and consider any appeals that are timely filed.
