Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity Mayors Sign Agreement to Begin Regionalized County Assessor Program

WHAT: 

Gloucester County Freeholders and several Mayors of the towns included in the first phase of the Gloucester County Assessors Office program will join to sign a Cooperation Agreement memorializing regionalized tax assessment on a countywide basis.

Gloucester County has been designated as the pilot county by the State of New Jersey to pursue this regionalized program.  The program is being funded by the state and it is anticipated to save county taxpayers over $1.5 million annually.

Eleven of the 24 municipalities within the County will participate in the 2010 round of the County Assessors Office and the state will be reimbursing the county $7.7 million over the next five years to cover the cost of revaluations to all of the municipalities.
