  • Map corrections (street vacations, lots created)
  • Variance list (for pools, sub-divisions, additions, etc.) notification to properties within 200 feet
Please note: Applications for variances are obtained in the Planning Department. Information for the variance list is obtained in the Assessor's Office.

Notice: Assessment Inspections

The annual assessment inspection cycle has begun. One week prior to the inspection, a notification card will be sent to each homeowner detailing the process. The inspections take place in groups of 1,000 and will be mailed throughout the year.  If you have not received a letter, there is no need to contact the Assessor’s Office.  The annual inspection cycle takes place in 5 year intervals and thus, your area may not be inspected this year. Appraisal Systems, Inc. will conduct the interior/exterior inspections throughout the Township. The inspectors will carry photographic identification visible at all times and wear shirts with company insignia. The inspectors will knock on the front door in an attempt to gain interior access to each property. If after repeated knocks the inspector finds the owner is not home, they are instructed to walk the property, measure the exterior and take a front and rear photo.
