Annually, the Assessor's Office reviews valuations and makes adjustments to the valuations that include any additions and deletions.  The department is also responsible for maintaining accurate records of property ownership.

The Assessor's Office is a clearing house of information such as building and land records, monthly sales transactions and assessment valuation information used by other City departments, the public, and their representatives (appraisers, brokers, attorneys, surveyors, title companies, etc.). Reports are often generated from the commitment file for use by various city departments, as well as the office being the source of addresses for public hearing notification.  Computer reports containing various assessment and ownership information can be purchased for a reasonable fee.
