Ogdensburg, NY – The City of Ogdensburg has adopted a resolution to conduct a city-wide reassessment update project for all properties within the city. This project is designed to continue to create and maintain fair and equitable property assessments for the 2023 tax roll. To assist in this effort, GAR Associates LLC has been hired as the contractor and will be working closely with City Assessor, Mark Schnorr.
The goal of this project is to create fair and equitable property assessments at 100% of full market value.
Beginning in June 2022, GAR staff will begin reviewing each property to gather property inventory characteristics using satellite imagery. NO ONE WILL BE ENTERING PRIVATE PROPERTY FOR A PHYSICAL ON-SITE INSPECTION; however, GAR Staff will be taking digital photo(s) of the exterior of all improved parcels. Staff will attempt to capture photographs from the public right of way; however, they may need to access a driveway to capture the photograph.
While in the field, GAR STAFF WILL BE IN POSSESSION OF PROPER IDENTIFICATION WHILE TAKING PHOTOS. The City Assessment Office, as well as local police departments, will have a list of all GAR staff vehicles.
