Coventry votes for annual reassessment

COVENTRY – The Coventry Town Board voted unanimously to move to an annual property tax reassessment process at the governing body’s year-end meeting, held last night at the town hall.



According to Town Supervisor Janice O’Shea, the action will enable the town to qualify for up to $5 per parcel in state aid through the New York State Office of Real Property Services, as well as reduce residential assessments by between 3 to 5 percent on the town’s 2010 assessment roll.
