We will also be sending out a phone message a week or two before they are in your area thru the Vermont Alert (VT-Alert) system. You can also call the office anytime to check 802-295-3077.
The VGS staff person will not be assessing your furniture, decorative elements, appliances or personal items that are not built-in, or any other removable elements.
We strongly encourages all residents to allow an interior inspection. It is vital in having accurate records to determine your assessment. However, if you deny access and later want to appeal the valuation, an interior inspection is required at that time and your appeal will not be considered without it. If you choose not to admit the VGS representative, the VGS representative will appraise your home from a street view. There may still be an increase or decrease in the value of your property. Refusing entry does not mean that a new assessment will not occur.
The VGS representatives will have two identification badges, one from the Town and one from VGS. All have been employed by VGS for more than 15 years. All of the representatives, with one exception, were on the staff who prepared the Town’s reappraisal in 2007.
If you are concerned about someone in your neighborhood, you are encouraged to call the Hartford Police Department or the Town of Hartford Assessor’s Office to verify that the person at your door legitimately represents VGS. Also ask to see BOTH forms of ID.
If you are concerned about being alone then we encourage you to invite a neighbor, a friend, or a family member to be with you during an interior inspection so that you might feel more secure.
More information about how to appeal and the time frame within which an appeal may be filed will be provided when the new appraised values are issued.
Vermont Alert (http://vtalert.gov) is a free service for users. It allows the public to sign up for and receive notifications through a number of delivery systems such as text, e-mail, telephone, or game console. Users will create accounts, chose their local area, select what types of alerts they wish to receive, and identify which delivery system they wish to use to receive those notifications.
Vermont Alert is hosted and maintained by the Vermont Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, but is available to emergency responders state-wide for use in alerting people in their local jurisdictions.
