WARRENSBURG - Starting the second week of April, the Warrensburg Town Assessor will be circulating around town taking new photographs of Warrensburg properties.
Most of the time, Assessor Greg Klingler will be using the Town's black-and-white car identified with "Assessor" emblazoned on its side, he announced Monday. Occasionally, Klingler will be walking around the town, mainly within the hamlet, taking photographs. It is estimated that this process will be ongoing for the remainder of the year.
The tentative 2010 assessment roll will be published on or about May 1 and will be available for public inspection from then on in the Warrensburg Town Hall.
New York State has set the 2010 STAR exemption levels as follows in their program of partial school tax relief:
A portion of $29,080 of primary residential assessments is exempt for the Basic STAR program, and $56,490 for the Enhanced STAR.
This represents a decrease this year of $3,590 for Basic STAR and $5,370 for the Enhanced STAR.
Overall, since the 2008 revaluation, New York State has decreased the STAR exemptions in Warrensburg by $20,640 and has stopped sending the STAR rebate checks to property owners throughout the state.
