Ticonderoga's values are based strictly on comparable sales within Ticonderoga, Assessor Patti Osier said.
Nationally home values have dropped 14 percent during the recession, Osier said, but Essex County is an exception to the national trend.
Residents who disagree with their assessment or who have questions are encouraged to call Osier. Contact information is included in the tax assessment impact notices that were mailed March 1.
After meeting with Osier, people who still disagree with their assessment can go to Grievance Day and appeal to the assessment board of review. Information on Grievance Day procedures is also available in the tax assessment impact notices.
