PROPERTY DATA INSPECTIONS - The Assessors are providing notice that we will conducting property data inspections in Harvard this spring to collect data relating to building permits. The data collector is a reperesentative of the Assessors' Office Regional Resource Group who will carry a field ID card, have a letter from the office, and use a personal vehicle.
The property inspection takes only several moments and includes an exterior inspection and measure of improvements and an interior inspection to verify data such as bedroom and bathroom count, physical condition, square footage of living space. This ensures that the data which your assessments are based is correct and will result in full and fair cash value.
