Some Areas Will Not Be Reduced

Greg Fehrenbach

PERTH AMBOY — At the November 26 Caucus Meeting, B.A. Greg Fehrenbach discussed issues pertaining to property tax assessments. He brought up the fact that the assessor (Joanne Jimenez) had appeared before the Council several times, especially to answer questions from Councilman Fernando Gonzalez.

Fehrenbach explained that the sales or adjustments are made by the county Board of Taxation. “This stopped our assessor from reducing evaluations in some neighborhoods. The Board of Taxation assessed $160 million of reduced value. Our assessor figure was $180 million of reduced value. Some of the areas will be reduced this year. There are some areas we thought would be reduced but will not be.”
