In an effort to alert County residents of its on-going county wide reassessment project:
Monroe County has contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc. of Dayton Ohio to provide detailed, high-resolution street level images of properties. Tyler Technologies field staff will photograph properties from customized white vans that will be clearly marked with signs indicating that they are conducting an imaging project for the county. This imaging project will begin within the next several weeks and continue to the end of October or beginning of November.
All personnel assigned to this project have been issued photo identification badges that must be visible at all times.
Local law enforcement has been notified of van descriptions and their locations.
All photographs are taken from public right-of-way whenever possible.
No images will be taken of homeowners or children when present on residential properties.
The updated digital photos will:
Correct up-to-date property information to ensure fair and equitable property values.
Improve the overall quality of the county’s real estate data.
Save taxpayers money by making the property tax administration process more efficient.
Assist homeowners and businesses with “before” photos in case of loss.
Enhance emergency management recovery reports necessary for state and federal assistance.
Validate property addresses to identify homes for fire, police and medical emergency response.
