Assessors

 
Van Pic-Natick

 We have two projects going on this fall!  The first is to visit and inspect all business personal property accounts in the Town, including home businesses.  This project is being undertaken to comply with the Department of Revenue's certification requirements.  This project began on October 18th and will conclude at the end of November.  All appraisers will have photo identification.

Our second project is to update photographs of all properties in the Town.  Our original photos date back to 1996!  Our contractor will be using a customized van (see picture above) which will be clearly marked and takes detailed, high resolution images.  The imaging crew will be in Town starting on November 6th and will complete the project by the end of November.  The crew will be taking pictures 7 days a week.

We greatly appreciate property owners' cooperation in these important projects.  Any questions can be addressed to our office at 508-647-6420 or email us at assessors@natickma.org.
