Public Disclosure Letter:  FY23 Proposed Values

On November 14, 2022, the Department of Revenue (DOR) informed the Shutesbury Assessors they have granted preliminary certification of Shutesbury’s proposed fiscal year 2023 assessments.  The recertification process must be completed every five years to keep the Town in compliance with a state requirement that all property be at full and fair cash market value.

The Board of Assessors contracted with Bishop & Associates in developing the new assessments, which are based on the calendar year 2021 sales analysis and field reviews.

The new proposed values will be available for public review for the period beginning Wednesday, November 16, 2022 through Tuesday, November 22, 2022 on the Town website, and at the Shutesbury Town Hall.
