-PRESS RELEASE

 

For Immediate Release: Press Release for Reappraisal of Qualified Homes

 

At the November 30, 2017 regular meeting of the Montgomery County Emergency Services

District #7, the board voted on and passed unanimously, that homes within the territorial boundaries

of MCESD#1 that qualify and were damaged by Hurricane Harvey flood waters will be reappraised

for their 2017 MCESD#7 ad valorem taxes based off the current market valuations and conditions

of their homes. The County Tax Assessor estimates roughly 463 damaged homes within our

territorial boundaries will qualify for a reappraisal allowing those who have already paid their 2017

MCESD#7 ad valorem taxes to receive a refund based off of this reappraisal. Those homes who have

not paid their 2017 MCESD#7 ad valorem taxes yet will get an updated reappraisal of their home

based off the current market and condition and will pay that amount.

 

The Montgomery County Emergency Services District #7 understands the amount of

devastation and financial burdens that Hurricane Harvey has put on the tax payers of MCESD#7.

The loss and damage of property from this storm will take years to rebuild and recover. That's why

the MCESD#7 board unanimously decided this was the right thing to do. Though our fiscal budget

is underway for 2018 we estimate a levy loss from what was originally voted on and approved in

our operations budget due to this reappraisal. Rest assured MCESD#7 and the East Montgomery

County Fire Department are fiscally responsible with taxpayer's money and we will make the

proper amendments to our budget that are necessary to continue and provide the best fire protection,

with this loss of taxable ad valorem income to the district.

 

If we can be of any assistance in this process to you or if you have any questions, please

don't hesitate to contact us or the County Tax Assessor.

 

 

Sincerely,

Howard Rinewalt, Fire Chief

East Montgomery County Fire

Montgomery County ESD #7
