DARIEN, Conn. -- Darien Tax Assessor Anthony Homicki will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, at Town Hall to discuss how property revaluation is conducted and where the tax money goes.
Aside from Homicki, other experts in the field of land valuation will be on hand to help provide information. Speakers will include Doug Milne, from Kelly Associates Real Estate and Ronald E. Kowalski from the Stamford-based law firm Caccace, Tusch & Santagata.
Properties were last revalued in Darien in 2008. over 1,000 of the 6,400 homes in the town appealed their revaluation. Some of the cases are still pending.
Homicki's meeting is an effort to better explain the process to prevent a similar logjam.
“Just come on December 4th and bring your questions and your ears," Milne said in a statement. "No one was complaining when the real estate market was going up 15% a year that their taxes were too low."
Darien Town Hall is located at 2 Renshaw Road.
