Town of Jay Reassessment Project

The town held a meeting on December 8, 2016 to discuss the upcoming reassessment project. I know many of you were unable to attend. Two of the AAPOA board members attended the meeting and took the handouts.  Paul Longenderfer has placed all the handouts at the top of the website under the Owner Resources banner.  Feel free to read and/or print them for yourselves.

TOWN OF JAY REASSESSMENT PROJECT

We are aware of a meeting that we think may be of interest to many home/property owners within the Acres. This information first appeared in the Jay Community News couple of days ago. We are also sending out the information in a mass email to the people for whom we have email addresses.

Over the past number of years, the AAPOA Board has fielded a number of inquiries from home and landowners regarding the assessment levels on their property(ies) within the Acres.
Apparently, in 2017 the Town of Jay will be carrying out a Town-wide Real Property reassessment project.
This coming Thursday, December 8th at 6PM, at the Town Hall in AuSable Forks (11 School Lane) the Town will be hosting an informational meeting for all property owners.
The presenters will be:
1. Donna Bramer- Jay Assessor
2. John Stack- NYS Real Property Analyst
3. Charli Lewis- Essex County Real Property Director

The presenters will cover:
1. The Assessment Process
2. The role of property owners
3. How Real Property works

Questions about this reassessment project will be answered.

If you have concerns regarding the assessment levels of property that you own within the Acres, this may prove to be a very informative meeting to attend.
WHAT: Town of Jay Reassessment Project
WHEN: Thursday December 8th
TIME: 6 PM
WHERE: Town Hall in AuSable Forks (11 School Lane)

New Water Tank Moves Toward Completion

Forever Wild Water Company has been working hard since the spring to get the new water tank up and running before the winter. It is very impressive to see. It is ahead of schedule and should be finished by the end of October.  I am attaching a couple of photos so you will know what I mean. It should meet our needs for many years to come.

Beware the Bear in AuSable Acres

There have been several sightings of a large bear tearing into bird feeders in the AuSable Drive and Elm St. area. If you haven’t seen one yet and you have a bird feeder, you probably will.  It would be a good idea to take your feeders down! You have been advised!

Lake Eaton Gets Rid of Dead Wood!

On Friday, June 17, a group of AAPOA members worked for most of the day to clear out dead trees and remove brush that was interfering with the growth of other trees. The end result is that the lake area really looks lovely and our members and guests will be able to enjoy it during the picnic on 7/2 and beyond. Vern Gonyea, Loyd Brewer, Frank Krueger, Kevin McDonough, Ian Ellbogen, Kathy and Pete DeFina made up the work crew. Thank you all from the rest of us. This was very hard work and is greatly appreciated. Work crews, both on and off the trails, could always use more help. If you wish to volunteer, please send me an email and we will add you to our list.  See you on July 2nd.

You have to have the proper tools.
