Town of Frenchville Revaluation
Meet the Team

Brandon Shawn

Brandon is the Town of Frenchville’s Assessor. Shawn is part of his team for the Revaluation, there may be more team members coming but they will have IDs like this.

During our Town Meeting on March 21, 2023, Article 5 read:
" To see if the Town will vote to authorize the Board of Select People to enter a two-year contract with Saucier Services to complete a town wide
Computerized Municipal Equalization and to update the existing TRIO Assessing Software to coincide with the requirements of the proposed Equalization project.
Funding for this project, estimated at a total cost of $131,100 shall be transferred from the unappropriated Surplus Reserve account, and shall be combined with
funding in the existing General Government Property Tax Revaluation Reserve account."
Recommended by the Board of Select People
Recommended by the Budget Committee
 
This Article was passed by the towns people. 

The town also had a special town meeting back on May 24, 2023, at the community center to explain and answer questions. We are currently doing a revaluation of the town as it hasn’t been done since 1978.
In 2008 the town had a 35% in office valuation increase across the board, this was not a revaulation as we are doing now, rather, that 35% increase was applied to all homes in Frenchville. This revaulation
will look at each home separately. You will see Shawn or Brandon come to your home. They will measure the outside of your house and outbuildings. They will ask to come inside to check your electrical,
plumbing, other components of your home and ask you various questions. If you are not at home, they will leave you a flyer asking you to call to set up a time for them to come back. Some home values may go down,
some home values may go up. You do not have to let them into your home, but just know that if you don't, they will have to estimate the current value, and it could be higher than the current value. While some values
may go up, the towns value given by the state will also go up to 100% or better, this will give you the full value of the States homestead and Veterans exemption, and it is anticipated that the Towns mil rate will decrease.
