Washington Township Council Debates Property Reassessment, Health Plan Changes, and Tax Fairness

Overview: In a recent Washington Township Council meeting, members deliberated on a wide range of issues, including the potential reassessment of property values and the implementation of a new health insurance plan for town employees. The discussion on tax revaluation was a focal point, with the council considering the merits of conducting a complete reassessment, possibly followed by a four or six-year assessment cycle. This approach is aimed at reflecting the true market values of properties, particularly in light of upcoming developments, as highlighted by Township Engineer Glen Beckmeyer. The council mulled over three options for tax reassessment and the financial implications for taxpayers, with Council President Michael Ullman advocating for a multi-year plan to reassess more properties over a longer period.
