Delaware County Council has contracted with Tyler Technologies to provide property appraisal services for the county’s 2020 general reassessment.
The reassessment, which was ordered by the Court in March 2017, will be effective for the 2021 tax year. The project, which is being implemented through the Delco Treasurer’s Office, will utilize Tyler’s appraisal and street-imaging services.
During the initial phase of this project, Tyler will provide the county with detailed, high-resolution, street-level images beginning this month. Tyler will photograph properties from inside white vans, which will be clearly marked. The images will only be taken from the street, and Tyler staff will not enter private property. The reassessment project includes data gathering, verification of data, establishment of assessed values, and an opportunity to appeal.
The digital images will improve the quality of visual data used by the county and Tyler appraisers. The project will also allow verification and correction of address discrepancies. Additionally, the images will be helpful for emergency management recovery reports, necessary for state and federal assistance.
Tyler staff will be in Delaware County throughout the reassessment process, concluding in 2020. During the duration of the project, Tyler will be in communication with the county, providing officials and law enforcement updates on current collection locations and expected duration.
To alleviate any privacy concerns, images will not be taken of homeowners and/or children. For further information, residents can contact the Delco Treasurer’s Office at 610-891-4879.
