A Resolution to Execute a Contract for Reassessment of Real Property in Fauquier County

Topic Description:

A selection panel made up of representatives from GIS, the Commissioner of  the Revenue's office, and County Administration issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the appraisal of all real property at its fair market value in money as of January 1, 2006.  Five proposals were received in response to the RFP, and the committee determined Pearson Appraisal Services, Incorporated, of Richmond, Virginia, to be the most qualified firm to provide this service. During a work session held on May 17, 2004, Tom Morelli, the State Property Tax Manager, and Fred Pearson of Pearson Appraisal Services, Incorporated, met with the Board of Supervisors to address questions and concerns regarding the upcoming reassessment. A two-party contract that incorporates the original RFP and Pearson's response, in a format previously approved by the County Attorney, has been prepared for consideration by the Board of Supervisors.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

The lump sum cost for the Reassessment, to be completed by December 31, 2005, is $ 595,838.25, with the cost per parcel for ongoing new construction appraisals at $18.70/parcel.
