In light of the imminent public health threat declared by Nassau County, the Town of Oyster Bay Receiver of Taxes has canceled the upcoming Property Tax Grievance Workshops scheduled for March 24th in Oyster Bay and March 25th in Hicksville. These cancellations are being made out of an abundance of caution, and the Town of Oyster Bay has intensified cleaning procedures to frequently disinfect facilities and is operating under protocols that meet or exceed the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local Health authorities.
“While Nassau County determines your value, we in Town government want to make sure you know that you have a right as homeowner to challenge your assessment, and my office has worked diligently to help as many residents as possible ahead of the April 2nd deadline,” Receiver of Taxes Jeff Pravato said. “Unfortunately, it is in the best interest of our residents health and general welfare to cancel these upcoming workshops, as we must do everything we can to protect our senior citizens, and our most vulnerable populations who have been most affected by this public health threat.”
Receiver of Taxes Pravato also noted that while these workshops will be cancelled, his office is still ready to help residents through a useful and informative online video on learning how to grieve the assessment placed on your home by Nassau County.
