During the next several months, data collectors from Vision Appraisal will be conducting inspections of properties in New Milford as part of the town's work for the 2010 revaluation of all real estate, as mandated by state statutes.

Data collectors will ask permission to inspect the interior of your home and any other buildings on your property. They will briefly inspect the interior of homes, take exterior building measurements and ask questions about the property.

Photographs of properties will also be taken.

To ensure a home is inspected, a homeowner must sign a data collection form to verify the inspection. All data collectors will carry official photo identification and a letter of introduction.

Data collectors generally work Mondays though Fridays between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., with some additional weekend hours.

Auto description and license plates will be filed with the local police department.

Call 860-355-3133 to verify this information.
