New AVI outreach sessions scheduled

The administration has scheduled more outreach sessions for people who have questions about or need help with the city's new property-tax system, the Actual Value Initiative, or AVI.

Attending residents can get help understanding their assessment notices, which were mailed out starting last month, and filling out paperwork like an assessment appeal and a homestead exemption application (to get a tax break, if you own the house you live in). The sessions are intended to help people in one-on-one meetings, not through a townhall-style meeting.
