Monthly meeting of the St Lucie County
9-12 / TEA Party
Special Guest - St Lucie County Property Appraiser - Michelle Franklin, CFA
Michelle Franklin, CFA - St Lucie County Property Appraiser
St Lucie County is 572 square miles large. On Thursday, Sept 7th we'll hear from the woman in charge of valuing each and every of the 15,946,216,000 square feet of it. The Property Appraiser is a constitutional office and probably the least understood of the five (Sheriff, County Clerk, Tax Collector, Supervisor of Elections are the other four). Yet, every budget, from county to city, from sheriff to school board, even the people who spray the mosquitoes starts with and relies on the accurate assessed valuation of our property.
TRIM notices have hit the mail boxes. Questions on how your property was valued? Think it should be worth more? Think it should be worth less? Do you know the process of appeal? Does your dog eat your grass and you want to know if it can be considered grazing lands for tax purposes? Come on and find out.
The Appraiser's Office is also a wealth of information on St Lucie County if you're buying or selling a home, or opening a business.
Fun Fact : Only about 0.4% of Americans serve in the military. In St Lucie County we have 26,500 veterans living here.
That's about 9.5% of our population - Ooooh Rah!!! (source St Lucie County Property Appraiser's website)
