Property assessments create concerns for residents in Geneva as values spike

Property assessments are on the rise in Geneva.

Assistant City Manager/Comptroller Adam Blowers led the reassessment presentation, which was provided to city council and residents.

Jack O’Donnell, who spoke at the session, said his property value increased by 10 percent. “It’s still a thousand-dollar increase (in taxes) across the board,” he said.

Blowers said after meetings and individual sessions the total number should decline to 10 or 11 percent increase, on average. Some property owners experienced significantly higher property value increases.

“I don’t want anyone to feel hopeless (about getting their assessments lowered),” Blowers said.
