Mid-Hudson Region Enters Phase One Reopening Tuesday, May 26, 2020

Governor Cuomo announced this weekend that the Mid-Hudson region – which includes Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties – has met the criteria to begin Phase One reopening today, Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

Only businesses in the construction, non-food related agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting, contactless retail, manufacturing, and wholesale trade industries are eligible to reopen as part of Phase One. Detailed breakdowns of these industries are listed below.

In addition to those businesses included in Phase One, the State has also expanded the list of businesses that are deemed essential and therefore are not bound by the Governor’s workforce reduction restrictions. Additionally, Metro-North has announced expanded peak service on the Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven lines beginning Wednesday, May 27 to accommodate Phase One reopening in the Mid-Hudson region.

Businesses in these industries that are permitted to reopen in Phase One must develop a written Business Safety Plan and read and affirm industry specific guidelines prior to reopening. Essential businesses that have been operating prior to Phase One must also develop a written Business Safety Plan. The Business Safety Plan does not have to be submitted to a state agency for approval, but it must be posted conspicuously on the premises of the business and made available to the New York State Department of Health or local health or safety authorities upon inspection. The businesses must also adhere to specific industry guidelines established by the State. Industry specific guidelines and template Business Safety Plans are available online.

Changes to the 2020 Assessment Calendar

At their Regular Meeting on Tuesday, May 12, the Town Board adopted changes to the 2020 Assessment calendar authorized pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order 202.22. Property owners will have an additional 30 days to review their change in assessment for 2020 prior to the Tentative Roll being filed. This allows additional time for property owners to schedule virtual informal review meetings with Tyler Technologies prior to the filing of the Tentative Roll. Once the Tentative Roll is filed, property owners will have additional time to file a grievance with the Board of Assessment Review. Please note this option only became legally available to the Town Board on April 20, 2020 when the Executive Order was issued by Governor Cuomo.

The Town Board adopted the following changes to the 2020 Assessment Calendar:

  • Tentative Roll filing date is now June 30, 2020 (it was previously June 1, 2020);
  • Grievance Day is now July 21, 2020 (it was previously June 16, 2020).

2020 Reappraisal Project Update

All property owners should have received Preliminary Change of Assessment Notices in the mail. Please note, if your assessed property value is not going to change, you will not have received a Notice.

If you feel your preliminary 2020 assessment does not accurately reflect the market value of your property as of July 1, 2019:

  1. Schedule a virtual informal review with Tyler Technologies by calling: 800-829-4235 Monday through Friday 9:00AM to 4:00PM or by logging on to www.tylertech.com/schedule to schedule an appointment. Please refer to the document “2020 Preliminary Property Assessment Informal Review Guidelines” that was included in the mailer with your preliminary assessment for additional guidelines.
  2. If you still disagree with your assessed value following an informal review and decision by Tyler Technologies, you can file a grievance with the Board of Assessment Review after the filing of the Tentative Roll on June 30, 2020 and prior to 9pm on July 21, 2020. Grievance forms may be accessed online. This year, hearings before the Board of Assessment Review on Grievance Day (July 21, 2020) will be held via Zoom. 

Town offices remain closed to the public, so grievances may only be submitted via e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or mail to 16 Croton Avenue, Ossining, NY 10562.

Please call the Assessor’s office with any questions: (914) 762-8274.

The Board of Assessment Review will be making determinations on grievances throughout the summer in advance of the September 15, 2020 Final Roll filing deadline
