Public Records

We, in the Assessor's Office, welcome all requests for records.

A large amount of our records are already available on-line on our parcel search.  Including detailed assessor data, value history, tax descriptions, building data and sales history.  We also have downloadable data available in ASCII, tab-delimited format.  This data is updated every Wednesday.  We do not provide customized reports.
