TROY, N.Y. - The city of Troy is taking three other neighboring municipalities to court over recent property assessments.
This comes after Troy conducted a city-wide reevaluation, in which city officials supposedly found over 60 properties along the boundaries of Brunswick, North Greenbush and Schaghticoke are partially within city limits, and say these homes have not been assessed on the city tax rolls.
The case will be handled by the Rensselaer County Court. If a judge rules in the city's favor, residents affected will be put on Troy's tax roll.
"They would pay a certain proportion of the assessed value to the city," Ian Silverman, of the Troy Corporation Counsel, said. "If it's only a small portion of their land and the house in primarily in Brunswick, but there is half an acre of land, it would be an assessed value assigned to that portion of the land. So they would pay only that portion to the city."
Troy officials say most of the homes affected would be in Brunswick.
The case will be presented to a judge on August 30th.
