Roane County Property Assessor Teresa Kirkham wants to hear from people impacted by the severe weather that moved through the area on April 27.

She is requesting that property owners with any loss or structural damage to buildings on their property from the storms contact her office at 376-4362.

The information is necessary to ensure the 2011 appraisal information is correct.

Kirkham said she was prompted to make the request after hearing reports about property damage while out in the public.

She said it’s important that anyone with damage contact her office immediately.

“We have an assessment roll coming out in May, and we need to get these changes made before the roll comes out,” she said.
