State worried about reappraisal

Many Roane County residents considered the 2010 property reappraisal a disaster.

Now the state is raising concerns about the next one, coming in 2015.

The state is worried that the Roane County Property Assessor’s office may not be capable of completing the 2015 reappraisal on time.

Don Osborne, director of assessments and field operations for the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury’s Division of Property Assessments, expressed his doubts in a Nov. 10 letter to Property Assessor David Morgan.
