Stuff happens! Assessment officials are constantly faced with appraising property after a disaster – whether natural or man-made. Disasters discussed in this workshop will help you make some preparations in advance and possibly provide a blueprint in case your jurisdiction becomes affected by a disaster. Disasters are traumatic events but for the assessor’s not all traumatic events are disasters. In this workshop we will also provide some examples of extreme growth or economic changes and some steps that an assessor/appraiser can use to help make these extreme changes manageable. These traumatic events are a separate issue from disasters.
