County officials may be seen around property in the county as reinspection is carried out, according to a report from Barton County Appraiser Barbara Konrade.
She noted that the staff members, who will be identified as such, may be looking at a variety of properties.
“The Appraiser’s Office is conducting the annual reinspection of real property, including residential, commercial and vacant properties.
“Field appraisers will begin work in Great Bend and Ellinwood. Once these areas are complete, reinspections may be conducted in rural portions of the county as needed,” the appraiser explained.
She said the work is required by state regulations.
“The Appraiser’s Office is mandated by K.S.A. 79-1476 to physically reinspect all real property in the county at least once every six years to verify that data is current and represents the property accurately.
“The Appraiser’s Office physically inspects approximately 17 percent of the real property located in the County each year.
“Building permits and property sales data is used in the effort.”
Konrade added the department workers will be identified. “
“Staff wear county-issued identification badges and travel in Barton County marked vehicles.
“For questions, please call 620-793-1821 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org,” she added.
