VILLAGE OF THOMASTON

Dear Residents,

By now, everyone should have received from Nassau County, the Notice of Tentative Assessed Value for 2020/2021.   For many property owners in the Village of Thomaston, the “Full Market Value” has increased.  I am sure that many residents, myself included, are concerned.

As such, I want to make you aware that I, along with several other Mayors, have met with Nassau County Executive Laura Curran and the Nassau County Assessor, David Moog to address our concerns.  During our meeting, I brought to the attention of the Nassau County Assessor, discrepancies between actual sale prices of homes in the Village of Thomaston and the Nassau County Full Market Value.   Mr. Moog will review this information and determine whether the Nassau County Department of Assessment will review the assessment formula Village wide.  Please note that if a re-valuation does take place, it would only affect the assessed value for the 2021/2022 tax year and not the 2020/2021 tax year.

In the meantime, you have the option to grieve your 2020/2021 assessment with Nassau County.  The deadline to grieve your 2020/21 assessment is April 30, 2019.  Please visit the Nassau County Assessment Review Commission (ARC) website at:

https://www.nassaucountyny.gov/1510/Assessment-Review-Commission  to learn how to file a grievance or you may attend an upcoming workshop.  Workshop dates are posted on the Village website.  We have also made available on the Village website, a list of 2017 and 2018 sales of real property in Thomaston.

Sincerely,

Steven Weinberg
Mayor

Congratulations to Village of Thomaston resident
David Emilio Mollon II on achieving the rank of Eagle Scout!

On Saturday, March 2nd, David Emilio Mollon II, along with two other fellow Scouts
from Boy Scout Troop 10, were recognized for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout,
the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America. 

For his Eagle Scout project, David
converted the former St. Aloysius Food Pantry
 into a multipurpose meeting room and classroom for use by the parish’s community
outreach program and for the Great Neck community as a whole.

Please join us in recognizing David for his achievement and his service to the community.

WATCH OUT FOR TELEPHONE SCAMS!

claiming to be PSEG employees.  These individuals are threatening to cut off service
due to an outstanding account balance and are demanding payment
via a pre-paid debit card. 


THIS IS A SCAM.

If you receive such a call, hang up.

The Nassau County Police Department is aware of this scam and are investigating.
