GROSSE POINTE CITY — A new person will be handling property tax assessments for the City this year.
At a June 18 City Council meeting, the council unanimously approved a one-year contract appointing Wendy S. Moya as the new assessor. The City’s previous assessor, Judith Provencher, retired at the end of June. Assistant City Manager/City Clerk Julie Arthurs said Provencher worked for the City for six years.
Moya is “an experienced assessor” with the right knowledge and skills for the job, Finance Director/Treasurer Kimberly Kleinow said. As required by the City, Moya is a state-certified Level III assessor, as well as a certified personal property examiner, Kleinow said. After advertising the position through the Michigan Municipal League and on the City’s website, she said they determined that of the applicants, Moya was the best fit for the community.
Moya’s contract — which was reviewed by the city attorney — is the same as Provencher’s, Kleinow said. The contract is for $27,037 for the year, which is the same as the budgeted amount for 2012-13, she said. It’s based on a yearly per-parcel fee of $9.75, Kleinow said. The market range per property is $9-$12 and varies based on the community’s complexity, she said. The City has 2,773 personal, residential and commercial properties, Kleinow said.
Moya’s contract runs July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013, which is concurrent with the fiscal year calendar. It calls for her to maintain office hours two days per week, prepare the assessment roll for property tax collection, determine true market value and perform appraisals, among other duties.
Mayor Dale Scrace welcomed Moya to her new post.
