Every Home and Business Being Reassessed for Damages, Office Open
After Hurricane Ida, the St. Charles Parish Assessor’s Office began a complete reassessment of properties within the parish.
To assist with this process, aerial photos of the parish were captured between Sept. 3 and Sept. 5, and street view image capture was completed on Sept. 14, Sept. 24, and Sept. 25.
This process is similar to the regular reassessment process done at four-year intervals as per state law. There is no need for residents to contact the assessor’s office at this time while reassessments are still being determined via technology and boots on the ground. If more information is needed from a homeowner or business owner during this process, a representative from the assessor’s office will reach out.
Once reassessments are completed, they will be posted online and available in the assessor’s office for residents to review. The majority of residents are likely to agree to the adjustments made. Those who feel the assessor’s office did not quite capture all damages will then be encouraged to contact the office for further review.
The goal is to remove the burden from residents at this time when most are busy dealing heavily with insurance companies and/or FEMA.
