METHUEN — The state mandated process of revaluing property will begin in February. The process is expected to be finalized in October 2008.

The Department of Revenue requires that all residential and commercial property be inspected, measured and listed every 10 years.

Both exterior and interior inspections will be conducted by members of the Board of Assessors and representatives from Patriot Properties Inc., an assessment firm located in Lynn.

If residents have questions regarding the revaluation process, they can contact the City Assessor’s office at 978-983-8530.
