Property assessor to visit Mason properties over the next few weeks

Mason’s assessor, Todd Haywood, began visiting properties in Tax Maps A and B. He started on Sept. 25, 2017, and will continue over the next few weeks as part of the cyclical property review process. Todd drives a 2014 Black Ford Escape with “Granite State Municipal Services” magnets on the doors, and he can provide a letter from the BOS office on request. The Mason PD is also aware that he is working in Mason, and can verify this information.
