Town of Monroe | Assessor’s Office Revaluation for October 1, 2014
The Town of Monroe has contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc. to assist the assessor with the state-mandated revaluation for October 1, 2014. Unlike the previous revaluation in 2009, inspections will be limited to properties that have sold since January, 2012, building permits issued after October 1, 2013 and select properties for quality control.  The purpose of a revaluation, which is done in each Connecticut town and city every five years, is to maintain equity so that each taxpayer pays only his fair share of the tax burden.  The market is continually changing and every property is not impacted equally. Fair market value is affected by a number of factors including property type (residential, commercial, industrial), location, individual property desirability and market supply and demand.  The goal is to estimate the current fair market value of every property as of the assessment date, which is October 1, 2014. The assessment reflects 70% of this fair market value.  Once the assessments have been determined, a notice will be mailed to property owners indicating the previous assessment, which was based on a fair market value from 2009, and the new assessment, updated to reflect changes that have occurred in the real estate market in the past five years.  New assessments will be reflected in the July, 2015 tax bills.  Key dates and a brief description of the various phases of the revaluation are available on the Town website: http://www.monroect.org/reval.aspx. If you have any questions, please contact Tyler or the Monroe Assessor’s Office at the numbers below.

Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Screenings Offered at Trumbull Monroe Health District

“Know Your Numbers”

Start the New Year off right and get to “know your numbers”.  In an effort to promote public health, the Trumbull Monroe Health District (TMHD) is offering free blood pressure screenings this February to all those interested.  Individual counseling and educational materials will be available.  No appointment is needed.  Screenings will take place on:
• Tuesday, February 11th, from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., at the Monroe Senior Center, 235 Cutler’s Farm Road, Monroe.  Open to anyone 55 years of age or older.
• Friday, February 14th, from 8:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., at the Trumbull Monroe Health District, 2 Corporate Drive, Suite 116, Trumbull.  Open to the general public.

High blood pressure increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, both leading causes of death in the United States.  According to the American Heart Association, about 1 in 3 American adults have high blood pressure.  The cause of 90-95% of the cases of high blood pressure is unknown, however, high blood pressure is easily detected and usually controllable. Because the consequences associated with high blood pressure are so serious, early detection, treatment, and control are important.
Many people do not know that they have high blood pressure.  Often there are no warning signs or symptoms.  There are several things that you can do to keep your blood pressure in a healthy range:
• Get your blood pressure checked regularly
• Eat a healthy diet
• Maintain a healthy weight
• Be physically active
• Limit alcohol use
• Don’t smoke
• Prevent or treat diabetes
TMHD will also be holding two low cost cholesterol screenings during the month.  Low cost cholesterol screenings will be offered at the Trumbull Monroe Health District.  Fasting is required.  The cost for the screening is $25.00, cash and check are accepted.  Appointments are required.  Screenings are scheduled for:
• Thursday, February 20, from 8:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
• Friday, February 21, from 8:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
This lipid profile screening includes the total, LDL and HDL cholesterol levels, the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL, blood sugar, triglyceride levels and a blood pressure reading.  A ten year risk analysis for developing coronary heart disease will be given.  You will receive results within 20 minutes and be provided with one-on-one counseling from the public health nurse.
TMHD and Get Healthy CT are partners in the “Know Your Numbers” campaign.  This campaign raises awareness of heart disease and diabetes among residents of Trumbull and Monroe and encourages the better management of disease. Other partners include local health departments, social service agencies, Bridgeport Hospital and St. Vincent’s Hospital.
For more information or to schedule an appointment contact TMHD at 203-452-5195.  For public health information visit www.tmhd.org
The mission of the Trumbull Monroe Health District is to protect the health of residents, and to prevent disease.  For more information on the Trumbull Monroe Health District call 203-452-5195, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. or visit our website at www.tmhd.org.
