Leesburg-- Many Lee County property owners say they were shocked by the new assessments of the fair market value of their homes and land. But tax assessors say they have not heard a great public outrage.

Chief Appraiser Lee Stanley says their office has been busy answering questions from property owners, but less than thirty people have requested formal appeals of their assessment. "People of Lee County understand the growth that we have had. Since 2002 we have grown on average three and a half people a day. When you have that strong demands, obviously the values of property go up substantially. Citizens know what's going on."

Stanley says it's typical for ten percent of property owners to question reassessments, but he thinks there will be far fewer from Lee County's ten thousand owners.

Lee County Property owners have until July 3rd to formally appeal their assessment, but Stanley urges anyone with concerns to make an appointment with his office to answer any questions.
