Residents need to confirm the information on the survey as well as updating information if the property inventory has changed. The Town hired GAR Associates to oversee the assessment and they have produced an informational video to help residents understand the project. You can view the video on the Town of Mamaroneck website, www.townofmamaroneck.org.
