ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A petition is officially underway to postpone home reassessments in the City of Rochester.

City Councilmember Willie Lightfoot made the announcement along with Councilmembers Mary Lupien, Stanley Martin, and Kim Smith.

Lightfoot has been vocal about the issue since some assessments in the city went up by as much as 80%. Lightfoot wants the reassessment process to be delayed for at least two years.

To sign his petition, you can reach out to Lightfoot’s office at 585-428-6554 or email willielightfoot@cityofrochester.gov.

The City of Rochester has been holding meetings where people can learn more about their reassessment in the past few weeks. The city released a statement in response to the petition, saying:

“Pausing the reassessments would do more harm than good, and the City will continue with this year’s reassessment process to provide an equitable distribution of taxes for homeowners. In fact, we are looking to cut the tax rate in the 2024-2025 budget year.”
