Lots of Fredericksburg residents got a rude awakening Saturday when they went to their mailboxes and discovered what new value had been put on their property. Some downtowners have reported seeing their assessment jump more than 300 percent in four years. In College Heights, there have been reports of values nearly doubling. We’ll be reporting on the reassessment in the coming days, and if you’d like to question, bemoan or otherwise let off some steam about your assessment notice, drop me a note at, or call me at 540/374-5413.
