Assessment Inspection Notice
For assessment purposes all properties within Lacombe County are reviewed on a five-year cycle to ensure that assessment information remains current. An inspection ensures that all characteristics affecting the property are considered in its valuation. This may include both an interior and exterior inspection of the property. Typically, the assessor will be measuring all houses and any outbuildings that do not qualify as farm buildings. The assessor will also take pictures of the buildings at this time.
The Lacombe County assessors will be in the Hamlet of Mirror, and in Ranges 21, 22 & 23 this spring and summer reviewing property assessments.
The assessors will have photo ID identifying them as Lacombe County employees.
