Appraisers from the County Assessor’s office have begun their yearly visual inspection process. The purpose of the visual inspection is to determine changes that may have occurred to the property since its last inspection. Visual changes could include items that would reduce the fair cash value of the property, such as a barn which was on the property previously but no longer exists due to a fire or tornado. The inspection could also note changes that would increase the fair cash value of the property, such as an addition to the home or the addition of a barn since the last inspection. The process of visually inspecting ¼ of the county each year is required by the Oklahoma constitution (Section 68, OS 2820 and 2829). The law also requires the use of a mapping and parcel identification system, and a computer assisted mass appraisal (CAMA) and mapping program.
Comanche County Assessor, Grant Edwards, states that the entire county must be visually inspected every four years. This year, the northeastern part of the county will be inspected. This includes the towns of Elgin, Fletcher, and Sterling as well as the northeast and northwest parts of Lawton (rural townships T4N, R9W; T4n, R10W; T4n, R11W; T3N, R10W; T3N, R11W; sections 6-24 of T2N, R12W).
