The PVA office uses Field Representatives to collect data. We receive information from several different sources:
1. The Building Inspector provides a list of permits as they are issued. These have all improvements such as additions, garages, multiple dwellings (duplexes, apartments, condos), new businesses, pools and manufactured home placements.
2. On site visual inspections such as required for quadrennial plan and physically checking each parcel for improvements.
3. Property owners
A Field Representative is responsible for going to the site, listing all improvements, measuring structures as necessary, and taking photos of said improvements. Interior specs are gathered from on-site discussion with the owner or occupant. If no one is on site, the field rep will estimate interior specs and leave a card for the owner to fill out and return to the PVA office with information on the structure.
