MANASQUAN - More than 170 property tax appeals have been filed by Manasquan residents whose homes were damaged by Sandy.

The borough says homes have lost $77 million in value as the properties were re-assessed. Officials believe the tax assessors gave fair evaluations of the homes and will contest each appeal.

Approximately 1,500 Manasquan residents received tax reductions. The appeals were filed by homeowners who were not satisfied and wanted additional reductions.

Borough officials are questioning some of those claims because a single attorney is representing the majority of them. That attorney would not comment on the appeals.
