WEST MILFORD - West Milford residents are upset over their property taxes after the Passaic County Township recently hired an outside company to revalue all 11,000 properties in the area.

Homes along the area's lakes saw the biggest increases in appraised value, which means their taxes are going up, some by several thousand dollars.

Hundreds appealed the appraisals with the county tax board and are awaiting a final decision.

Other homeowners farther away from the lakes actually saw their property values and taxes go down.
