He filters through all permits to determine which will generate value for taxation purposes, organizes them and disperses them to his appraisal staff. He maintains the status of all active permits utilizing the offices internal Proval program. As the Senior Appraiser Mr. Vigil reviews all of the completed work that has been entered into Proval to verify accuracy and provide updates of status and completion to his manager.
Mr. Vigil has recently taken on the assignment of training new appraisal staff. He, alongside his appraisal team, has created a training check-list to thoroughly introduce the Appraiser Trainees to the appraisal processes that have been established in Assessor Martinez’s office. This list includes a variation of appraisal tasks from entering data into the system, conducting field work and taking care of the County units.
Mr. Vigil provides a great example of an employee who demonstrates the office’s core values. He shows Fairness and Equality to taxpayers by verifying the work provided on building permits. He ensures that all work is completed uniformly utilizing office procedures and that a fair value is placed on all construction. By verifying the appraiser’s work Mr. Vigil also provides quality work which falls into the core values of Quality and Excellence. In training the new staff, he shows teamwork and is assisting in building the sustainability of the office; and by going above and beyond he takes pride in his work and passes on his knowledge and guides his staff towards following the core value of Honesty and Integrity.
