If property values in Any Village go down 10%, then each property is assessed at $90,000. The amount they pay in taxes, however, remains the same because the tax levy amount has not changed, even though the assessment has declined. Each resident still owns 50% of the total property in Any Village and must pay 50% of the $2,000 tax levy, which is $1,000. Even if the properties’ assessments increase to $110,000 each, the taxes stay exactly the same. They each still own 50% of the total property and Any Village still needs to collect $2,000, therefore they will continue to see a $1,000 property tax bill.
An increase or decrease in the assessment of an individual property is not an indicator of whether the tax bill for a property will go up, down, or remain the same.
To find a vendor in FAMIS:
Enter the vendor’s federal ID number or individual social security number on screen FAML5460. If the vendor is not found, enter the vendor’s name on screen FAML5450. You may have to try different variations of the name. Once the vendor’s federal ID number or social security number is found, enter it on screen FAML5460 to review the vendor’s payment information. Also review the vendor’s payment addresses by using the F6 key and review for multiple addresses using the F5 key on screen FAML5461. If you intend to process a requisition through the ADPICS system, you must make sure the vendor is also listed in ADPICS.
To find a vendor in ADPICS:
Enter the vendor’s federal ID number on screen PCHL5200. If the vendor is not found, enter the name on screen PCHL1200.
If the number and all variations of the name are not found, it is safe to presume the vendor is not in the County’s master file.
To be added into FAMIS, the vendor should register on the Nassau County Vendor Portal by accessing the following link New Vendor Registration (nassaucountyny.gov). To be added into ADPICS, please contact the Purchasing Department.

The Office of Community Development offers gap financing for both new construction of single family and multifamily housing for low and moderate income persons and for the preservation and rehabilitation of existing affordable multifamily and single family rental housing in Nassau County .
All applicants for HOME Program funding from the Nassau County Office of Community Development for developments with five or more units must develop and comply with an Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan (AFHMP). The purpose of the Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan (AFHMP) is to help applicants offer equal housing opportunities regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or disability. OCD further prohibits the use of geographical preferences in the marketing of units included in a development receiving HOME funding. The AFHMP helps owners/agents (respondents) effectively market the availability of housing opportunities to individuals of both minority and non-minority groups that are least likely to apply for occupancy. Affirmative fair housing marketing and planning should be part of all new construction, substantial rehabilitation, and existing project marketing and advertising activities.
The AFHMP must be utilized for initial sale or lease-up of all HOME-assisted units and to fill vacancies that occur during the applicable HOME Affordability Period.
Applicants may develop their own Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan, subject to the approval of NC OCD. HUD also makes available AFHMP templates that may be used to create an individual AFHMP. The templates are different for Single-Family and Multi-Family developments. Nassau County HOME applicants are encouraged to utilize these templates in crafting their own plans.

An example would be a County contracting or oversight official who has an undisclosed financial interest in a contractor, vendor or consultant, resulting in an improper contract award or inflated costs to the County.

Waste can include extravagant, careless, or needless expenditure of County funds. An example would be causing County funds to be used to purchase replacement parts for old equipment that is being scrapped.

At the conclusion of the hearing, the hearing officer weighs the evidence and credibility of the arguments and has several options for a decision. The hearing officer will decide whether a legal violation has occurred, whether to assess a fine and the amount, memorialize any settlement agreements that may have been concluded during the hearing, order restitution by a respondent to redress a grievance, or order the suspension of a license or registration.
The hearing officer sets the ground rules for the hearing and may exercise discretion in what types of evidence will be allowed, who may be present to assist a respondent (but an attorney is always permitted if desired), and the order and conduct of the presentation of the issues and evidence by both sides. A hearing officer may create a settlement where appropriate during the hearing or issue a decision constituting an order of the Office of Consumer Affairs at the conclusion of the hearing.

The only general limitation for participating in any form of service is age. You must be at least 18 years old to volunteer as an adult. Otherwise, anyone who can meet the physical and mental demands of training and achieve certification may serve as a firefighter or emergency medical technician. Note that additional, specific considerations, such as area of residence, will also apply. To learn more about volunteering, click on Requirements or Helpful Links .
Yes, indeed. Over the years many women have served within the County’s volunteer fire departments and emergency medical service agencies. They have a lot of company, too; it’s estimated that there are between 35,000 and 40,000 female volunteer firefighters in departments across the United States. All firefighting jobs can be performed by a properly trained woman.
Click here to fill out the volunteer profile form, and we’ll help put you in touch with your local fire or EMS Agency. Because Districts often overlap town lines, don’t assume that the nearest station is necessarily your local agency – check with us.
Your decision to become a fire or emergency medical volunteer is something of which your family can be proud. It is more than just a personal commitment, however. The time involved for both training and service will certainly affect the other members of your family. Emergencies seldom occur at convenient times, so your family will need to understand and accept that plans may need to change at a moment’s notice. In truth, no one can expect to be a successful volunteer without the full support of those whom they care for, and who care for them.
Yes, depending on your family situation, you should definitely include your spouse, children, siblings, and even parents in your considerations, and make sure that they understand the ways in which your decision is likely to affect your family life. To help you, the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has produced a booklet: What to Expect: A Guide for Family Members of Volunteer Firefighters.
