To the Editor:

The public is invited to join Lee County’s Clerk and Comptroller Kevin Karnes, Property Appraiser Matt Caldwell and Tax Collector Noelle Branning for a comprehensive presentation on the property assessment, collection and dispute process.

 The class will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 2 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Estero Recreation Center, located at 9200 Corkscrew Palms Boulevard in Estero.

 During the presentation, all three officials will thoroughly explain their portion of the process to attendees. The Property Appraiser will discuss how property value is assessed; the Tax Collector will review the tax collection process for the property; and the Lee Clerk will explain how you can contest your property assessments as well as help safeguard your property with a free fraud alert service.

 Immediately following the presentations, there will be a question and answer session. This is an opportunity for attendees to ask the presenters any questions they may have about the property assessment, collection and dispute process.

 The class is free, but registration is required. To register for the event or view upcoming seminars, please visit
