Kenneth Guille announced Monday that he will seek election to the office of Laramie County Assessor.

Guille has worked in the office since 1998 and was appointed to the position of Assessor in July of 2013. The Assessor is responsible for appraising residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural land and structures on an annual basis for property tax purposes. Personal property such as manufactured homes and business furniture, fixtures and equipment are also appraised. Guille says this year the office sent out over 48,000 assessment schedules to property owners.

Guille says technology and strong office procedures have enabled his staff to keep pace with the increasing workload. He adds that a conversion to new software for the Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal system is planned for November of this year for the 2015 assessment cycle.

Guille, a Cheyenne native, is a professional property tax appraiser with over 700 hours of assessment and appraisal coursework. He is certified by the State of Wyoming as a Property Tax Appraiser and is a member of the International Association of Assessing Officers.
