Successful Value Notice Mailing Demonstrates the Consortium Advantage

Date Posted:

In March of 2010, the LOGIS assessing cities (Brooklyn Center, Eden Prairie, Edina, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, and St. Louis Park) successfully sent over 108,000 value notices to property owners.

Value notice mailings are a great example of the LOGIS consortium advantage.  In this case, shared printing and production costs resulted in significant savings for all of the cities involved.  With the help of a local direct mail service we were able to do the entire mailing at greatly reduced cost, including postage as low as 33 ½ cents per piece, based on bulk mailing rates.  In the past we have found that the savings in postage alone pays for the cost of using the direct mail service.

This year one city was able to take advantage of the USPS Full Service Intelligent Mail Option (a new barcode system).  Next year more cities will qualify for this service, resulting in even better savings.
