Communicable Disease Control Program

Communicable disease is defined as "illness due to a specific infectious agent or its toxic products that arises through transmission of that agent or its products from an infected person, animal, or reservoir to a susceptible host, either directly or indirectly through an intermediate plant or animal host, vector, or the inanimate environment." Communicable disease pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and prions.

Communicable diseases can have a significant impact on the population. The surveillance and control of such diseases is an important part of protecting the public's health. The Communicable Disease program primarily deals with infectious diseases that are reportable by law.

The program also deals with other communicable diseases of public health significance, such as:

  • Influenza
  • Norovirus infection
  • Certain healthcare-associated infections.

For additional information please visit the NC Communicable Disease website.

The program responsibilities include:

  • Monitoring disease outbreaks
  • Monitoring reportable disease rates
  • Providing education to the public and medical community to prevent the spread of disease
  • Implementation of and enforcement of control measures to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Control and prevention of rabies and other diseases of animal origin that can affect humans.

Rabies is a vaccine preventable disease in humans, dogs, cats and ferrets as well as some domestic livestock. All mammals are susceptible to rabies and it is nearly always fatal. Rabies can be prevented in humans with timely and appropriate treatment. In North Carolina the disease most often occurs in wild animals especially skunks, raccoons, bats and foxes. Raccoon rabies is present in the raccoon population in virtually every North Carolina county. For additional information on Rabies please visit:

Appraisal & Valuation

Appraisal & Valuation

When and why do we periodically revalue property?

North Carolina law requires each county to complete a property revaluation at least once every eight years. The primary purpose of a revaluation is to ensure assessments reflect market value at the time of the revaluation and that taxation is fair and equitable for each of our citizens. Union County’s last revaluation was effective as of January 1, 2015. Therefore our current assessment must reflect the market as it existed the first day of 2015, and not as it exists today. If any buildings or other improvements have been added to a parcel after January 1, 2015, they will be by valued the same as similar buildings that existed at that time.

How do I appeal my valuation?

If a taxpayer believes the assessment does not fairly reflect the January 1, 2015 value of their property, or the assessment is inequitable with the assessment of similar properties they may appeal the value.

Union County appeal form is available here Appeal Form. Forms are also available at the Tax Administrator’s Office located at 500 N. Main Street, Suite 236, Monroe NC 28112 or by calling 704-283-3746.

The assessment may be appealed for any of the following scenarios:

  • The property is not appraised at the true market value as of January 1, 2015.
  • The property characteristics used to calculate your assessment is incorrect. This data can be viewed using our Real Property Search.
  • The property is not equally appraised as compared to other similar properties.

What do I do if I made changes to my property?

If changes to your property occur, other than by recorded deed, by plat or by building permits, it is the responsibility of the taxpayer to notify our office during the January listing period using the Improvement Listing Form. These changes include improvements, new construction, demolition, or removal of buildings.
