Board of Review

Board Of Review

The Board of Review serves as a system of checks and balances between the Assessor and the General public. The board receives and examines the assessment roll from the assessor and hears appeals from property owners regarding their assessments and values established by the assessor. Board members serve three-year terms and hear tax assessment appeals in July and December.

The Informational meeting where Board members will receive the roll is the first Tuesday after the first Monday in March, and the open Board of Review meetings are the third Tuesday and Wednesday after the first Monday in March. The Appeals meetings are the third Tuesday after the first Monday in July, and the second Tuesday after the first Monday in December.

Preferred areas of expertise are banking/finance, real estate/development law (no agents or brokers), and property appraisal/assessing. Knowledge in these areas is not a requirement. Members are appointed by City Council and must be residents of the city.
