PITTSBURGH – County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and County Council will hold a series of town hall meetings in all 13 County Council districts to assist homeowners with the 2013 court-ordered reassessment. The first meeting is tonight in McKeesport, and meetings will continue throughout the county into April.

“When the Court took control of the reassessment, I vowed to make all the resources of the county available to taxpayers so they could fight their 2013 court-ordered reassessment value,” said Fitzgerald. “Our town hall meetings throughout the county are another step in providing property owners with the tools and information they need. I encourage any property owner who has questions or concerns about the 2013 court-ordered reassessment to join us at these town hall meetings.”

The town hall meetings will include a presentation that explains the reassessment process, how to file and prepare for informal reviews and formal appeals, and other options for reducing assessed values, as well as a question-and-answer period. In addition, county staff will be on hand to assist property owners with filing various forms. Legal and real estate professionals will also be present to provide free one-on-one advice and assistance.

Town hall meetings scheduled to date are:

  • Thursday, March 1, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
    McKeesport Area High School Auditorium
    1960 Eden Park Boulevard, McKeesport
  • Wednesday, March 7, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
    CCAC Boyce Lecture Hall
    595 Beatty Road, Monroeville
  • Thursday, March 8, 7:30-9:30 p.m.
    Bethel Park High School Auditorium
    309 Church Road, Bethel Park

The county will announce additional town hall meeting dates and locations as they are confirmed. No registration is required and the sessions are free and open to all. Property owners from any community are welcome to attend town hall meetings throughout the county.
