PITTSBURGH – County Executive Rich Fitzgerald today announced that the Property Assessments Call Center at 412-350-4600 will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 17, in addition to its normal hours of 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. today and tomorrow, to accommodate property owners in scheduling informal reviews.

The County’s online informal review scheduling system will also remain operational through midnight on Sunday, March 18. Online informal review scheduling is available by going to www.alleghenycounty.us, clicking on the “Property Assessment Information” link, and then selecting the “Schedule an Informal Review” box. Property owners may also search for their property on the 2013 Court-Ordered Reassessment Values website and click on the “File an informal review” link at the bottom of the page.

“With the March 16 deadline to schedule an informal review fast approaching, we have seen a tremendous increase in call volume,” said Fitzgerald. “In order to make sure property owners who want an informal review get one, we are extending our call center hours and online scheduling.”

The County Executive also announced that residents can view one of the reassessment town hall meetings on Pittsburgh’s Concert-oh website at www.concert-oh.com. Concert-oh users may experience web-based virtual meetings with customizable features. The site is easy to use, free and accessible after a quick registration. Once logged in, property owners should search for “Reassessments” on the “All Meetings” tab to locate the video.

“We are proud to partner with Pittsburgh-based Concert-oh to help property owners who can’t make it to a town hall meeting to see our presentation,” added Fitzgerald.

In the coming weeks, the County Executive will also host a live, virtual town hall meeting on the Concert-oh website where property owners will be able to ask questions about the 2013 court-ordered reassessment.
