Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise CPA, CFE announces the Fiscal Office Appraisal Department’s sexiennial listing phase for the state mandated 2014 reappraisal has begun. Members of Scalise’s appraisal staff will use new Tough-book laptop computers to access data and verify records on-site to update property record cards.
Fiscal Officer Scalise said while her appraisal staff continues their work in Green and Springfield, work in the City of Akron will begin in July. Staff members will have Identification Badges; they will wear yellow vests and have official business placards in their private vehicles stating they are from the Summit County Fiscal Office. Staff appraisers will be in the community working between 8 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. No Fiscal Office staff conducts field checks after 4:00 p.m.
As the project keeps moving to the various political subdivisions throughout Summit County, our staff will notify city and township officials that Fiscal Office appraisers will be in their area. The listing phase of the 2014 reappraisal is expected to take about 9 months to complete.
Fiscal Officer Scalise has stated that if a homeowner is not available during the day, staff will leave a door hanger notifying the property owner of our visit.
