BOARD OF REVIEW
The Board of Review consists of citizens appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Common Council. The Board of Review is responsible for correcting any assessment errors. It conducts its hearings in a manner similar to a court.
The Board commences meetings in May. Subsequent hearing dates are dependent on the number of appeals brought to the Board.
