Franklin County To Begin Offering Mediation For Contested Property Valuation Reappraisals

The new triennial property values are due out in July and Franklin County appears to be the first Ohio county to provide a mediation process to its property owners.  New property values are due to be sent to homeowners in July and disputes of these values will begin being heard in the fall.

Mediation would include a neutral third party who would try to achieve some agreed upon valuation between the property owner and either the school district or appraisal staff.  Final approval woulds still be required by the county, but the hope is that a consensus between the two parties can be reached.  Franklin County Auditor, Clarence Mingo, hopes that the mediation program is a success.  If the pilot program is found to be useful, Mingo hopes to use it the whole year for Board of Revision cases involving contested property valuations.
