Allegheny County Controller Corey O’Connor will continue a series of information sessions on property owners’ rights in the County’s property assessment and appeals process in Pittsburgh’s East End on Thursday and in the North Hills Monday. O’Connor is partnering with Pittsburgh Community Reinvestment Group (PCRG), a coalition of local community-based organizations focused on housing fairness and equity, and the Realtors Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh on the sessions.
“Legal proceedings and media attention around the property assessment process has led to questions from many residents about what their rights are and how to navigate the appeals process when necessary. I am pleased to be able to use the resources of my office to provide information to residents and to make sure our County government is working effectively for them,” O’Connor said.
The remaining schedule to date is as follows (sessions will be held 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. unless noted):
- Thursday, Sept. 29 – Kingsley Assoc., 6435 Frankstown Ave. 15206
- Monday, Oct. 3 – Northland Library, 300 Cumberland Road 15237 (5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.)
