Property Assessment Board schedules Saturday dates for postponed hearings
July 24, 2012
At its last meeting, the Allegheny County Board of Property Assessments Appeals and Review voted that hearings that have been postponed by any party will be rescheduled for Saturday dates beginning at the end of July/beginning of August.
All hearings will be held on the third floor of the County Office Building, 542 Forbes Avenue, downtown Pittsburgh. During that meeting, the board also reinforced and emphasized its rule permitting only one postponement per party.
Any request for postponement must be submitted in writing at least seven days prior to the scheduled hearing date. Board Rules prohibit second postponement requests by any party.
Emergency requests must also be made in writing and must be faxed, emailed or hand-delivered to the board's office along with notice to all parties and a request for their consent. A hearing will not be postponed unless the board receives a written request and assurance the other parties have received notice of the request for an emergency postponement.
