CUYAHOGA COUNTY -- Cuyahoga County's Boards of Revision are starting a "Night Court" to help taxpayers appealing their property taxes.
That's how the new Cuyahoga County government is making another change to be "user friendly."
Property owners who want to contest their evaluations will be able to make their case in a new "night court" offered by the county's boards of revision.
The Boards of Revision had a huge case backlog and were riddled with irregularities before the new county government was elected last year.
County Executive Ed FitzGerald established the "night court" as a convenience to working citizens.
"For people working hard to make ends meet, it can be a real sacrifice to take time off work to come downtown and be heard. Hopefully...we can make this process at little easier for people," he said.
The pilot program starts tonight (Juluy 12). Two boards of revision will hear 14 complaints starting at 5:30 p.m.
The Boards of Revision will hear challenges of property values on four Tuesdays and four Thursdays over the next month.
