Lancaster County homeowners can now request a sit-down meeting with the person who valued their property.
The change comes from a new state law which impacts three counties including Lancaster. Though it doesn't go into effect until 2014, County Assessor Norm Agena says by allowing folks these preliminary hearings this year, he'll be able to figure out what works and what doesn't in advance.
The Lancaster County Assessor's office posted 2013 property values on Monday. Property owners who have a problem with the value set, have until January 31st to schedule an appointment for February.
The hearings are expected to last about fifteen minutes each and will be held at the Lancaster County Assessor's office at 555 S.10th Street, owners can also request a meeting by phone.
