Bibb wrapping up revaluation appeals

Bibb County Chief Appraiser Andrea Crutchfield said Wednesday the final rounds of property valuation appeals should wrap up in the next few weeks.

The Board of Equalization, which considers the appeals, expects to finish its work by the middle of April, a bit later than the originally expected late March. Crutchfield said the appeals are 90 percent complete now, leaving just 1.5 percent of the county’s value in dispute.

The Board of Assessors on Wednesday signed off on paperwork that will help clear the way for the tax digest to go to the state for approval, which needs to happen before final 2009 property-tax bills can be mailed.
