Reappraisal process begins in Norton

DOWNTOWN AKRON — Residents of Norton began to see county appraisers at work this week.

According to Summit County Fiscal Officer Kristen Scalise’s office, appraisers will physically evaluate residential parcels and can be identified by their identification badges and yellow work vests. Their vehicles will be marked with a placard stating they are from the Summit County Fiscal Office. Appraisers work between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., and the Fiscal Office does not conduct evaluations after 4 p.m.

The work is part of the review phase of the state-mandated 2014 Reappraisal process, according to Scalise.

For more information, call 330-643-2710.
