Just scanning the Wettick Watch there on the right. Several filings of note in the assessments case. Per an expert report filed yesterday and just put online, it looks like the proposed remedy for getting updated assessments going in Allegheny County is a combination of using the 2005 assessment numbers and trending them to get something close to where we might be today. Just guessing that this solution is there to obviate any argument that the county does not have the time or money to get any new type of assessment in place anytime soon. The method seems like it would use the 2005 assessments in place and other techniques that would not need any effort on the part of the county.
