Constant Bearing, Decreasing Range

One headline today says: Judge says no more delay in county reassessment with this explanation:
Common Pleas Court Judge R. Stanton Wettick Jr. also ordered Wesley Graham, the acting chief assessment officer, to report weekly to him on the number of properties his employees handled each day.
County officials appeared to lack "a sense of urgency" about completing the reassessment effort, Judge Wettick said earlier Thursday.
From just two days ago there was this snippet in the paper as well:
New property tax bills are due to be issued early next year and Mr. Fitzgerald has said if elected he would refuse to mail them, even at risk of going to jail.

Pattern and practice?  You decide. It all must all be Ed's fault. Going to be an interesting spring in Judge Wettick's courtroom.

While it unfairly maligns 'Pittsburgh" a good writeup of why this all really matters direct from the real estate professions themselves: Pittsburgh Exemplifies Pennsylvania’s Property Tax Discord

and like those animals that sense earthquakes before they arrive....  don't you just feel news on the city pension front is inbound?

Pittsburgh residents still get time to appeal, so that's nice. But was it really an option to speed things up by not allowing an informal appeal. If I understand this correctly, and I may not, taking away the informal appeal would have meant Pittsburgh residents had to choose between doing nothing or going to court.
