Clermont County, Ohio – The Clermont County Auditor’s Office has announced that as part of the countywide reassessment project that Tyler Technologies, Inc., of Dayton will be taking detailed, high-resolution street level images. Tyler Technologies’ field staff will photograph properties throughout the county from customized white vans that will be clearly marked with signs indicating that they are conducting an imaging project for the county. This imaging project will begin the week of Oct. 15, 2018, and continue into February 2019.
According to the Auditor, all personnel assigned to this project have been issued photo identification badges that will be visible at all times and local law enforcement have been notified of van descriptions and their locations.
According to a County press release, “All photographs are taken from public right-of-way whenever possible, but it may be necessary to pull into driveways to get an unobstructed image. No images will be taken of homeowners or children when present on residential properties, and license plates and open garages will be blurred from images.”
“The countywide reassessment process is an in-depth review of every property in the county,” said Clermont County Auditor Linda L. Fraley. “Tyler Technologies will provide our county with accurate up-to-date property images and data so that our reviewers have the best information available to them to make an assessment that serves constituents fairly and equitably.”
The Ohio Revised Code requires that all real estate in a county be viewed and reappraised every six years.
Also according to the press release, “The digital imagery project will correct up-to-date property information improving the overall quality of the county’s real estate data, and save taxpayers money by making the property tax administration process more efficient. It will also assist homeowners with ‘before’ photos in case of loss and validate property addresses to identify homes for fire, police and medical emergency response. All attributes of this project ultimately are to ensure fair and equitable property values.”
