CLARK COUNTY AUDITOR EARNS STATE OF OHIO AWARD

October 11th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “CLARK COUNTY AUDITOR EARNS STATE OF OHIO AWARD”

The Clark County Auditor’s office earned a 2017 “Best Practices” award recently at the Annual Ohio OGRIP (Ohio Geographically Referenced Information Program) Conference in Columbus, Ohio.  The award was presented for the Clark County/ City of Springfield GIS Consortium (CCSGISC) that features the Auditor’s GIS (Geographic Information System) Department’s expertise to help in decision making and improvement to Clark County and the City of Springfield.    This data also results in reduced response time of data requests,   better access to information and better data for decision making and planning for various other governmental entities.

“The City is excited about the partnership that has been created with the County Auditor and their GIS team”, says Bryan Heck, Springfield Deputy City Manager.  “We continue to look for ways to be more efficient and effective in the way services are delivered to our community.”

The mission of the CCSGISC is to assist, promote and develop a shared geographic information system resource for local decision makers and the general public.

The Auditor’s GIS staff, led by Deputy Auditor Shayne Gray, enables managers and citizens to make decisions impacting the future of the County in an informed and logical manner.

Some of the benefits of this work enable users to operate as an internal service program, providing clients with data as well as standard and customized maps and reports.

CCSGISC acts as a liaison between County and data partners that are external to the County in order to promote the County’s interests in their data.

Also, this consortium provides Clark County and Springfield City administrators, other County/City departments and planners with graphic and data analysis tools for decision making and presentations. The GIS model includes planimetric, parcel/cadastral, county/city utilities, parks and recreation, health district, emergency management, first responders, waste management data to mention a few of the county data sets provided.

“I am extremely proud of this valuable arrangement between our Auditor’s office and different governmental entities to offer great benefits to the Clark County taxpayer. This is what good government should strive to accomplish,” Auditor John S. Federer said.

AUDITOR ANNOUNCES FIRST PHASE OF REAPPRAISAL PROJECT

August 8th, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “AUDITOR ANNOUNCES FIRST PHASE OF REAPPRAISAL PROJECT”

Auditor John S. Federer wishes to inform the citizens and taxpayers of Clark County that the first phase of the 2019 Real Property Reappraisal project is underway.   The County has contracted with Tyler Technologies, Inc. of Dayton, Ohio to provide detailed, high resolution street level images.  In this first phase, Tyler Technologies’ field staff will photograph properties 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 April 10th.

 

“The goals of the County are to build upon the current records developed from the 2013 reappraisal and continue to ensure that we have fair and accurate real estate values in place for Clark County taxpayers,” explains Auditor Federer.  He further explains, “This phase allows our office to capture any changes that have occurred to properties since the previous reappraisal so that we continue to refine the data on file.”  To that end, if there have been any changes to property that you own, the Auditor’s office should be made aware of that so that the property is reflected accurately.

 

The second phase will include a review of individual parcels for valuation.  This phase will commence after the street level imaging is complete.  The entire process will be finished by November, 2019.

 

“I want to thank the community for their participation and diligence in assisting us with this important process.  As your Auditor, I consider it a privilege to continue to work on behalf of the Clark County taxpayers to maintain fair and accurate property values throughout the County”, says Federer.  As always, if there are any questions, please contact the Auditor’s office at 937-521-1878.

Clark County Auditor Continues to Refine Fair and Accurate Real Estate Taxes

August 26th, 2016 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Clark County Auditor Continues to Refine Fair and Accurate Real Estate Taxes”

This year, 2016, is the Triennial Appraisal Update which is required for Clark County. As Auditor John S. Federer explains, “This is not a total reevaluation whereby the Auditor examines every parcel in each part of the county. Rather, a triennial update is a review of neighborhood values based upon actual sales over the prior three years. This project has been in process since February of this year, and values will be updated for both agricultural and residential properties throughout Clark County.”

The Auditor is announcing an “Open Book” session being conducted from September 12 through October 14. During this time, property owners will be able to obtain information regarding their values by stopping in the Auditor’s Office at 31 N. Limestone Street, Springfield, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or by calling (937) 521-1878.

“My staff and I have worked very hard to ensure that property values are fair and accurate for all taxpayers in Clark County,” said Auditor Federer. Updated values will be reflected in the January 2017 tax bills.
