The Placer County Assessment Appeals Board has a vacancy for a member to represent the 1st Board of Supervisors District.

The five-member Assessment Appeals Board hears cases where property owners appeal property appraisals made by the county Assessor’s Office. In such cases, the board determines property values after taking evidence from the applicants and representatives from the Assessor’s Office.

Members who are property appraisers must be accredited by a nationally recognized professional organization, certified by the California Office of Real Estate Appraisers or certified by the California State Board of Equalization.

Applications currently are being accepted from 1st District residents interested in filling the vacancy. No deadline has been set for submitting applications, but the Board of Supervisors hopes to fill the vacancy soon.

First District Supervisor Bill Santucci will review the applications, recommend someone for the vacant position and ask the full Board of Supervisors to confirm his recommendation.

The appeals board meets on an as-needed basis. Members generally serve three-year terms.
