CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

The county’s review of Mecklenburg property revaluations will take another step Monday night.

The company hired to look into the controversy will meet with property owners for the first time.

The company wants to know what problems homeowners are facing.

It will use that information as it reviews this revaluation process and comes up with recommendations for homeowners and the county.

The board hired the independent appraisal company after dozens of homeowners expressed concern.

They felt the assessed value of their homes was a lot more than the market value.  Some homeowners feel like they have not received answers about why.

County Commissioners hope this independent review answers some of those questions and fixes the process for the future.

“We need to figure out how we screwed up.  It’s not going to do any good to call for a second revaluation when we don’t know what the flaws were in the first one,” said Mecklenburg County Commissioner Bill James.

The meeting starts Monday at 7 p.m.

There will be a total of six meetings.  The final review is expected to be done in about four months.
