The embattled Board of Revision of Taxes today held a public hearing on an agreement with the administration to temporarily hand assessment authority to the city finance department – after the city solicitor deemed that the original closed-door deal violated the state Sunshine Act.
No vote was taken at today’s hearing, which included a presentation from Finance Director Rob Dubow in favor of the agreement and comments from the public.
The original arrangement – known as a Memorandum of Understanding -- was approved by all six BRT members at an Oct. 7 meeting. But the deal came under fire for lack of transparency.
