More AVI outreach sessions scheduled

The Nutter administration on Tuesday announced its next four outreach sessions for residents who want help with the city's transition to the Actual Value Initiative, a new property-tax system that aims to make the tax rolls more accurate and fair. 

Things got a little testy at a session last week in Germantown that was attended by about 400 people. The city plans to have more staffers at the next sessions, which are intended to give people one-on-one help with their AVI needs, not be a town-hall style forum about the policy.

Attendees can get help applying for the homestead exemption (a tax break for people who own the house they live in), filing appeals of the city's assessments of their properties and getting answers to other questions they have about AVI. Bring your Assessment Change Notice, Homestead Exemption form and First Level Review form, which the city began mailing to residents a month ago.

Here are the dates and places of the meetings:

• Wednesday, March 13, 6-9pm – Shiloh Baptist Church, 2040 Christian St.

• Thursday, March 14, 6-9pm – Archbishop Ryan High School, 11201 Academy Road

• Saturday, March 16, 10am-2pm – Chestnut Hill Library, 8711 Germantown Ave.

• Saturday, March 16, 10am-5pm – Francisville Recreation Center, 1737-39 Francis St.
