BUTLER COUNTY: Auditor Announces Large Scale Imaging Project

HAMILTON, Ohio – A countywide property-imaging project will be underway in Butler County beginning March 26, 2012.

Roger Reynolds, Butler County Auditor, has contracted Tyler Technologies, Inc. of Dayton, Ohio to provide detailed, high-resolution street level images for the county’s 2014 general reassessment. Tyler Technologies field staff will photograph properties from customized white vans that will be clearly marked with signs indicating they are conducting an imaging and address verification project for the county.

The imaging crews are expected to be in the area for approximately 14-16 weeks. During that time they will be in constant communication with the Auditor’s Office. Information concerning their routes will be provided to 911 dispatch centers.

The digital photographs will improve the quality of visual data used by Butler County appraisers during and after the reassessment, as well as assist in the verification and correction of addressing discrepancies. The photos will be helpful for emergency management recovery reports that are necessary for state and federal assistance. With recent and accurate images, the auditor’s office will be able to further assist homeowners and business owners by providing “before” pictures if ever they need to file a property loss claim, in addition to supporting up-to-date and accurate property valuations.

For further information, please contact the Auditor’s Office at 513-887-3154.
