The city of Wooster is putting together a three-person panel to hear from residents who have complaints about how much money they are being assessed for the city’s $3.8 million renovation project on Melrose Drive. The assessment equalization board will be made up of three impartial city residents and meet next week in City Hall’s council chambers. The board will hear from three residents who are objecting to how much they’ve been assessed, included one person assessed nearly $35,000 for his 7-acre property. While the amount of each assessment cannot be changed, the board, if it so chooses, can reduce each one at a discounted rate. If the objecting residents are granted a discount, the city would then take money out of its own budget to pay for the remaining amount still owed.
