The Freedom Township Board of Review meets at specified times to discuss challenges and review of the Assessment Roll. Members must be residents and property owners in the township. They have authority to adjust assessed valuations on property based on landowner disagreement with the assessment, and can adjust taxable valuations in some cases. Members serve a three-year appointed term. There is no charge for appeal to the Board of Review. Hearings for individual claims are held in March, as noted on assessment change notices received at the beginning of March. Mutual mistakes in assessment are corrected in July and December meetings, if needed.
The current membership of the Board of Review is:
- Jerry Huehl
- Jason Haynes
- Dale Mieras
- Dale Ganzhorn, alternate
- Larry Lindemann, Secretary of Board of Review
