Duties and Functions of the Board of Review
As stated in the Charter of the City of Litchfield, Michigan,
Duties and Functions of the Board of Review, Section 10.7
For the purpose of revising and correcting assessments, the Board of Review shall have the same powers and perform like duties in all respects as are conferred by law upon and required of boards of review in townships, except as otherwise provided in this Charter. It shall hear the complaints of all persons considering themselves aggrieved by assesments and, if it shall appear that any person or property has been wrongfully assessed or omitted from the roll, the Board shall correct the roll in such manner as it deems just. In all cases the roll shall be reviewed according to the facts existing on the tax day and no change in the status of any property after that day shall be considered by the Board in making its decisions. Except as otherwise provided by law, no person, other than the Board of Review, shall make or authorize any change upon, or addition or corrections to, the assessment roll. It shall be the duty of the Assessor to keep a permanent record of all proceedings of the Board and to enter therein all resolutions and decisions of the Board.
