Tax Assessment opened to the public in its new office space June 1.
Uniontown, PA - The Fayette County Tax Assessment Office has completed its relocation to the former Gallatin Bank Building in Uniontown and will begin receiving the public June 1.
The Tax Assessment Office aims to ensure uniformity and fairness in setting Fayette County property values. According to their mission statement, assessors strive to maintain professional and courteous manners when working directly with local authorities, tax collectors and property owners.
After many years of operation on the fourth floor of the Fayette County Courthouse, Director of Assessments Rebecca Cieszynski said the change of scenery is a welcome one.
“The move to the new building is an incredible opportunity for the assessment department,” Cieszynski said. “The office is new, clean, bright, modern and welcoming. It’s truly a place you want to come to.”
Tax Assessment is now located in Suite 212 at 2 West Main Street, Uniontown, PA 15401. Assessment is the latest county office to relocate to the former bank building, following the election bureau, tax claim and planning and zoning offices.
Cieszynski said renovations and elevator inspections were recently completed, allowing citizens to now access the building’s second floor and “new, spacious” offices more easily.
“I really look forward to welcoming the public for many reasons. We now have a large conference room for our appeal hearings, equipped with two large, flat-screen monitors, a huge conference table and plenty of seating,” she said. “We also have a new area set up for the public at the mapping counter and two desks where people can browse the computers and public records at their leisure.”
An archive room, which will allow for public viewing of tax records dating back to 1888, is still under construction.
