Sec. 12.10. Organization and functions of the board of review.

On the first day of its meeting in each year, the Board of Review shall elect one of its members chairman. The Assessor shall be secretary of the Board and shall attend its meetings with the privilege of participating therein, but without the right to vote upon any decision of the Board. It shall be the duty of the Assessor to keep a permanent record of all proceedings, and to enter therein all resolutions and decisions of the Board. A majority of the members of the Board shall constitute a quorum. The members of said Board shall take the constitutional oath of office which shall be filed with the Clerk. For the purpose of reviewing and correcting assessments, the Board of Review shall have the same powers and perform like duties in all respects as are by the general tax law conferred upon and required of boards of review in townships, in reviewing assessments in townships for township, state, and county taxes. It shall hear the complaints of all persons considering themselves aggrieved by assessments, 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 shall deem just. In all cases, the assessment roll shall be reviewed according to the facts existing on the assessment day and no change of the status of any property after said day shall be considered by the Board in making its decision. Except as otherwise provided by state law, no person other than the Board of Review shall make or authorize any change upon or additions or corrections to the assessment roll.
