The Lake County Board of Review is seeking qualified professionals with a background in real estate to serve as hearing officers.

Hearing officers act as unbiased intermediaries and hear testimony on written appeals of any real estate parcel that is claimed to be over or under assessed. They then determine if the assessment is just or if it needs to be corrected.


Applicants must pass a two-hour qualifying exam, which will be administered May 6, at the Lake County Building, 18 N. County St., Waukegan. Hearing officers will be paid $285 per day.
