Property Owners May Sue
Meeting set for Monday night to see if others in county want to join in legal action over reassessment.

Some Harveys Lake and Back Mountain property owners will definitely pursue legal action over Luzerne County’s reassessment, but they have scheduled a meeting for Monday night to see if residents in other parts of the county want to join them in a suit, property owner Michelle Boice said Friday.
“We think we have enough evidence for a case of our own, but we want to see how much interest there is for a countywide effort,” Boice said.
The meeting, sponsored by the newly formed Residents of Luzerne County United organization, is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday in the Wilkes-Barre Township fire hall. The location was chosen because organizers wanted to make it more central for all parts of the county, Boice said.
Turning to litigation was a last resort because both sides will incur legal fees, Boice said.
