The Richland County Auditor is undertaking a property imaging project for the first time in 10 years.

Auditor Pat Dropsey and Curtis Tyler of Tyler Technologies in Dayton say each of the 53,000 residential, business, and agricultural stuctures in the county will be photographed from ground level, as part of the property value assessment that's done every six years.

Two white vans, with signs on the doors with the auditor's office phone number, will canvass the county to take the pictures.  

Tyler says pictures will not be taken when people are in the yard, and children especially will not be photographed.

If a house has people outside, the van will return later. 

Dropsey says the images are used in several ways by the Regional Planning Commission and emergency responders, and will be available on the county auditor's website.

The project starts Tuesday and will take three months to complete.

The $140,450 cost is budgeted in the county auditor's real estate assessment fund.

If you have any questions, call Dropsey's office at 419-774-5501.
