CITY CHIEF ASSESSMENT officer Richie McKeithen, who oversaw the Actual Value Initiative, is leaving the administration, Mayor Nutter announced today.
McKeithen said that he was proud of AVI, in which the city reassessed all 579,000 properties in Philadelphia, and that he is leaving the city to be closer to his family.
After he steps down in June, McKeithen will become chief assessor for Petersburg, Va. He has family in Richmond.
He will be replaced by his No. 2, deputy chief assessment officer Michael Piper.
