BCEO TAX MAP OFFICE TO RELOCATE
Tax Mapping Services Available Online and at Engineer's Office

Butler County Engineer Greg Wilkens announces that the BCEO's Tax Map Office will officially relocate on October 5 from the County Administration Building in downtown Hamilton to the Butler County Engineer's Office on Route 4 next to the fairgrounds.

"This move is designed to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs," Wilkens explained. "As we've made tax mapping services available online the need for our customers to visit the Tax Map Office has been minimized from years past. We've never lost sight of servicing the public and with this move will make access even more convenient."

Acquiring information that traditionally involved a trek to the BCEO's Tax Map Department in downtown Hamilton got a lot easier several years ago when tax map records were made available online courtesy of a new Interactive Web Map developed by the Engineer's Tax Map / GIS and Information Services Departments. Until then, this information was only accessible to the public in the Tax Map Office by using paper map books. Wilkens noted at the time: "We're excited to offer this new service and believe it will be a convenient alternative for many users of our tax mapping services. Our Tax Map and Information Services personnel did an outstanding job of putting this together."

Online tax mapping services make it easier to now consolidate Tax Map operations with the rest of the Engineer's Office. "We will still have personnel on hand to offer the same great services to our citizens who visit the Tax Map Office," said Wilkens. "Our goal has been to combine helpful personnel with utilization of modern technology to better serve the public. Throughout the last four to five years we've made major advances in the use of technology not only in the Tax Map Department but thoughout our entire organization, enabling us to do more with less and within a shorter time frame."

Tax Map's New Contact Info

Starting October 5, the Tax Map Office's official new address and phone number will be the same as the Butler County Engineer's Office:

  • 1921 Fairgrove Avenue, Hamilton, Ohio 45011-1965.
  • Phone: 513-867-5744.

Tax Map Interactive Web Map

For users who don't require a visit to the Tax Map Department's new location, the new Tax Map Interactive Web Map enables access to survey information 24 hours a day seven days a week from any location that has Internet access. The map displays a representation of the parcels, access to the plats of survey with the option to download the plat, view aerial photography, and link to the Auditor's Real Estate data for each parcel.

Interested users can access the interactive map via a link on the Butler County Engineer's Office web site at www.bceo.org. The link is located in two areas:

If users would prefer to access the site directly, the specific web address is http://gis.bceo.org/.
