Washington County Commissioners will ask the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to settle their dispute with two school districts over countywide real estate reassessments, their attorney J. Lynn DeHaven said.

A state appeals court this month rejected an appeal from the commissioners of Common Pleas President Judge Debbie O'Dell Seneca's 2011 ruling that the commissioners voluntarily entered into a court-approved 2008 agreement to reassess properties. She rejected a request to put that order on hold.

Washington County last reassessed its properties in 1981. McGuffey and Washington school districts asked for the reassessment four years ago.
