By a 15-2 vote.

Stories here and here.

Here's the referendum question that will be on the May primary ballot:

Shall the Board of Revision of Taxes be abolished, and its powers, functions, and duties be reassigned to a new Office of Property Assessment (with respect to the making of assessments) and to a Board of Property Assessment Appeals (with respect to appeals from such assessments), with the members of the board appointed from nominations made by a Board of Property Assessment Appeals nominating panel?

Wonder what kind of PR push will be made to make sure voters are aware of this, and who will lead the charge?
