The motion carried. <br /> <br />HEARING <br /> <br />Karen Hovde <br />23 Oak Shore Court <br />Port Townsend, W A 98368 <br /> <br />BOE: 96-53-R <br /> <br />PN: 965000181 <br /> <br />Karen Hovde was present. Robert Kingsley was present on behalf of the Assessor's office. In the absence of <br />Chairman Marlow, Vice-Chairman Broders explained the hearing process and swore them in. The appellant is <br />appealing only the improvement value of the property. The property is located in the private community of Kala <br />Point, in Port Townsend. Ms. Hovde stated that her house has one bedroom and is very small for Kala Point's <br />stature. She feels that her property does not merit this level of taxation and is requesting the Board reduce the <br />current assessment from $151,310 ($28,750 forthe land and $123,560 for the improvements) to $132,310 <br />($28,750 for the land and $103,560 for the improvements). <br /> <br />Robert Kingsley stated that he is testifYing on behalf of the Assessor Jack Westerman who conducted the actual <br />physical inspection of the property. He stated that the value of the house may be impacted by the fact that it only <br />has one bedroom, since there have not been any sales of comparable property. Without market evidence the <br />Assessor's office is unable to make an adjustment. <br /> <br />n <br />~J 100% Recycled Paper <br />
