<br />. <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />. <br /> <br />Board of Equalization Minutes: September 20, 1991 <br /> <br />Page: 2 <br /> <br />Chairman Dalgleish asked the appellant if he would apply for another septic permit? Mr. <br />Marshall answered that he doesn't plan to right now because they cannot afford to build <br />now. They plan to sell their house and move onto the property when he is close to retirement <br />which is 15 to 20 years away. <br /> <br />Chairman Dalgleish asked Mr. Marshall if he would be willing to accept reduction down to <br />$17,600. Mr. Marshall stated that he thinks that is fair. It is certainly more fair than <br />$27,600. He added that he doesn't really know property values that well. He is fond of the <br />property which has some advantages and some disadvantages. He knows he will have a real <br />problem getting water. Right now they use the property for camping out. His main concern <br />is getting the assessment down to where he can afford to hang on to it. <br /> <br />Mr. Marshall added that the parcel is cut in half by the county road. They probably lose <br />3/4 of an acre from the County roadway. Robert Kingsley reported that the assessed value <br />is on 4.6 acres which takes into consideration the road that runs through the parcel. He <br />added that acreage is assessed at $6,000 per acre on five acre parcels in that area based on <br />sales. <br /> <br />DETERMINATION MOTION <br /> <br />Vice-Chairman Douglas reported that a site inspection of the <br />property was scheduled for October 18, 1991. He moved to <br />waive inspection in light of the Assessor and the Petitioner <br />having agreed to a reduction to $17,600. He then move to <br />approve and issue an order that the valuation be reduced to <br />$17,600 as recommended. Member Archie Barber seconded the <br />motion. The motion carried by a unanimous vote. <br /> <br />ROBERT W. BECKMAN <br />401 SOUTH BAY LANE <br />PORT LUDLOW, WA. 98365 <br /> <br />BOE: 91-062-LO <br />PN: 969-300-006 <br /> <br />Robert Kingsley was present on behalf of the Assessor's Office. <br /> <br />Chairman Dalgleish reported that a letter dated September 16, 1991 was received from <br />Robert W. Beckman requesting that his appeal be withdrawn. <br /> <br />Robert Kingsley stated that there has not been an adjustment agreement made with Mr. <br />Beckman. On September 16, 1991 Mr. Beckman came into the Assessor's Office request- <br />ing information on where he'd go to withdraw his appeal. Robert Kingsley introduced himself <br />to Mr. Beckman at that time and explained how the property was valued. Mr. Beckman <br />contended that he could not prove that his value was less than what Assessor had placed on <br />his property for 1991. His concern was that his property was valued equitably with his <br />neighbor's property. After explaining to him how the property was valued Mr. Beckman <br />
