<br />JEFFERSON COUNTY BOARD OF EQUALIZATION <br /> <br />n <br />A.C. Dalgleish j;tr <br />David G. Douglas <br />Archie Barber, Jr. {:,-~ <br />James A. DeLeo <br /> <br />Chairman <br />Vice-Chairman <br />Member <br />Alternate <br /> <br />MINUTES <br /> <br />August 29, 1985 <br /> <br />The Board met to hear petitions BE-85-89-A, BE-35-90-R, BE-85-91-R, BE-85-87-R-LO, <br />and BE-85-112-LO. The Board consisted of Chet Dalgleish, Chairman; Archie Barber, <br />Member; and Carolyn Lea, Secratary. The County Assessor's Office was represented <br />by nark 1'1c Cready. <br /> <br />The first three listed appeals were presented by property owner Dee Brueckman. <br /> <br />BE-85-89-A: Appellant stated that the subject property at 1619 Lincoln St. was on <br />a non standard lot size and was probably the most dilapidated hause in town. The <br />building provides a apartment down stairs and one upstairs. The profusion of <br />available rentals and the sad shape of the subject property are causing appellant to <br />lower rental prices with an expected increasing vacancy rate. Requested reduction ~ <br />from $31,790 to $25,235. Appraiser tic Cready on this date reworked this re-valuation <br />with an incresed depreceation factor and the lower rent received arriving at a <br />figure of $31,200. Assessed value is $5,250 land, $26,555 building with a total of <br />$31,790. ' <br /> <br />BE-85-90-R: Appellant describes this property as corner Lot 8, Block 64 next to <br />1629 Jefferson St. She says there is no view but the Assessor's comparables do. <br /> <br />Also reprtedly one other of the Assesso~'s comparables has a multi-family approval. <br />The building on appellant's lot is described as a very dilapidated garage, built <br />in the 1800's, which would have to be removed if a dwelling were constructed. <br />Assessed value is $11,170 for land and $2240 for improvements, appellant requests <br />$9,000 for 1 and and $300 for the garage. However she stated she coul d accept <br />the Assessor's figure on the land but the garage was without value. The Assessor <br />stands firm on the land value. A garage of an assessor's comparable (Mathieson) <br />was values at $600 V.s. $2240 for the appellant and was much better. Although <br />there are util ities available, none are on the property. <br /> <br />BE-85-91-R: This is the appellant's home located at 1244 Monroe St. It is assessed <br />at $20,000 for land and $62,100 for the home. Appellant requests reduction to <br />$23,555 for the home due to its age of 46 years and obvious deterioration through <br />years of rental. An addition of bedroom, bath, and dinning rooms recently was very <br />poorly dOQe and is now coming apart. Also there is a problem of the whole house on <br />an unstable slope causing structural and cosmetic damage, necessitating extensive <br />and expensive (in excess of $20,000) repairs. Appellant takes strong exception to <br />the comparables used by the Assessor; different style, age and condition. Extensive <br />exhibits from the appellant are in the office file. <br />The appraiser reports the subject property and comparables were judged and adjusted <br />on their own merits and allowances made for differences. <br /> <br />i <br />I <br />-~ <br />
