LESLIE G, SLATER was unable to be present. <br />ASSESSOR: MR. ROBERT SHOLD representing the Assessor's Office, <br />was present. <br /> <br />The petition and letter from petitioner stated that this five acre <br />piece of land was a very expensive source of firewood since it is <br />practically impossible to build on. Petitioner uses it as a wood lot, <br />There are no improvements on it, When it rains the access is <br />difficul t due to a clay problem with the soil. Peti tioner also <br />questions the ability to bring in power and water. He states that the <br />property is "unlikely to perk", Mr. Slater bought this lot, zoned as <br />a wood lot, for $6,750.00 June 2, 1987, The property has been offered <br />for sale at $7,500,00 for two years plus. It was listed with a <br />broker. When land did not sell they reduced the price to $6,750,00. <br />There were no comparable sales in the vicinity listed. Mr. Slater did <br />include a copy of his Real Estate Contract with his petition. Based <br />on the foregoing information, Mr. Slater requests a reduction in <br />assessed value from $10,000.00 to $6,750,00 as true and fair value, <br /> <br />The assessor, Robert Shold, stated that the assessed valuation was <br />$10,000,00 but there was no evidence that the purchase price was not <br />the true and fair value of property. The land being in a very wet <br />area, which tends to be steep, with lots of clay. Mr, Shold cannot <br />find any evidence that the sales prices in the area reflect <br />differently. He recommends that the Board accept the valuation of <br /> <br />1 <br />
