DOUGLAS <br />ARCIDE BARBER, JR. <br />JAMES A. DE LEO <br /> <br />CHAIRMAN <br />VICE-CHAIRMAN <br />MEMBER <br />ALTERNATE <br /> <br />MINUTES <br /> <br />SEPTEMBER 30,1991 <br /> <br />The Board of Equalization convened at 9:00 a.m. with Chairman AC. Dalgleish, Vice- <br />Chairman David G. Douglas, Member Archie Barber, Jr. and Clerk Dierdrei Keegan present. <br />Robert Kingsley of the Assessor's Office was also present. The Board dispensed with the <br />reading of the Minutes of previous meetings at this time. <br /> <br />JULIUS A. PEDERSEN <br />1035 MONROE STREET <br />PORT TOWNSEND, WA. 98368 <br /> <br />BOE: #91-086-LO <br />PN: 960 300 024 <br /> <br />Chairman Dalgleish introduced the Board members, the Clerk and Deputy Assessor Robert <br />Kingsley, explained the hearing process and then swore in Robert Kingsley and Mr. & Mrs. <br />Pedersen. <br /> <br />Mrs. Pedersen stated that they purchased this property in 1962 and their intent has always <br />been to keep if for their grandchildren. Chairman Dalgleish then read a letter from Linda <br />Atkins, Jefferson County Health Department to the Assessor dated August 8, 1991 which <br />advised the Petersen's that a licensed designer (Bernt Ericsen) stated that the property is <br />unsuitable for a conventional sewage disposal system. The Health Department could not make <br />a determination regarding the type of system that would be required because no soil logs were <br />submitted to them. The Health Department noted that the depth of this lot is 73.88 feet and <br />would require at least a mound or sand filter design to meet the reduced setback requirement <br />from surface water. <br /> <br />Mrs. Pedersen stated that they paid Mr. Ericsen to do the evaluation of the soils, but he did <br />not submit anything to them in writing. Mr. Pedersen said that he submitted the information <br />directly to the Health Department. Mrs. Pedersen stated that they paid to bring water to the <br />site to be able to use it for recreational vehicles. It is their opinion that a $37,500 <br />assessment is too high for this property. <br /> <br />Robert Kingsley reported that all lots in Hiller's Waterfront Tracts are valued at $75,000 <br />each. The value of the Pedersen's property was reduced by 50 percent due to size and <br />utilities. They called the Health Department in May of 1991 and they indicated the property <br />
