DOUGLAS <br />ARCHIE BARBER, JR. <br />JAMES A. DE LEO <br /> <br />CHAIRMAN <br />VICE-CHAIRMAN <br />MEMBER <br />ALTERNATE <br /> <br />MINUTES <br /> <br />S E P T E M B E R 2 0, 1 9 9 1 <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 />Bob 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 />RICHARD M. MARSHALL <br />1906 LANDES STREET <br />PORT TOWNSEND, WA. 98368 <br /> <br />BOE: 91-067-LO <br />PN: 901 103 001 <br /> <br />Chairman Dalgleish explained hearing process and swore in Appraiser Robert Kingsley and <br />Mr. and Mrs. Marshall. <br /> <br />Richard Marshall stated that the original assessment was $15,000 when they purchased <br />property and at that time he felt it was a bit high. Considering lack of development he was <br />surprised when he received the re-assessment. The property does not perc and that will not <br />change. Experts have looked at the site, but since it has been determined that the entire <br />property is covered with clay, a fairly expensive alternative septic system is necessary. They <br />have decided to sit on property until such time as they can afford that. Mr. Marshall added <br />that the elevated tax assessment is a real hardship. They do not have any intention of <br />installing water or power on the property, and he feels the original assessment would be fair. <br />He has put in a driveway on the south side of the property. A permit was approved for the <br />installation of a culvert and the re-installation of the driveway. <br /> <br />Robert Kingsley reported that he has not been to this property. He is presenting this case <br />for Appraiser Bob Shold who is ill. He then read a statement from Bob Shold stating: "The <br />appellant has submitted a site evaluation report from the Health Department. This shows <br />the site to be unacceptable. The report is dated 4/26/85. The property has apparently not <br />been tested since then for perc reasons. The Health Department now allows alternative <br />systems to be installed and almost all properties will support some system. The Assessor's <br />Office policy is to reduce the assessed value by $10,000.00. This is determined to be the <br />difference between the cost of a mound system and a conventional septic system. The assessed <br />value of the subject property should therefore be reduce from $27,600 to $17,600." <br />
