DeLeo called the meeting to order at 11:00 a.m. Vice-Chairman <br />William S. Marlow and Member Richard A. Broders were also present. <br /> <br />APPROVAL OF MINUTF~ <br /> <br />Vice-Chairman Bill Marlow moved to approve the minutes of December 8, 1993 as <br />presented. Member Dick Broders seconded the motion which carried by a unanimous vote. <br /> <br />HEARINGS <br /> <br />Robert Haggard <br />2203 16th Street <br />Everett, WA 98201-1714 <br /> <br />BOE: 93-39-LO <br />93-40-C <br /> <br />PN: 989 704 301 <br />989 704 304 <br /> <br />Mr. Haggard and Mr. Sherman were present. Bob Shold was present on behalf of the <br />Assessor's office. After Chairman DeLeo explained the hearing process and swore them in <br />Mr. Haggard gave his testimony. He stated that he agrees the highest and best use <br />represent~ market value and comparable sales are an indicator of the market, but these should <br />be modified for special circumstances and conditions. His building which is located <br />downtown Port Townsend was damaged by a major fire and now is basically a shell. The <br />second and third floors are useless but the ground floor was fixed up and is currently being <br />leased. The comparable buildings used by the Assessor's office are fully functioning <br />buildings while his is not. He does not feel it is fair to calculate the value of his building <br />with the same figures used to calculate the value of the other buildings. Since his is a <br />special circumstance he feels his property value should be figured with an income approach. <br /> <br />In November 1993 the Assessor made an offer to lower the value of the building from <br />$212,500 to $120,000 which Mr. Haggard felt was still too high. Don Sherman, stated his <br />backgrOlmd has allowed him to deal extea~ively with lending and house appraisal work which <br />he feels gives him the knowledge to testify on Mr. Haggard's befalf. He then presented <br />figures based on comparable property, replacement value and an income approach. <br /> <br />.. <br />'-.I 100% Recycled Paper <br />
