DeLeo called the meeting to order at 10:00 A.M. Members William S. <br />Marlow and Richard A. Broders were present. <br /> <br />CORRESPONDENCE <br /> <br />The Board received a letter from the King County Board of Appeals/Equalization asking for <br />support for a request to the Legislature to consider an amendment that would limit the timeframe <br />for valuation settlements. The deadline would be 14 days prior to the hearing. After a brief <br />discussion, Member Bill Marlow moved to send a letter to the King County Board of <br />Appeals/Equalization in support of their request. Vice-Chairman Dick Broders seconded the <br />motion which carried by unanimous vote. <br /> <br />HEARINGS <br /> <br />Robert J. Clouse <br />2011 Redwood Street <br />Port Townsend, W A 98368 <br /> <br />BOE: 94-12-LO <br />94-13-LO <br />94-14-LO <br /> <br />PN: 985 203 701 <br />985 202 801 <br />985 202 802 <br /> <br />Robert J. Clouse was present. Robert Kingsley and Bob Shold were present on behalf of the <br />Assessor's office. Chairman James A. DeLeo explained the hearing process and swore them in. <br />Mr. Clouse stated that he owns 14 lots in the City of Port Townsend and he is protesting the <br />dollar amount per lot that he has been assessed. He is being assessed for prime residential <br />property, although he has used the land for pasture for his cattle since 1956. It is zoned <br />"agriculture". He is not interested in selling or developing the property. <br /> <br />Mr. Clouse has been accepted into the Open Space Agriculture Program this year, which will <br />reduce his taxes starting next year. His reason for coming before the Board is to ask to have his <br />valuation reduced before he goes into the Open Space Program. <br /> <br />Robert Kingsley said that the sales in the area show that the lots are assessed at fair market <br />value. <br /> <br />ft <br />'-J 100% Recycled Paper <br />
