Minutes - April 6, 2016


Present: Michael Jordan and Terry N. Towne

Absent: Jane Fowler

There was only one item on the agenda and that was to review an Application for Abatement of Property Taxes, dated March 10, 2016 from Gregory and Kathleen Haass, Map 8, Lot 22. Jordan and Towne reviewed the application for accuracy, the property cards from the surrounding area were reviewed for land values, as was the base tax value map. It was determined that the present value of the lot in question is consistent with like properties in the area. Also, Title 36 841 was reviewed and it was determined the Application for Abatement of Property Taxes, dated March 10, 2016, had not been filed in a timely manner, which is 185 days from the date of Commitment, July 9, 2015. Towne made a motion to deny on the basis the Application for Abatement was not filed within 185 days from the date of the last commitment. Jordan seconded the motion and the motion was passed unanimously. Towne will prepare the letter of denial to be forwarded that property owners. The meeting was adjourned at 7:15
