Chair Craig Gondeck. Brian Koester,
Koester explained that there were not many property adjustments in
Parcel 12.00703.00: David & Carrie Sweeney. The increase on their market value is due to the construction of a new garage. David showed the receipts for his construction materials. The county’s value on the garage was $24,000; David has $17,100 in costs. Brian said that after learning that the garage does not have electric service, he recommends decreasing the value to $16,900. Total market value for the parcel was reduced to $254,200 on motion by Supervisor Erdmann and second by Supervisor Gondeck.

Motion was made by Supervisor Gondeck and seconded by Supervisor Erdmann to adjust the valuation of parcel 12.00377.00 owned by Jordan Johnson to $240,400 because the basement is not finished.
D & H Properties have requested an adjustment by phone. The county assessor will review lots which Supervisor Erdmann indicated are non-buildable: one is a holding pond and the other could become a park. Motion was made by Supervisor Erdmann and seconded by Supervisor Gondeck to enter parcels 12.01511.00 and 12.01512.00 without change but to have the assessor review the lots.
The Assessor indicated that he has sent notices to everyone who did not send in their homestead request. They have until December to apply.
