Following the City’s decision to approve the remaining four sets of assessments on September 28th, we have served our second appeal against the 2018 mill & overlay charges on the City clerk. This new appeal is from property owners on Franklin Ave., Prior Ave., Third St. and Western Ave. and comprises an additional 16 properties. We’ll file our appeal notice with the District Court within the next 10 days.
This takes us up to 36 properties and 45 named appellants in total across the two appeals. Typically, the city relies on a mixture of short deadlines, specific procedural requirements, and economic reality to make it impractical for folks to appeal their assessments. With this many people standing together, that’s not an option this time.
