SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING

LOCAL BOARD OF APPEAL AND EQUALIZATION MEETING

The council met both in person and by phone for the local board of appeals and equalization. Ranulfo Moreno came to the meeting but his concern wasn’t in regards to his property tax valuation, so his concerns will be heard at the normal April council meeting. There were 6 sales listed in Grove City that sold and had a sales ratio of 61%. The council was concerned with the amount that property values increased, with numerous properties having around a 30% increase. Hudec inquired whether he could request a re-evaluation of all properties in Grove City, and Lee Schroeder, Meeker County Assessor, informed him property owners need to request that themselves and would need to be present at this meeting. Hudec requested that his property is reevaluated. Schroeder suggested the board make a motion of no change, and it can be reevaluated by the county once they can come out and reevaluate in person. Evenson made a motion for no change for Jesse Hudec and for Joshua & Christina Peterson’s properties. Peterka seconded the motion. Evenson, Peterka, Martin, and Halterman voted in favor, Hudec abstained. Motion carried. Schroeder will re-evaluate once they are allowed to physically go out to do property inspections. Martin asked to also appeal his value; Halterman made a motion for no change to Martin’s property, Peterka seconded the motion. Peterka, Halterman, Evenson, and Hudec voted in favor, Martin abstained. Motion carried.

Council member Halterman made a motion to adjourn the special meeting; council member Evenson seconded the motion. Motion carried with all members voting in favor. Meeting adjourned.
