This past week was the week of the Board of Review where people with complaints about their property taxes can ask to have their assessment reviewed.
I am part of that board.
This year was a fairly quiet year on the board: The usual "my taxes are too high" with no documentation to bolster their claim, a few with facts and figures, and this year, lots of time in between people. And even a little knitting and some euchre games. Nothing like last year when rising farm land prices caused an up tick in assessments. And complaints!
There are a couple other times when we may perhaps need to meet briefly, but for the most part we are done till next year.
While I was there, I asked about casting a write-in presidential vote. May be harder than I hoped. In order to be counted, I must be voting for a certified write-in candidate. Darn. But I was asked to work the elections too, in August and November!
More fun times.
Meanwhile, at home, Lewie is preventing much knitting from getting done.
