The Walcott City Council Tax Equalization Meeting was held April 8th, 2021 at 7:30 pm at the Walcott Fire Hall.
In attendance were Mayor Vining, council members Brown, Bennes, and Rhodenbaugh. Also in attendance was Wendy Matejcek and Rod Romereim with the Assessor’s Office, Linda Nelson, Clayton Rieger, and Darrin Nelson.
Wendy presented the Assessor’s Office Tax Equalization Hearing information, including sales ratios, credits, mobile home report, and city taxable valuation & mills. Wend then presented the 2021 Walcott Mass Residential & Commercial Appraisals. A number of properties drastically increased, some due to updates to the property information and many due to a county-wide increase based on sales ratios. Wendy and council proceeded to address any audience questions.
Rhodenbaugh motioned to accept and approve the presented 2021 Walcott Tax Equalization report, pending possible revisions made by Wendy after working with some city resident, seconded by Bennes. All approved, motion carried.
Meeting was adjourned.
