Miner announced today. Decision to make the reappraisal was .made by the City Council December 2, and was due in part to the wide; variance between values shown on assessment records and actual sales prices. paid. The council approved at the same time a contract for the services of the Public. Administration Service, Chicago, III., to assist the assessor's office in the work. Non-Profit Group The P. A. S, is a non-profit organization, and is expert in the appraisal field. It was decided by the council Ho engage the organization for the purpose of placing the; assessments of all lands and buildings in the city on u sound and equitable basis. This will be the first time in the history of the city that a complete reappraisal of improvements^ has. been made. The last reappraisal of land values was made in 192!). Herbert A. Olson, western representative of the P. A. S., is expected here after the first of tlie year to lay. the groundwork and outline the procedure to be used in the reappraisal work. Hire T/oca! Help Hr. Miner said that it is expected that the bulk of the work will 'be i performed by workers hired locally, who will work under plans made by Mr. Olson. Equalization of property taxation between each section of the city and upon .the various classes of property—industrial, commercial, residential, will be the primary objective of the. reappraisal project, Mr. Miner said. The extent to which the reappraisal will change the valuation ot the city.is a question that cannot be answered %niil the project is completed early next fall, the assessor said. Land Values Separate Mr. Minor said that land vuluos will be- established separately from building and other improvements, and the first step in* the project will be to bring maps and. records up to date. ' " ' Field work on-'land valuation will start shortly after the first of the year, followed-by the. analysis and computation o£ the value of improvements. City Manager Vance Van Hiper in his report and analysis to the City Council on" the annual budget and revenue for the fiscal year 194G- 1947, L recommended a reapprateal ot" the taxable property to establish a sound and equitable basis for property .valuation-and the adoption of a uniform system of public accounting. To Cost S-'fl.OOO According: to Mr. "Van Riper Uio -complete cost of the re-appraisal project is expected to total approximately $20,000, a sum appropriated by council for the purpose. City "hall attaches pointed out that since the 1946-1947 fiscal year ends June 30 T 1947 t the new tax base that will .undoubtedly be set hy the reappraisal couU not possibly be used before the 1949-1950 fiscal year. At present,'the total assessed valuation of the city is $49,285,985, compared with the 1945-1946 valuation of $46,651,015. Of the total valuation, ?14.S40;S45 is land; $23.818,085 is improvements; $10,527,430 is personal property, and $99,025 is money. The greatest increase between the current fiscal year and the last is shown in the improvement column for a total of-"•$1.424,390, with personal property second with a total of ?l,143,Jfi5. assessments -a E.
