Favors Postponement William Schadewald felt the council should postpone it for two years since the state did not put through a tax reform program. He added, too, that a revaluation should not be less than 10 years apart, in his opinion, and that it should be done via budget pro visions rather than with emergency funds. Dr. Neil McDonald, president, said the revaluation is necessary because assessments are so far out -of line it hurts, particularly in the county tax levy against the township. "This is the only way we can rectify it, and it would be very unwise to postpone (reevaluation) for any period of time," McDonald said. Fred Henrici, another resident, asked the council to be sure the contract has a clause where by the revaluators would have to appear in court to defend their assessments in appeals. He said a number of companies appealed and won reduced assessments be cause tne I9aa-i9a6 revaluators did not appear in court.
