Reassessment notices are be- ing sent to owners of real property in Mankato City, Cen- ter Township, and Erving Township. Alvin Fall, Jr., county clerk, mailed the no- tices Wednesday evening, Ap- ril 26. The state legislature passed a reassessment law in 1963, which went into effect in 1964. It gave the counties a period of five years to complete re- assessment. Every piece of real property is, to be assessed at 30 percent "justifiable val- ue,t, The counties in the state had the option of doing the re- assessing or hiring a profes- sional firm. The county com- missioners in Jewell County made the decision to have the reassessment done by local poQple. (In the opinion of the editor of the Record, this was a wise decision). Neighboring counties, who have hired pro- nu j__ JEWIrLL COUNTY LOSES POPULATION Jewell County has lost popu- lation during the past year, According to figures compiled in the office of county clerk, Alvin C.

Necessary forms may be obtained by call- ing at the post office during regular business hours. Job cleaner position will average 19.3 hours, six days a week. Lyle E. Rafferty, Postmaster. Omaha, Nebr. -- More than 200 rural and urban women will gather here on May 4 to assess both their differences and the many things they have in common. "Farm-City Understanding - both ways" will be the theme of the "Stockyards Brunch at noon that day at the Livestock Exchange Building. Developing the theme and stressing the need for greater two-way un- derstanding will be Lyle Lig- gett, director of public rela- tlons, American National Cat- tlemen's Association, Denver. The Union Stock Yards Com- pany of Omaha will host the brunch as part of the 21st an- nual Rural Homemakers Lead- ership Recognition Day of the Omaha Chamber of Com- merce. The one-day program will conclude with an evening banquet at which awards will be presented. Honorees were selected for their leadership in rural com- munities. The Omaha program is the only one of Its kind in the nation. The honoree attending from Mankato; Kansas will be Miss Lucy Wiley. fessional firms are being charged between $35,000 and $~0,O0O to get this work donb. In Jewell County, it is estimat- ed that the cost to the county will be $6,000.00. The reassessment in the county is being done under the direction of the county !clerk. In each township, the ~rustee is helping with the work. In the cities, the assess- ors and other local people have I been helping with the work. In Jewels County, after the work has been done by local people, the assessme~nts have been reviewed by the city council or township board be- fore placed on the tax rolls. There are parts of Jewell County which have not been reassessed completely for 3$ years prior to the passing of this law. The work has been moving along as rapidly as possible. Prior to this year, all other towns in county had been reassessed and several townshins. The reassessment Job in the whole county will be completed before the dead- line. Any taxpayer in the county has the right to appeal an assessment. Appeals must be filed in the office of the county clerk at Mankato by May 5, 1967. In practically every case, the assessment wilr be higher than it has been before. In- flation is one cause of this and the other is the fact most pro- perty was assessed below 30 percent of "justifiable value". It is suggested that a tax. payer, when he receives his reassessment, take what he or she thinks is the actual value of the property and multiply by 30 percent. Then take this figure and compare it to the assessment figure for 1967. The assessment of property is a tough Job. Reasse~mmlt is tougher because practically all assessments are higher. The local people, who have done this hard Job, have tl~ their best judgment and their intentions have been to treat everyone 100 percent fair. In' accepting this task, Mr. Fall and his helpers have saved the county a large amount o~ money. Jewell County people m fair minded individuals. They realize individuals have diffel~ ences of opinions. They can appeal if they don't agree with the reassessment figures. Be- fore becoming too aro~l~l with your reaszessment, it is 'suggested that you visit with a friend or relative, who lives ill a county where a professional firm was hired to do this Job.
