The Board reconvened on May 18, 2009, and the following decisions were made:

 

Ms. Lou Ann Myrick – Board seeking opinion regarding usage of agriculture property from Kay County District Attorney’s office.

 

Mr. & Mrs. Donus Parker – Parker’s wanted valuation lowered, felt because the market is down it should be lowered.  Equalization Board thought it was reasonable and Motion was made by Harden and seconded by Estes with no change in assessed value because it was $10,000 below sale price.  Motion carried:  Cary, aye; Estes, aye; Harden, aye.

 

Mr.  & Mrs. Doug Brown – Brown’s reason for protesting was because they thought value was too high.  Equalization Board noted the Assessor’s office did extensive research and adjusted value from $400,000 to $356,789.  Motion was made by Estes and seconded by Harden to accept as submitted by Assessor’s office.  Motion carried:  Cary, aye; Estes, aye; Harden, aye.

Mr. Mark Hoban, Property Valuation Services-Commercial Property Kay County Hospital Co LLC – Mr. Hoban said he considered the cost and market to support a lower assessed value.  The Board reviewed the cost and market value and it was assessed less than the purchase price; and the hospital made additions to the property.  Motion was made by Estes and seconded by Harden to sustain current market value at $18,324,803.00.  Motion carried:  Cary, aye; Estes, aye; Harden, aye.
