On Thursday, September 22, 2011 at 5.30pm, the Macon County Commissioners met to consider whether or not to begin the Property Revaluation process this year or hold off to see if the economy begins to recover. Chief among the commissioners concerns was that a revenue neutral revaluation now would mean increased taxes for the bulk of Macon County taxpayers, a move that would hurt those with the lowest valued property the most.
It is my opinion that the Commissioners will vote to not launch a property revaluation at this time.
Here is the full video of that meeting, followed by a copy of the presentation that County Tax Officer Richard Lightner displayed during the meeting to illuminate what he was saying and a listing of the tweets I sent out during the meeting in reverse chronological order:
