The Assessor iMaUIng Inquiries for
Deputy Noith, Assessor Sigler's
right hand man iu the county asses
sor's office, was in town Monday
making imiuiries iu regard to prop
erty values so as to be able to make
up his assessment roll satisfactorily
to all concerned.
" hut we want to do," said Mr.
Noitli, "is to give everybody an
even break on their values. We
try to do it every year, but there
is generally 11 kick. Twenty esti
mates 011 the values iu St. Johns
could be made up, and there would
be something the matter with each
one. The copic can help the
assessor's ollice out if they will.
We are not estimating the value of
the improvements, but are after the
real valuations of the laud. These
values are based on the valuation
of the laud un March 1 of the pres
ent year. Au estimate of the val
ues of proiierty iu bt. Johns that
will please everybody is out of the
question, but if the proerty owners
and tax payers will cootterate with
the assessor St. Johns values will
be as near correct us experts and
owners can make them,"
To allow examination and to
obtain suggestions Mr. North left 11
map with the values of all property
iu the city plainly marked, with
the Commercial club. Any ersoii
interested may examine this map
and suggestions as to the actual
values ol real estate iu any pait of
the city will be thankfully received.
The assessor and his deputy are
entitled to a great deal of consider-,
iitlou for the interest they have'
taken iu the matter, and it is to be '
hoed that every courtesy will be
extended to enable them to get at ,
facts that will help them to render,
a fair and impartial appraisement of ,
the city's ti al estate. I
