County Assessor James F. Nelson, an
nounces that the assessed valuation of
Clackamas county property will be
about doubled. Assessments on rail
roads and other incorporations will be
more than doubled, i here is no doubt
that these properties have been assessed
entirely too low, and, in fact, that al
most every other kind oi property has
been assessed too low in this county,
and this is the reason tbat the tax levy
in Clackamas ccunty is bo much higher
than it is in the various other counties
in the fctate. By doubling the valua
tion the levy will be reduced to a pretty
reasonable figure in the years to come,
and it will look much better to an out
sider who thinks of investing in proper
ty here to have a levy of say from 18 to
25 mils than the present rate.
