Assessment complaints fewer than feared by Mesa County assessor


Whether it’s a hot or a cold market, husband and wife Steve and Bobbi Miller said they always make the trip from Glade Park to the Old Mesa County Courthouse, 544 Rood Ave., to protest their assessment.

“It’s like people who don’t vote and then complain about the administration,” Bobbi Miller said. “When they do assessments, they do generalizations.”

The Millers said every couple years they visit the assessor’s office and point out discrepancies in their assessment. More often than not, they convince the office to dispatch an appraiser to Glade Park and take a look. Usually their assessment is lowered, they said.

Ladder Canyon
by: Frank Steele

We also own an undeveloped parcel of 35 acres on Ladder Canyon. As with the Landry acreage, our taxes for 09 were contested and denied. So, here we go again. We will contest the 2010 taxes and hope that it begins to sink in. I have found that the county tends to ignore us up in Ladder Canyon.

We filed our complaints with the rest you. Our 35 acre parcel jumped 64% in value as well as the tax rate from 08 to 09. Our lot is a back lot on Ladder Canyon with an easement to get to and not on a county road. It is not accessable year round and it has no utilities available and it also backs up the the Bredvik unregistered car farm. They just lumped our lots in with all the Little Park Ranch lots. In 07 we paid $1600 for our home on 70 acres. We sold our home in 08 and now just own the 35 acres of vacant land which they want over $2800 for taxes. What the heck is going on?
