Albany Assessment 9

Attended a neighborhood meeting at First Presbyterian Church. People complained about, among other things, inconsistencies and errors in determining SFLAs (Square Feet of Living Area) of properties. Since the basis of appealing one’s assessment is to show nearby properties with higher SFLAs and lower assessments, these inconsistencies and errors make appealing complicated. A couple of people said there should be a class action suit against the city, but no lawyer stood up. A person did say that if the Board of Assessment Review did not grant one's appeal, one should sue the city in small claims court and one will probably win.

Added the two blocks of Spring Street and the first block of Henry Johnson Boulevard to my Center Square + Hudson/Park version of my assessments program.
