Unapproved Minutes

Gettysburg, South Dakota

March 19, 2020

Mayor Wuttke reconvened meeting of the Local Board of Equalization to order at the City Finance Office at 6:15PM.  Other board members present:  Philip Nagel, Dawn Nagel, Kelly Archer (via phone), Brad Frost (via phone), Paul Kellogg as member of the School Board, Adam Roseland, as Director of Equalization, and Sheila Schatz, Finance Officer.

Appointments in duration of 15 minutes were made with residents as they turned in their assessment appeals at the City Finance Office.  Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and Governor Noem declaring a state of emergency, and after receiving word from State guidance, it was decided to handle each appointment via conference call.  It was explained that all or any may re-appeal with the County if not in agreement with the Local Board of Equalization’s recommendation but new forms must be turned into the County no later than April 7, 2020, by 5:00PM.

Any changes to lots were in effort by the Local Board of Equalization to standardize assessment value according to size of lot with small adjustments for curb and gutter and location.
