Assessor Revises Valuations, Mayor On Full Time Damage Control

THE GUARDIAN learned today the Canyon County Assessor and his crew have had a change of heart on the initial commercial property assessments that reflected anywhere from 150% to 400% over what they were last year. Adjustments are now being made by Assessor staff to reflect current market values before they go to appeals before the County Commissioners. (You have to make a formal appeal to get the adjustment)

Caldwell East Urban Renewal Agency land purchases created a nightmare for Caldwell business and commercial property owners via the excessive prices and just plain obscene relocation allowances they paid for property they bought. The political backlash has been severe for Team Garret and the Urban Renewal big spenders.

Mayor Nancolas has been burning up the phone lines trying to mend fences with all of the people caught in the irresponsible valuations created by his administration and urban renewal. Is there a Spin Doctor in the house who can help unwind this mess?

The current situation is now to the point there will be a candidate running against every incumbent from Mayor to all three City Councilors up for reelection this Fall.

Mayor Nancolas has a long list of negatives to overcome between now and the election. His rubber stamp city council members up for reelection have the same issues to overcome. Mayor Nancolas has had twelve long years in office to effect change and economic progress to Caldwell. We remain today a city without a plan.

A public discourse on the issues of the day makes the world a better place.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
