The Commissioners directed Gouger to meet with Building Superintendent Dwaine Sones for an inspection tour of the county buildings so that he might prepare a preliminary proposal.
Meeting as the Board of Equalization (BOE) the Commissioners considered the following correction sheets presented by Assessor Amanda Lane: To accelerate the taxes on a mobile home sold by Bruce and Gyna Gordon and moved from the county. To accelerate the taxes on a mobile home sold by John Rouillard and moved from the county.
The Assessor informed the Board that she was required by law to refuse the tax-exempt status requested by Hands of Faith Ministry on a 2.5-acre parcel of land until construction on the site had begun. The BOE concurred with her finding.
The Board granted approval for the Assessor to correct the state copy of the file of land values for Sheridan County as per instructions from John Canon and Mark Loose of the State Department of Revenue. The values were correctly calculated and entered into the County database but a data transfer problem caused the state file to be corrupted.
The BOE approved a correction to the type of soil listed on parcel of ag land in the estate of Dorothy Bottorff.
