Canal Assessment 2014 - Great News
Posted on Tuesday, August 26 @ 16:25:30 CDT (10 reads)
Money and Finances

We all recently got our 2014 Property Tax estimate, the TRIM report, in the mail. On the estimate the canal assessment was again stated to be $700.00 instead of a correct lesser amount.

Several of our neighbors and members of the board contacted the county to voice their concern and asked for a review and correction. Hooray. The effort paid off. Our assessment will be $453.10 and it will be the last assessment to satisfy our current indebtedness to the county.

The following is the confirmation email from Henry Brewton of the county.

I apologize for the inaccurate canal assessment on your TRIM notice. I have been in this office about 9 months and was unaware of the issues with Polynesian Canal when the assessment was sent to the Property Appraiser’s office. Numerous calls prompted me to investigate the matter. After reviewing available information it has been determined that the final assessment for Polynesian Isles Canal should be $453.10. This rate has been forwarded to the Property Appraiser’s office and will appear on the 2014 tax bill in November. Again, I apologize for any frustration this has caused you and your neighbors.

Sincerely,Henry Brewton

This does not mean that the MSBU should go away. We still have to maintain our canal system to protect our property value. The future of the MSBU will be discussed at the Annual Membership Meeting in November. Stay tuned.

Special thanks to all members of our community who expressed concern and got the action that we deserve.
