City ends work on valuation appeals

Anyone in the market for property in downtown Mitchell should have attended the two nights of assessment appeals that wrapped up Wednesday.
Property owners repeatedly offered to sell their land and buildings as they discussed their assessments. The meetings were held at the north campus of Mitchell Technical Institute.
Robert Schoenfelder, who owns the Midtown Plaza at 400 N. Main St., asked Wednesday to have his assessment dropped to $525,000, and the board agreed to recommend that figure.

Would-be opponents such as Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Sarah Palin had been trying out this somewhat contradictory line of attack for more than a month, as Obama gave mixed signals about events in Egypt and Libya. But the “weak leader” charge gained traction last weekend as Obama chose to launch the attack on Gaddafi’s forces while on an adventure in South America with family.
