Board of Appeals and Equalization in Lanesboro


Fri, Apr 12th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Government

By Jade Sexton

Ron Vikre, appraiser from the County Assessor’s Office, was at the Lanesboro City Council meeting on April 8 to discuss 2012 property assessments in Lanesboro and answer any questions.

According to Vikre, there were 158 residential sales in Fillmore County, 13 commercial /industrial sales, and 47 agricultural sales.

Vikre explained that properties must be assessed at between 90-105 percent of their market value.

Lanesboro’s levy went down 2.376 percent in 2012. The value of all property in Lanesboro is $56,404,400.

Richard Horihan asked Vikre about his property assessments, and asked about what happens if the assessors make a mistake. Vikre explained that if there are typos, a mistake can be corrected for up to a year. Horihan said he pointed out a mistake to the assessor’s office, and it was corrected, but he did not receive a refund. The mistake was in the property value.

Horihan said they should have the board of appeals at the same time as the budget meetings in December. “It’s extremely confusing for most people,” he said. “It’s a horrible system.”

Vikre said they have to abide by certain policies, and that legislators are the only ones that can change things. “The bottom line is we have rules we have to follow.”

Norwegian Flags

Ethan Bjelland, apprentice at the Commonweal Theatre, approached the council about placing flags of Norway along Parkway and Coffee Street for Lanesboro’s Ibsen Festival.

Bjelland said the Commonweal would like to add a little more Norwegian to the festival. “We have a lot to celebrate about our Norwegian heritage,” he said. One hundred years ago, Norway became the first country to allow women to vote, and to celebrate that, the Ibsen Festival will include a feminist play, A Doll’s House. There will also be a display of dresses and several speakers.

The flags will be free of charge and are being borrowed from Decorah. Bjelland asked the city if it was okay to put the flags on the light posts, and also if they had the personnel that could put them up and take them down. The council approved the flags, and approved the Commonweal to put up the flags and take them down.
