their business property he added Most are small business men and office holders he said and many have valuations of a few hundred dollars All are treated alike said Cleminshaw both small and large We have tried to be con servative and to price like things alike Many complaints have been re ceived on the increased assess ments the appraiser said Most of them are the result of the owners inclination

taxpayer will find that his taxes are on the same basis percentagewise as they were 10 years ago For example if his taxes were on a 510000 valua tion 10 years ago and are on a 20000 valuation now it would be 6 per cent in each instance In any event he said valuations now are on the same basis throughout the county The same firm appraised Clear Lake and the rest of tha county previously Notices
