The discussion at the three hour meeting at listers office tended to jump around Between these various Points but tile following is a summary of pertinent comments made by listers Francis j. Hogan chairman of the three Man Board Raymond p. Betit and Charles Toomey. As to the business District listers answer was an indirect one in which they referred to other commercial districts notably the Bennington Flats stretch it i the North Bennington Road. They noted that the top value of frontage in the Village business District carries a valuation of $880 a foot while the value on the North Bennington Road had been but $8 to $10. To reflect the increased commercial value Here they said they had raised the front foot valuation to $100 a and even this figure created a a we left main Street alone and have tried to bring the other up where the commercial value is going up a they said. In respect to certain Village business properties on which the group made specific inquiries As to reductions listers indicated that in some cases the 1966 figure was lower than the 1958 figure because of fires and the fact that one or two Story buildings had replaced what had been three Story buildings. On Industrial properties listers made two Points. One was that the Sale Price of such properties a these apparently have been higher than the current appraised values used in the grand list assessments a this figure was not for buildings alone but included such things As Good will trademarks and other non real estate factors. A these buildings in Many cases Are antiquated a listers said a and bring anything by themselves like the Selling Price on the package of Industrial property a they also advised the group that local industries a a often Are paying More in personal property taxes than they Are in real property taxes and indicated they Felt industries a Are paying their fair share of taxes in this a your relations have been Good with local Industry a they added a and we try to encourage they noted that personal property assessments did not appear in the 1966 publication of individual property assessments. Combs commented that he agreed with this Basic approach but said it should not be carried to the Point that a it results in an Overly heavy Burden on other property he added that he thought local residents generally were not aware of the Large portion of personal property taxes which Bennington industries Are paying. Factors cited by listers As bearing on their determination of property assessments included Selling Price Type of construction location improvements and there was some discussion at several Points on the matter of repairs and improvements. Listers indicated that where it was a Case of Small individual repairs or Upkeep such As painting these a a improvements had no bearing on a property a valuation. But where a property had fallen into bad disrepair and a major rehabilitation was carried out they considered that this did increase the property a value and its assessment was increased accordingly. Where the line was drawn however is not a simple thing according to Betit. A this is not an exact science a he said a you can to put All things Down As a matter of specifics. Its a Case of referring to various properties on which listers had set an assessment that was lower than a known Selling Price the group on a couple of occasions asked listers if they Ever set an assessment that was higher than the Selling Price. Listers answer was in the affirmative noting that this might be the Case where they knew the Sale had been a a a forced one that is where the owner in his urgency to get rid of the property had accepted a Price that was lower than might have otherwise been accepted. In one instance where they put an appraised value on a property that was higher than for what it had been sold they said they had Felt the previous owner a got a Good to oking and in another such Case they Felt the buyer a got a As to various individual properties listers offered a variety of reasons to the group on its inquiries regarding properties on which assessments had gone Down at some Point Between 1958 and 1966, the two most recent years when full listings of property assessments have been published. In some cases the reduction shown Oti the groups cards was apparently due simply to a change in the listers records. In these cases where All of a particular property holding was on one card for the 1958 figure some portion of it had been listed on a second card by the time of the 1966 assessment thus resulting in a reduction in the valuation shown for the balance of property on the first card. In other cases the reduction was due to some building such As an old barn having been removed Between the two dates or some parcel of the original land listed having been sold. In several instances fire was cited As the reason behind a reduction in assessment in some of these cases where a building had been replaced after a fire it was not As Large a Structure As the one it replaced. In one Case listers referred to their rating on the Type of construction of buildings. This ranges in a list of standards from Grade a a excellent a Down to Grade a a very a final key Factor in the Case of a number of the reductions was that of judgment in which listers said the appraisal of a property had been reduced to More accurately reflect its current fair Market value. At a Point Early in the meeting listers said this Factor was behind 90 per cent of whatever reduced assessments there were Many of these Cli Anges had come in 1959, the year after a new state Law had gone into effect which listers said directed them to rate property at its fair Market value and not a its just value in Money As had been the previous Laws directive. On a number of occasions throughout the meeting one or another of the aggrieved group indicated they agreed with whatever valuation that listers had come up with. And in his statement sunday night Sleeman agreed that for some of the cases taken up listers had provided valid reasons for reduced assessments. But the groups dissatisfaction he indicated related primarily to the Factor of listers a Over and Over a he said a they referred to bringing properties in line with fair Market value that covers an awful in one particular instance he said that listers had Given As their reason for a reduction on a property valuation from $32,000 to $28,000 the fact that a they Felt sorry for the a a there a something wrong there a Sleeman said. A Banner reporter at the session did not recall the instance cited by sleep Nan but he said that it had happened on one occasion during the meeting Perrotta said he had assumed that with the reappraisal All property owners to some extent at least would share in the increased property assessments. The fact that they Haven the noted Means that for the property owner whose assessment has been reduced or remains the same he will be paying less total taxes. A this is what confuses me a he said. As a partial answer on this Point at least Lister Toomey noted that at the time of the 1950-51 reappraisal carried out by the professional firm of Cole layer and Trumble the firm had indicated that As a Rule in such reappraisal 50 per cent of the individual property assessments go up 25 per cent go Down and 25 per cent stay the same. A in our Case this year a he said a probably 90 per cent of the assessments have gone in two cases brought up by the group listers indicated there was a Chance of error in the assessments they had set and indicated these would be reviewed. One other key bit of information brought out at the meeting which Combs thought could Bear publicizing was the fact that the grand list Book published in 1958 by the town did not follow an across the Board reappraisal such As has been the Case for the 1966 publication. He thought that a lot of people probably had the wrong Assumption about this. Accidents investigated a northbound Ford truck operated by John f. Cannavan of Bennington was totally damaged on Hunt Street about 4 30 . Saturday when it struck guard rails on the right Side of the Highway and spun around with a car it was towing. Village police said the owner of the truck was Marjorie c. Cannavan.

It has also been determined that the reflectivity of the ring is the same As that of Snow and so the particles Are ice covered or consist entirely of ice.

Knapp 35, of main Street. Both cars were extensively damaged and Knapp complained of a sore neck. The it. Anthony Union school Board has left unanswered two questions relating to the use of Union District school buses. Should the buses pick up students bound for schools outside the Bennington South supervisory Union and should the buses be made available to the Community for other than school business while recognizing the need for a policy in each Case Union school directors Felt it would be unwise to act without consulting directors of the Bennington school District. The Board noted that its sister school Board had acted unilaterally on the same questions but it hoped that Bennington school directors would reconsider these actions of necessary. The need for cooperation was seen arising from the Exchange system in effect this year whereby Union District buses Are transporting Many elementary pupils just As Bennington school District buses Are transporting Union school students. The it. Anthony Board Felt that policies governing the use of the buses should therefore be consistent Between the two districts. Accordingly the Board said it would be governed by recon emendations of the joint transportation committee the group that devised bus schedules for both the it. Anthony District and the Bennington school District. The committee draws its membership from both boards. Wednesday night the Bennington school Board adopted two policies without consulting the Union school Board a students attending private schools will be Able to ride on buses of the Bennington school District on a space available basis and provided no additional expense is involved in picking them up.

A musical family miss Eaton also has a brother playing clarinet in the army Field band. A non school organizations will be denied use of the buses for trips they would like to make with their members or other groups. These policies were adopted in response to transportation requests from parents of parochial students and from the Bennington Little league which sought several buses to take youngsters to a ballgame at Fenway Park sept. 17. The Union school Board also received these requests. Additionally it had heard from parents of elementary school children in North Bennington who wanted Union school buses in route to the North Bennington school to pick up the children of space were available. Like its sister Board the it. Anthony group was not unfavourable to the idea of accommodating children from other districts so Long As there was space available and the children boarded buses at regular stops. However it Felt there were several unknowns to be explored a primarily How Many requests could be expected and How much space will be available once the transportation Effort is established and becomes routine. These were matters for the joint transportation committee the Board Felt. With regard to the request from the Bennington Little league it. Anthony directors said it raised several issues a the problem of distinguishing Between what is a school and what is a Community function the problem of whether this distinction should be raised at All and whether equipment As vital to the school system As buses should be risked however minimally for extra school functions. To avoid keeping the Bennington Little league waiting for an answer the it. Anthony Board denied the request. However the denial was made subject to any recommendation by the joint committee leaving the door slightly ajar should the two school districts wish to adopt a different or slightly different policy in the future. On a smaller matter relate to transportation the Union Board took Independent action. It was decided that number cards would be placed on the windshields of buses to alleviate anxieties on the part of some students who seeing a bus go by without stopping begin worrying lest the bus that did not Stop was theirs and had left them behind. The question of Gas and Oil bids was tabled pending study of bids received and communication with Bennington school directors via the joint committee. Funeral Clarence v.
