Council Apposes Appraisal District Budget Proposal

On Monday the City Council unanimously passed a resolution expressing opposition to the Lubbock Central Appraisal District's fiscal year 2005 budget.

In the past, council has asked the Appraisal District to provide information on how they plan to improve customer service and better the appraisal process. They say that information has not been made available and that's why they are objecting to a budget increase for the appraisal district. Councilman Tom Martin says, "It's to show our displeasure with the continued poor operation of the county apprasial district and the way its run, or not run properly."

Councilman Martin expects the appraisal district's budget will eventually pass because other taxing entities will not show opposition.
