Dear Commission, We have a problem in our precinct that involves a private citizen charging people for helicopter rides next to the Oasis restaurant and our neighborhood. I would like to discuss this with you and see what we can do to stop it immediately.

Dear Ms. Shea,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts in today’s American Statesman on the property tax crisis in Travis County. I own a home but no commercial property in Travis County. I agree with you that property appraisals should be accurate. Please help me understand how raising the valuation on certain properties will lead to a reduction in the valuation of other commercial and residential properties. Are you suggesting that the Travis County Appraisal District has systematically overvalued some properties because others are perceived to be undervalued? Are you suggesting that the overall value of the tax roll in Travis County has been greatly diminished by the possible inaccurate valuation of some properties thus leading to a need to maintain or increase tax rates in Travis County? As you know elected officials can alleviate this crisis through their rating setting authority. If the problem of undervaluation is corrected, are you committed to lowering tax rates to lower the tax burden on home owners in Travis County? I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Paul J. Roach

Way to go Brigid- Your work to investigate the property tax appraisal process is really getting conversation going. Several people in my differing communities have brought up the issue in the last couple weeks and I just listened as they worked out in their heads “now which candidate is that that’s leading that charge?…” and I just fill in the blank if they can’t come up with your name. Very exciting. GREAT WORK. People are in agreement that it is a very critical issue that so many long-time Austinites are facing- being displaced from a community (and school systems) they’ve helped grow for so long. A good friend told me her 70 year old neighbor is telling her she may have to leave the house she’s lived in for decades. If you need a case-study, let me know! Deep gratitude and respect for everything you are doing.

Brigid, I have a very concrete example of the travis county central appraisal district appraising residential land at 3 to 4 times nearby and equivalent size commercial property. ( ie. residental lots at $320,000 but commercial at $100,000 or less) Please give me a call and if you are interested in the details, i’ll email you the details or contact a statesman reporter that you suggest.

GRMs, Gross Rent Multipliers, for each neighborhood, is the way to distinguish income producing, rental properties from SFR/Homestead properties. TCAD used to use GRMs. We should go back to that.

Thanks for the call. Brig, there are some things that are important to do. One,i personally worked my heart out to get Austin out of STNPI guess telling the citizens that 16% of our energy com from some bland oil. Why were we not told that we have been suckling at those concrete teats??? And o find, there are now 2 more concrete teats! If it looked so good biz-wise WHY HAVEN’T WE SOLD IT!!!!! How many spent fuel rods are piling up down at the ocean.


1 other major cold case the people truly were wearded out by.


Can you quess?


Hint: WE WILL NOT FORGET. X 4


And the answer IS: 4teen girls brutilized, robbed, raped, shot, piled up, and burned up. Unspeakable! But Rosemary lemberg, DWI dropped “yogurt shop murders”

That case is in deeep freeze at APD. I cannot get anyone to call

Lastly, i am Eliza thomas’mother dear friend & Won’t forget!

Good morning, spoke to Brigid, she asked me to schedule a meeting request here to talk about how my partner and I can contribute to Restore Rundberg. Thank you! Robert Skinner and Kevin Condron. (512) 949-9501. We would also love to be in contact with anyone else we should know for our ultimate goal of sourcing and contributing a home in the Rundberg area.
