R E S O L U T I O N BF IT RESOLVW,D ry the Board of Counter Commissioners of Jefferson County, Monta.re., that we onnose tl-e re(?i of the valua.tlon of the Public Utilities property in the State of Montana, and narticularl.y in Jefferson County, for the reasons, that, The State Board of Equa.li-7.ation (an annointed Board) reduced the valuations f -r the year 1959, of Public Utilities in the State of Montana.dapproximn.tely A25,000,000 for tax purposes. This means that the rest of the property owners must make up the loss. Jeffer:3011 County being* a counter rr;. =.? .�, r ,i( - l; ti es crossing, is excepi,ionally hard hit by this action. The valuations of utilities in Jefferson County were reduced apps.oxinatLdy 1 - ,000,000. The reason given by the State Board of Equalization for taking; this action was; that the counties were not assessing other property at high enough values. Jefferson Cd)unty has made adjustments and, increases in many classes of property, and hall have their Re- classification completed before the 1962 dead -Line date set by the 1957 legislature for reclassification. We, the Jefferson County Commissioners, believe that before any a.ctior was taken to reduce the valuations of the Utilities, a com ol..ete re- classification of the Utilities, as well as other prooert.v should have roen completed. Therefore, we condemn. and deplore the action of the State Board of Eaual..zation for reducing, Utilities Valuations and their threat to continue the reduction further for the -ext four .years. _ A, ir_ C h <� man _Member Attest: _ Clerk and Recorder ___ r\N . . ..... . .
