I have a draft streets.mn post I'd love someone to take a look at, if anyone is interested and has a little time.
It's about this (and some shortcomings in the underlying study): https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/03/opinion/sunday/property-taxes-housing-assessment-inequality.html
@lawremipsum When do you need it looked at by?
@densetsu Oh no huge rush. Today or tomorrow?
@lawremipsum Feel free to send it me! Will try to look either during noon or this evening.
@lawremipsum Not too much comment--makes me wish I was a little more schooled in these things! You make it sound digestible to this layperson!
@densetsu That's great to hear! I appreciate your taking the time and your feedback! :)
@lawremipsum Incidentally, when I opened the word doc the gif was working just fine. 🤷
@densetsu re: your question as to why the assessor seems to be doing better: it may be because they implemented the recommendations to be more statistically rigorous about property valuation already. I imagine they'd have a pretty good explanation about what happened and whether it could happen again...
