Eric Kleven was present at the meeting to explain his two contract options. One is for a maintenance year and the other is for a total revaluation year. The last revaluation year was in 2005 and we need to do at least a limited revaluation soon to stay in compliance (and to improve the accuracy/fairness of the values). We are at 72% compliance presently. Lamoine Hanson made a motion that we contract with Kleven to do a limited revaluation in 2012 and 2013 would be a maintenance year, seconded by Bob Rindahl. Motion carried.
