    Film Review: Boring and Predictable, The Snowman Melts on Contact

Around 1:20am Thursday morning, I woke up to noise in the alley between Gresham and Elbridge. Sounded like trash cans being dragged and knocked over. Heard it repeat several times and then stop. This morning, I saw at least 4 garbage cans on their side. I imagine there were more that had been picked up already. My first thought is punk kids, but that seems a little late for just jerk kids' behavior. My second thought was someone was trying to see into backyards or gauge a response to alley noise. Anyone else see or hear anything? I didn't call 911 because i felt silly calling about trash cans being knocked over, but I'm feeling a little on edge after hearing gun shots a couple weeks ago, seeing more gang graffiti and the gang related murder on our block last week. Maybe I should call it in next time...

New construction taxes

Can’t seem to find this answer anywhere. New construction taxes are based on the land value. At what point do they become reassessed that a house has been built?

Is it when the house is done? Or is it when the house is sold/occupied.
Everything I find just talks about the new tax bill, but I’m looking for when the city considers it is a house and not land.

  • The Assessor is supposed to monitor new construction permits and update the assessment file accordingly. These projects are not picked up automatically during the triennial reassessment, since the triennial will reassess every property in the City. The assessor does not drive by every property in the City every three years.

  • The case that I cited was one of two houses that were built by the same developer at the same time. The other house was reclassified within three years. No explanation as to why they weren't both reclassified (except clout).

Not a courteous dog owner

I walked by this today in front of the church at Byron and Whipple. They have signs out asking pet owners to pick up their dog waste.

This "courteous" neighbor left this on the sidewalk no less than 20 feet from a sign.

  • So... you photographed dos poop for the internet so we could all see it? I suppose that's only fair.
