Prosecutor Denies Spencer’s Appeal

The Kootenai County prosecutor has determined a Spirit Lake resident can't appeal a property assessment on land he doesn't own, after analyzing Idaho statues and seeking other counties' advice. “It was definitely worth taking the time, because it's a question that needed to be answered, for the board (of commissioners) and for the public,” said Barry McHugh, county prosecuting attorney, who said he hasn't seen this situation come up before. Larry Spencer, a Spirit Lake developer and vocal community activist, applied to appeal an assessment on Silverwood Theme Park property this month in front of the Board of Equalization. He believes the park was wrongly granted a timber exemption on developed acreage, he said/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
