In evaluating past and current conditions in the Chippewa Subdistrict,
it was determined that due to inflation, and increased costs for
maintaining and repairing the flood control system, revised appraisals
needed to be made.
Without additional revenue, the Subdistrict would not be able
to provide adequate short-term maintenance of the flood control
system and also ensure long-term viability.
It was determined that it was most equitable for all properties
lying within the boundaries of the Subdistrict to contribute to
the maintenance costs, since all properties benefit.
The revised appraisals distinguish between those properties that
benefit both directly and indirectly, and those that benefit
The original methods used in determining the appraisal for the
directly benefited properties in the original appraisal record
was found to remain valid and appropriate, although the original,
unadjusted benefits for those who indirectly benefit were found
to be grossly underestimated relative to current economic conditions.
A separate inflationary adjustment to these original appraisals
was determined to be the most reasonable and appropriate means
of correction to the original appraisal record. This was coupled
with an indirect benefit appraisal applicable to all properties
within the Chippewa Subdistrict.
