How can Phil Foreman not recuse himself on making any determinations on what Galvan/Galloway reductions or exceptions from paying property Taxes are? This I thought was settled and obvious with Historic Preservation Commission.ReplyDelete
Mr. Foreman is not alone in this, nor are Galvan properties. Conflict of interest are conflicts of interests and I thought progress had been made, in HPC, Planning board, Zoning board,
Assessors board etc. Knowing when to recuse yourself, is not difficult.
I don't see the conflict myself between serving on the HPC (which does not deal with taxes or assessments) and serving on a board which determines whether or not the assessments made by the city assessor are "fair."ReplyDelete
Whether or not a property is partially or wholly exempt from taxes is a legal determination about status, so it is odd to me that the Board of Assessment Review is involved with that, but I guess the idea is that the BAR serves as a way station to going to court, much like the ZBA does when it makes a decision, particularly a decision involving an interpretation of law.
Mr Dunn,I am sorry but this has nothing to with what you posted above.ReplyDelete

Then I am confused as to exactly where you see a conflict of interest here, that dictates that Mr. Foreman should recuse himself with respect to any Galvan related matters.ReplyDelete
I believe the poster may be referring to the fact that it appears the wife of a member of the BAR received a not-inconsiderable grant from Galvan a while back.ReplyDelete
