    Property Tax Assessments

    Huntsville Resident Laurel Parkinson has made arrangements with a local appraiser to conduct drive-by appraisals of Valley residences for a substantially discounted price of $100.  The normal price is about $300.

    You may contact the appraiser directly at:

    Davis Strong  (801) 631-6449

    or contact Laurel at (801) 791-1113

    You may also wish to contact the Weber Board of Realtors at (801) 476-4216
    They will refer you to local realtors who have offered to conduct a Certified Market Analysis (CMA) of your property free of charge.

    You may wish to have both an appraisal and CMA, then use whichever will provide the greatest tax benefit (lowest property value).

    Thanks to Davis and Laurel for their generosity.

    Property Tax Petitions

    The petitions to have our values reassessed are available at  Our sincere thanks goes out to Huntsville Resident D-Bell who has spent countless hours researching local tax inequities and has forwarded his findings for the benefit of all Valley residents.  His findings are posted at

    Also, thanks to Huntsville residents Carol Conway, Kathy Thompson, and Nicole Kinnear who have canvassed much of the town giving those without internet access the ability to sign the petition. 

    That’s all for now, have a great week.
