Mari Wilson, Humboldt County Assessor, is pleased to inform the public that the 2013-2014 assessment roll has been completed. The values are now available on the County website at http://www.co.humboldt.ca.us/assessor/assessment-inquiry.html. Assessments can be searched by parcel number, assessment number, or street address.

Here's the July 15, 2013 press release from the Assessor's office:

Humboldt County Assessor's office website header

2013-2014 ASSESSED VALUE NOTICES

Thanks to the work of the dedicated staff of the Assessor's Office, Mari Wilson, Humboldt County Assessor, is pleased to inform the public that the 2013-2014 assessment roll has been completed. The values are now available on the County website at http://www.co.humboldt.ca.us/assessor/assessment-inquiry.html. Assessments can be searched by parcel number, assessment number, or street address.

Since 2011 the Assessor's Office has been providing assessed value notices to owners of real and personal property via the county website. This has reduced the staff time and cost of printing and mailing. Changes in value might occur because the current real estate climate has reduced the market value of the property below its Proposition 13 factored base year value, ownership changes, new construction, construction in progress, business property assessments, and restricted value of property under the Williamson Act or TPZ.

Property owners without access to the county website can obtain a printed value notice by calling the Assessor's Office at 445-7663 or toll free (866) 240-0485 and requesting a notice be sent to them. Owners can also make written request to Assessor Mari Wilson, 825 5th Street, Room 300, Eureka, CA 95501 or come to that location to request a notice in person. This contact information can also be used for any questions you have regarding your assessed values.

In addition to value information the website offers maps, frequently used forms, and links to property tax information.

Place: Healy Senior Center, 456 Briceland Rd, Redway, CA
I. Call to Order: Meeting Ground Rules and Opening Comments from President
II. Roll Call: Suzanne Beers, President, Vice President, Member's Rep; Julia Minton, Treasurer, Members' Rep; Noel Soucy, Secretary, Programmers' Rep; Nella White, Members' Rep; Jordan Jumpshot, Programmers' Rep; Antonia Lamb, board-elected; Marcy Stein, Programmers' Rep; ex officio member: Jeanette Todd, Station Manager.

Also Present: Jama Chaplin, Rohn Jennings, Jack Frybulous
III. Approval of Minutes: (March) Approved with several additions. Six votes in favor and one abstaining (Noel).
IV. Approval of Agenda Julia moves to approve the Agenda with additions. Marcy seconds. Approved unanimously.
V. Open Time: Speakers will be assigned an amount of time not to exceed 5 minutes
Jama Chaplin- Two points she would like to make. She hopes that eventually we will be able to use the Music Server discs to permanently archive some of the shows. Every once in awhile there are shows that want to be kept forever. Mostly talk shows need to be archived forever. Bylaws- the Board must assure equal access to the airwaves. Maybe it means policy, or communicating with management. We need more young people on the air. There are some programmers that have an awful lot of hours out of the month. She doesn't know why we wouldn't want to freshen things up and get some of the back log of people that applied for shows at least into the rotation.

Rohn Jennings- Very concerned about the survival of KMUD. He is concerned that the direction of KMUD may have taken a turn that is not sustainable. He thinks that we shouldn't be serving Eureka, and we need to focus on Southern Humboldt. Our support has always been in Southern Humboldt. He believes our transmitter up north was never paid for by the people up north. He would like us to focus more on Southern Humboldt. He wants to see us sell the transmitter up north to an organization that would be interested in buying it. KMUD has grown into an unwieldy organization. A board meeting should not last more than 90 minutes. Management should be carrying out the directives of the Board. Small is beautiful. Its one of the reasons that a lot of us moved here. Its what created KMUD. It's a natural tendency for organizations to want to get bigger. But we need to focus.

Jack Frybulous- DJ for 5 years, lived here for 8 years. Two items- He noticed on the first page of the packet his real name, and he wants to respectfully ask us to use his dj name instead of his real name if possible. The signal in Southern Humboldt has been degrading, it is much inferior to what it once was. This is for an analog radio.
