06/09/2010: "Assessor Seeks Re-election"


ig_Charles_Zalmanek-001 (31k image)Charles Zalmanek announced that he has filed for re-election to the office of San Juan County Assessor. Zalmanek was elected in 2006 to take over the position from long time Assessor Paul Dossett, who retired.

Zalmanek and his staff are in the final stages of replacing the Assessor’s Office’s 27 year old computer system, funded almost entirely with State grant monies. “This was the first step in moving the office toward implementation of annual adjustments to assessed values.”

The next step will be to implement statistical software for analyzing changes in the real estate market. Once the County Assessor’s Office implements the annual revaluation program, properties will be inspected and appraised every four to six years, and adjusted each interim year using statistical trends.

“When property values fall, taxpayers want their assessed values to reflect that fallen market. It’s hard enough to see part of your investment value drop, but to continue to pay taxes on a higher value just doesn’t seem fair,” Zalmanek said.
“I hope that the voters of San Juan County will allow me to serve another four years and to continue to implement important changes in the assessment process,” he stated.
Zalmanek has been employed in the Assessor’s Office for 17 years.
