Year-to-date protests for the Uvalde County Appraisal District were reported to be close to 1,200 at the regular board meeting of the district’s board of directors held Tuesday evening. Protests from previous years exceeded 1,600.
“This year turned out to be lower than expected,” said chief appraiser Roberto Valdez.
Board chairman Blaine Bennet commended Valdez for his openness and frequent communication with the community.
“Maybe one reason our protests are down,” he said, “is that we’re doing a little bit better job of letting people know what’s going on, what everything’s about.”
As of July 13, 605 protest cases were still scheduled for a hearing; 564 protests had been closed.
