Huron Resident Wants Turbines Considered In His Property Assessment

A Goderich Township residents says a hearing over his right to challenge his assessment that has gone on for about six years, could have been resolved much sooner.

Dave Hemmingway outlined his position Wednesday at a hearing in Clinton.

He said his main contentions include the fact that proximity to wind turbines was never considered in his assessment.

Hemmingway added he has recorded testimony that assessment officers were specifically told not to consider proximity to wind turbines.  He also contends that assessment officers did not have the proper training to do their jobs.

Hemmingway questioned the legality of much of the written material turned over by MPAC because there is no signature on it.  He also stated the chair of one board actually signed a document six months after she had left the board.

Following the Clinton hearing, Hemmingway said he doesn’t know when he’ll get a ruling.
