No protestors were present and no appeals were filed during the city of Hillsboro’s annual tax equalization hearing, which took place as part of Monday night’s city commission meeting.

Joining the online meeting, assessors Janet Meyer and Mel Carlson presented their reports regarding residential and commercial assessment changes.

Meyer noted that 37 notices were mailed out to property owners whose property values increased by 10 percent or more, or $3,000 or more.

She added that “most” properties saw 3 percent increases with changes driven by sales.

Carlson reported that he mailed eight notices for commercial properties.

He noted one change – adding Sanford’s assisted-living complex, known as Comstock Corner, to the tax roles at a value of $511,600.

The facility previously had been tax exempt with the adjacent hospital, nursing home and clinic.

Carlson said he had spoken with the facility’s administrator and there was no objection to the change.
