ABATEMENT HEARING

 

           

The Board of County Commissioners met at 2:00 p.m. for an Abatement Hearing regarding Anheuser-Busch.  Chair Donnelly presided and Commissioner Johnson was present. Also present were: Steve Miller, Christine Murray, Patty Ring, and Jon Cowling, Assessor’s Office; Deni LaRue, Commissioners’ Office; Alan Po, Council for Anheuser-Busch, Inc., and Gael Cookman, Deputy Clerk.

 

1.  PETITION FOR ABATEMENT ANHEUSER-BUSCH, INC, PARCEL NUMBER 8833006001:    Ms. Murray explained that salient facts of the property, noting that the total value by the cost approach resulted in an appraised value of $119,401,600, which was reconciled to $91,798,000.  Ms. Murray stated that there were no other sales across the nation for breweries of this size during the time frame.

 

Mr. Po stated that he has a more current appraisal that does not apply to this timeframe, so he did not present it as evidence.  However, he did present one page from the appraisal that outlined an industrial sale report from a Coors Brewery in Memphis, Tennessee, which he used as a comparable and it reflected a sales price of $6,000,000. 

 

Much discussion ensued.  The Board stated that without more data from the petitioner, they could support a lower value.

Commissioner Johnson moved that the Board of County Commissioners deny the Petition for Abatement for Anheuser-Busch, Inc., regarding parcel number 88330-06-001, for the 2008 tax year, and uphold the assessed value of $91,798,000.
