Weimer Question: Is your intention to devalue these properties?
Willhauer Answer: Yes, absolutely, to taxpayer expectation, to the extent the law requires. No property should have an assessed value that exceeds what they could sell the property for.

Whatcom County to decide tonight (April 18th,2017) whether to extend this devaluation.
