Proposition K -- If the County had or would spend the money to update computer software that helps with the county appraisals then the values they assess on properties would be more accurate. The County needs to be able to hire more appraisers. I believe there are 30 appraisers to handle all of Butler County.  People to need to pay attention to the State wanting to set all of our property values to raise 2 percent  a  year increase. Depending on your location, your value might have gone down. Economic downturn effects property values tremendously! Isn't it funny how the State wants to propose this in today's economic times? Does it not insure they still get their money?  It is a fact with property values declining, the State and County are worried about tax dollars.
