Years ago, my city assessed property owners for street repair/ overlay for streets adjacent to their
property. It was something like a couple of hundred dollars, not $11,000. A group of property owners got
together and contested the assessment for the street repair on the grounds that the property owners were
not the exclusive users of the street adjacent to their property, therefore street repair cost should be
paid by the community/ city, parish, state or the feds. They either set case law or used case law, I
don?t recall which.
?Problem is we are getting a new road at the property.?
BTW When roads/ highways take your property they are supposed to pay you!
I think I would/ you should join or start a group to contest the assessment and have someone research
case law, Pronto!
Good luck with it.
