Back in this post I mentioned we were filing for a re-assessment of the property taxes, as we thought they were assessed to high. Well on Friday we finally got a letter from the board and they have dropped our assessed value of the house by $80,000. What that translates to is about an $18 a month decrease in our taxes. Now that may not seem like a lot its a heck of a lot better than it was. It also means that by 2012 instead of paying well over $425 a month, we should be only paying around $375. So it was well worth doing. We still have to sign the paperwork and mail it in. Now our township can fight this, but fingers crossed they don't.
Also we got our hydro bill in this week and it was just over $30. We had been over billed on the prior two billings, and this was an actual reading. Anyhow, when I called them to talk to them, the guy suggested I use the call in feature and I can call them with a meter reading every month to get a correct bill each month. He gave me the dates to call for the rest of the year, and I wrote that down on the calendar. Its a digital meter so it is easy to read.
Friday was spent cleaning house and doing some tidying up. I love it when the house looks tidy. I was supposed to do some more work on fireplace, but ended up not feeling good. I ended up having a horrible headache, probably a migraine. No idea what brought that on, but it knocked me for six. We ended up with rain so maybe it was a barometric pressure headache? As I am writing this I'm still not feeling good, so that's why it is such a short post, sorry!
