KXAN Austin ran a story on the Travis Central Appraisal District last night. You can watch (or read) the story here.
The part I found most interesting was about the nepotism KXAN uncovered. As it turns out, two members of the Appraisal District’s Board of Directors had relatives serving on the Appraisal Review Board (ARB). The ARB is supposed to be neutral, but it is a bit difficult to do that when you share a home address with a member of one side of the argument. I’m not posting excerpts here for copyright reasons, so take a look for yourself.
