A special meeting was held on Monday, August 8, 1977 in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room, Fifth Floor, New Courthouse, Tavares, Florida.  People present:  Mr. and Mrs. Clarence G. Shaw, Petitioners; Mr. Ed Havill, Property Appraiser; Mr. Edwin Waite, Special Master to the Property Appraisal Adjustment Board; Mr. Richard Hennings, Attorney to the Property Appraisal Adjustment Board; and Mrs. Jennifer Kennedy, Deputy Clerk.

The meeting convened at 1:30 p.m. with Mr. Hennings advising each side to present their case uninterrupted so that Mr. Waite could best gather his information and determine whether or not the assessment by the Property Appraiser is correct.

After considerable discussion, it was decided that Mr. Waite would make a field inspection of the property in question, along with some of the “comparables” submitted by Mr. and Mrs. Shaw and Mr. Havill.

Mr. Waite will submit his findings in writing to the Property Appraisal Adjustment Board no later than August 16, 1977.

All facts being presented, the meeting adjourned at 3:20 p.m.
