San Diego County’s Assessed Value Up Six Percent San Diego County Assessor Ernie Dronenburg announced today that the 2014 assessed value of all taxable property has increased by 6% (or $24.6 billion) from last year. The property was valued as of January 1, 2014. This year’s total assessed value is $433.4 billion. After deducting tax exempt properties (charitable, homeowners, disabled, etc.) the Net Assessed Value is $417.4 billion. Based on a 1% tax rate it would produce approximately $4.17 billion in property taxes. “The majority of homeowners in San Diego County will only see an increased value of less than one half of one percent. Under Proposition 13 values cannot grow more than the California Consumer Price Index (CPI) or 2%, whichever is lower,” stated Dronenburg. “This year’s CPI factor was less than one half of one percent. There are over 575,000 (68%) residential properties in this Proposition 13 category in San Diego County,” he said. However Prop 13 does allow for some exceptions to the 2 percent growth limitation. Valuation growth is also permissible when there is a change in ownership or new construction. Additionally, properties that received value reductions in recent years because their current market value had fallen below their Proposition 13 values may see restorations in their assessments as market values continue to climb. “During the great recession my office provided temporary reductions on over 210,000 residential properties because their current market value was less than their Proposition 13 value.” said Dronenburg. “Each subsequent year we are required by State law to reevaluate continued on page 12

The Eagles football field got a much-needed facelift on Tuesday, June 24 with a donated $7,000 hydro-seeding by All Preferred Hydroseeding from Riverside. APH owner Jeffery Weaver spent a good deal of his younger years in Julian and was a classmate of assistant Coach Bert Regalado. The field will be “off-limits” to any activities for the next 6 weeks while the new seed sprouts and takes root. The field should be a thick and healthy green when the Eagles open their football season in late August. Your 2014 Eagles will be taking flight with their first practices of the season in late July. Athletic Director Tim White is working with APH to arrange a hydroseeding of the new Eagles Baseball field and the Eagles softball field at Julian Junior High.
Eagles Coach Bert Regalado supervised the hydroseeding of the Eagles football field Meanwhile the reconstruction of the E-1 building has proceeded without delay.
At the last Governing Board Meeting the directors authorized Superintendant Schlotman to oversee the final month of construction and the moving in of all classroom materials in preparation for the opening of the school year. Only minor adjustments have been made to the overall plan throughout the process. The construction area around the building has now been reduced to the interior, with the final landscaping currently being put in place. The new sprinkler system is installed and only planting remains out side. The final touches are being completed on the interior and should be completed by Registration Day -Tuesday, July 29, 2014(9:00 AM - 1:00 PM). And then first day of school is: Wednesday, August 6, 2014, regular School Day starting at 7:37 AM.
