9.D. Application for limitation on appraised value of property for school district maintenance and operations taxes from IP Lumina II LLC.
Description:  Our attorney notified the district on Friday morning that the Comptroller has determined that both the Application and the Certificate (Comptroller’s approval of the application) are deemed to be deficient by the Comptroller’s office.  The deficiency has to do with the schedule of values submitted on the initial application, and requires an amendment.  Since the application has been approved by the Comptroller’s office, there is no ability to amend the current application, and a new application will be required.  The Applicant has been asked by the Comptroller to withdraw the current application and submit a new application for this project.  The new application will be submitted to the board for approval at te board meeting. We were at the final negotiation stages of preparing an agreement for the Board to review, and this new guidance will require the project to start from the beginning of the process.  The Comptroller has assured the parties that the new application will be handled expeditiously.
