Property assessments in Lake Geneva are beyond obscene and ridic

given the fact that home values go down on a daily basis and have been doing so for at least three years. I just sold my house for less than $145,000 - the appraiser I hired said it was only worth $132,000 - the city says it is worth nearly $180,000. I'd like to see them try to sell it for that. The middle class homeowners in Walworth County don't stand a chance. They must sell their houses for far less than they paid or stay put and pay ridiculous, super inflated property taxes. It's a lose, lose situation for everyone but our city and county governments.
