WANT PROPER APPRAISAL OF
STATE ST. SCHOOL PROPERTY
A plea asking the board of educa
tion to take steps to force a reason
able appraisal on school property
along State st. between Monroe and
Madison streets was contained in a
letter to Pres. Collins of the board
from the Northwest Side Com'l club.
In an executive session members
of the Commercial club, the most in
fluential organization of the North
Side, composed of small business
men, asked for an appraisal which
approaches that on privately-owned
lands near by.
The rent charged holders of school
leases is 6 per cent of the appraised
value. According to the leases held
by the State street corporations, the
appraisal is supposed to be on the
cash value of the land.
Three appraisers, Bertram Wins
ton, Simon Strauss and Jesse Hol
dom, set the appraisal far below the
real value of the land, the club
claims, because they took in consid
eration the war, the poor buildings
which occupy the school lands and
the existing business conditions.
This they had no right to do is the
idea expressed in the letter, and their
duty was to give an appraisal of the
true cash value of the land and base
The schools lose hundreds of
thousands annually by lower rents.
This is made up by small taxpayers.
The favored concerns on the west
side of State street, between Monroe
and Madison, because of the rents
much lower proportionately than
elsewhere in the city, are able to un
dersell the small outsider who pays
a just rent and taxes.
