50 YEARS AGO: It was reported that Stanislaus County property owners, who objected to their 1967 assessed valuations on their land, would begin protest appearances before the Board of Supervisors. Supervisors would sit as a Board of Equalization to hear the protests over two days. Additional hearings would be planned if protestors did not meet a 5 p.m. deadline. Residents were upset by the Board of Equalization as the figures showed an average of 5.46 percent increase in Stanislaus County assessed valuations from 1966 to 1967. The numbers were the eighth lowest among California’s 58 counties.
