This letter may be sent at anytime during the year but must be in the BMID office by November 15th. The Board of Equalization meets once a year at 5 p.m. on the first Wednesday in December. The Board is scheduled to meet again on Wednesday, December 6, 2017.

Board of Equalization Policy

Any requests for Adjustment of Irrigable Acreages will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:

  • No adjustment will be made on areas of less than ¼ acre.

  • Adjustment based upon slope requires a slope greater than 45%.

  • Adjustment based upon land type e.g. too rocky will be evaluated with respect to the land being unsuitable for grazing or for any crop.

  • Any land previously equalized out of the District, which is later irrigated without advance permission from the District, will be subject to retroactive assessments to the time of equalization and all applicable penalties.

Noted as part of the minutes of the regular board meeting held on February 7, 2001.
