Perry Twp Constable getting over on us?

Ok, here is a link to see what 2006 assessments are.
His address is 163 W Thompson Rd. He has this enourmous garage that was built in 05. Prior to that being built he added on to the house. I wonder if he pulled permits. I looked on the County's website and it showed no permits ever being pulled for his home. His house has new siding and is landscaped very nice. I do not know his sq ft but I believe he has a 3br home w/ a dinning room. My home is a 2br, 1ba, living room, kithcen, and NO dinning room. The sq ft of my home is 765 and the basement which isn't finished is 765. I have the OLD aluminum siding and until this past March I had little landscaping. I have a tiny one car garage and there isn't anything special about my property. If you were to look at both properties you would consider his much nicer than mine and most in the neighborhood. The home on the east side of him is no where near as nice but it has a 2 car garge and I would assume close to the same sq ft but his assessed value is still lower. To my knowledge he has lived here for a long time.
When the new tax assessments came out I looked up his and he only went up $5k to $67k. My assessment went up $12k to $74k. BULLCRAP!!!! His house should have hit atleast (at least) $85K in opinion. I know the housing market and I would consider myself knowledgeable enough to know what a home is worth. I buy homes, live in them for a while why I fix them up and sell them. He has to have some hand in what his property value is.
Also, something else to look into. If our tax $ purchased his BRAND NEW Police Packedge Dodge Charger. If our tax money didn't pay for it then our tax money has at least paid for the plates. He has official police plates on the car. I tried asking around about this and was told all constables must provide their own cars but the twp will plate them for them. If that is the case then you can bet he avoided sales tax which would have been $1800 and up. Chargers are about $30k + for that trim package.
Oh, one more thing..........I would LOVE to know what these elected officials make. I was told by a few retired officers that they make $100K + for part time work

Back from the brink , huh.

You might want to look into the new quota system for tickets at IMPD. 2 per month. That is not many I know. However, I will get disipline if I don't write them. So..... What happens when they ask for 2 a day? Nice form of taxation. Nice leadership style for IMPD. Quotas are a bad thing. Just google ticket quota and you will see. This will not be good.

Here's exactly what I would do, write those two tickets to the well healed folks who never pay attention to the laws of the simple folks like us. You know, those folks who have the tickets sort of just "go away" or vanish. Then when they come down on you for this not showing up, file a law suit.

THAT would be interesting, I could think of several cars down around the CCC building with obvious offenses just waiting for that UTT.

This is precisely what this mess of a property tax system has brought-unfair and unequal assessments that also can be manipulated. Plus it has pitted us against each other looking up neighbors assessments to compare the uncomparable because this system has no clear rules.At the very least assessors offices should be looked at- who has paid, who hasn't,who pushed a favor button saying paid etc. This system is loved by government because they can get away with so much. How about some people stepping up with that info on the q.t.

Perry constables have a lot of police look-alike vehicles illegally equipped with flashing red & blue lights and sirens.

IMPD was called on a group of them acting as thugs near 38/Meridian recently....
