A resolution calling the Metropolitan Board of Equalization in special session beginning August 1, 1999 until the Board has heard appeals on pro-rated assessments and completed unfinished business from their regular session.

Whereas, The Metropolitan Board of Equalization needs to meet in special session beginning August 1, 1999 until the Board has heard appeals on pro-rated assessments and completed unfinished business from their regular session in June 1999; and
