Burke Mountain attorney appeals determined value of resort
BURKE, Vt. (AP) - An attorney for the Burke Mountain ski resort is appealing a decision to uphold the market value of the resort at $18.7 million.
The Caledonian Record reports that William Roger Prescott, an attorney with Downs Rachlin Martin, wrote to town officials recently contesting the ruling by the town assessor.
Prescott is seeking a hearing before the Burke Board of Civil Authority.
The ski resort, whose former owner was charged with fraud, remains in the hands of a federally appointed receiver until it is sold to new owners.
The resort’s value was contested earlier this year but upheld by the assessor.
