Appellant's Statement of the Issues:|
I.Whether the Grand Forks Board of County Commissioners erroneously affirmed the City's denial of the Grand Forks Housing Authority's application for tax abatements for 2006 and 2007 because it did not find substantial evidence to support an agreement existed between the City and the Grand Forks Housing Authority to make payments in lieu of taxes.
II.Whether the Grand Forks Board of County Commissioners erroneously interpreted North Dakota statutory law by denying the Grand Forks Housing Authority's request for tax abatements for 2006 and 2007, as it determined that the taxes paid were paid as a voluntary payment in lieu of taxes.
III.Whether the district court should have ordered that the case be remanded to allow for the Grand Forks Board of County Commissioners to review the transcripts of the hearings before the City of Grand Forks which were not made a part of the record as approved by the City Board's motion.
Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
1. Whether the Grand Forks County Board of Commissioners acted in an arbitrary, capricious or unreasonable manner by denying the Grand Forks Housing Authority's request for abatement for 2006 and 2007.
2. Whether the Grand Forks County Board of Commissioners applied the appropriate statutes when making its decisions to deny abatement.
3. Whether remand to the Grand Forks County Board of Commissioners to consider additional evidence is required when such evidence was never offered to the Grand Forks County Commission by the Grand Forks Housing Authority.
