To error is human… but county ought to pony up for assessor mistake | Letters

I was dismayed to read about the error our county assessor made in calculating the tax revenue due to Island Rec (Island Rec hit by tax $$ error,” Nov. 12, pg. 1).

I was further dismayed to read that the assessor feels Island Rec is liable for the overage. We teach our kids to take responsibility for their actions. So take responsibility, county of San Juan. You messed up. You pay the bill.
