The Maps No One Wants You To See, Revisited.

In June, 2008, I found a series of web articles and maps about Springfield, how property is assessed and how that information can be accessed.

I posted a link to the site and soon received a call from the SN-L's managing editor Cheryl Whitsitt telling me I had to remove the link to that site from my blog. The SN-L maintained that even though the material was posted on the web,they 'owned it' and if I didn't remove the links to it they would pursue legal action.

I removed it.

Today, in the SN-L, Wes Johnson has a story about the fee the assessor now charges to access public records.

Greene County Property Valuation and Assessment Map. This map contains data from 2007.
