#SB447 was signed into law earlier this summer, and authorizes two or more counties to create Assessment Appeals Boards to hear taxpayer appeals. This summer, we asked our followers to submit photos of California's beautiful rural counties for the 2017 Rural County Photo Contest.  We received more than 100 images from people throughout the state, visually displaying what makes their communities great places to live, work, and play!! From wildflowers to jaw-dropping sunsets, the beautiful images amazed us - and the judges.  Thank you to everyone who participated this year - you helped make this photo contest a success!! CONGRATULATIONS TO HUMBOLDT COUNTY'S MIRANDA MOORE!! WINNER of RCRC's Rural County Photo Contest
