I didn't realize that the Statesman was publishing tax assessment information about our new homes. And quite frankly I don't think it was appropriate.
The information in there is merely records obtained from the county assessor's office and not the "cost of construction" (at least in our case).
I'm really not sure what is useful or newsworthy about that information. And while I understand that it is publicly available information, I think it was in poor taste to publish it, especially since we weren't told it would be in there, and I feel like we have been more than cooperative with them about information.
