The Very Definition of Uniform and Equal

Here's a little tidbit I discovered this morning.
The house on the left is now assessed for $141,000. The house on the right is assessed at $146,000.
I realize that it's difficult to see any real details so I'll give some background.
The $141,000 house is the home of an highly educated professional and his family. It has been completely rehabbed and is in very good condition. It also has a separate apartment that is rented out.
The $146,000 is empty and is in a general state of disrepair. It is currently undergoing renovation, but progress is very slow. It has been in this condition since before 2004.
Looks like the taxpayers of Marion Co. really got their monies worth in the reassessment.
