7:26 am
>> thank you supervisor cowen, supervisor avalos. >> thank you supervisor president breed i'd like to occur or concur with the comments of supervisor peskin we don't have a clear status how we had an appraisal is different standard for how we treat the properties by the city ver's th citizens want to use for instance, i have a resident that has been negotiating to pretty much land that the city will never use and gotten the highest appraisal and decided after years of negotiation not purchasing the property it didn't do anyone any good to make the improvements on the land is a huge benefit for the neighborhood by in this case we're going an appraisal that is not the best deal so i think in
