1. A special franchise assessment may be reviewed so far as practicable in the manner prescribed by this article for reviewing an assessment of real property.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this article to the contrary, an assessing unit may commence a proceeding under this section on the ground that the value of the property, prior to the application of the equalization rate pursuant to section six hundred six of this chapter, is insufficient.  This proceeding shall be consolidated with any other proceeding commenced under this section by the owner of the special franchise.
