Tax valuation protest schedule approved
McCOOK, Neb. — Red Willow County commissioners this morning approved the schedule of tax valuation protest hearings with owners of agriculture land and commercial and residential properties.
Property owners have until June 30 to file a protest in the clerk's office.
Commercial properties have been reappraised for the first time since 2009, and the county hired an outside professional appraiser, Stanard Appraisal Service of Lincoln, to assess commercial properties in the county. State law requires the county to set commercial values at 92-100 percent of market value.
The hearings are in the commissioners' room on the third floor of the courthouse at 501 Norris Avenue in McCook.
Property owners will be notified of their hearing times.
At their meeting this morning, commissioners set aside these dates and times for hearings: Monday, July 10, 1-4 p.m.; and Tuesday, July 11, Wednesday, July 12, Thursday, July 13, and Friday, July 14, 8:30-noon and 1-4 p.m.; Wed., July 12, 8:30 a.m.-noon, 1-4 p.m.
Monday, July 17, 1-4 p.m.; and Tuesday, July 18, Wednesday, July 19, and Thursday, July 20, 8:30 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m.
Also during their meeting, commissioners and roads superintendent Gary Dicenta agreed that property owner Bill Mathies should attend a board meeting to discuss his concerns with the road ditches on the county road near his house at Roads 711 and 384.
