PETA BOA Board to Meet June 25

The Starke County PETA BOA Board has scheduled an organizational meeting on June 25, and they expect to hear a number of appeals regarding assessments that the board has set on real estate. The meeting will start at 9 a.m., and each appeal will be given roughly an hour to be discussed.

While the board expects to hear anywhere from five to eight appeals at the meeting, Starke County Assessor Rhonda Milner says they don’t necessarily make a decision immediately. She says that in some instances, the board may need to review documents and send the taxpayer paperwork afterward with their decision on the appeal.

In some cases, an inspection must be completed before the board can make their decision, but Milner says that the decision is usually made within a month.
