Starke County Commissioners Award Cyclical Assessment Contract

starke-county-courthouseOwners of property in Starke County will now have the value reassessed every four years.

Assessor Rhonda Milner told the county commissioners the state has ordered a new timeline for the process in order to more accurately track market trends. She says 25 percent of parcels in the county will be assessed each year rather than trying to squeeze everything into two years. That will put the county on a more normal schedule.

The commissioners previously took four bids for assessment services under advisement. They awarded the contract to the low bidder, Accurate Assessment. They performed the county’s most recent property assessment. Milner says the cost for the four-year process is comparable to what the county was paying for data two years at a time.
