The Starke County Commissioners are seeking candidates to fill a vacancy on property tax assessment board of appeals. Republican member Ed Hasnerl resigned, so the appointee will fill his term through the end of the year.
A background in real estate is preferred but not required. Republican Ron Simoni and Democrat Rebecca Ferch are the other two board members. State law requires the body to have a mix of Democrats and Republicans. Since there is one of each, there is no party affiliation requirement for this appointment. Political party affiliation is determined by how a person voted in the last primary election.
Interested applicants can submit letters of intent to the Starke County Auditor’s Office by 4 p.m. on Friday, April 28. The address is 53 East Mound Street, Knox, IN 46534 and the telephone number is 574-772-9101.
