Afton tax rates slammed at appeals hearing
"Don't tax us out of town."
That was the plea from commercial property owners in Afton at the city's Board of Appeals and Equalization hearing on April 15.
James Gasperini, representing Afton Market Square, the Little Red House and Baglio's, addressed the board on the subject of 2009 taxable values on the three buildings.
"At the Market Square, one [lot] increased [in value] by $213,900, and another by 50 percent," he explained.
