As your advocate, I met again yesterday with County Administrator Kevin Gray. He graciously provided me a thorough update related to his efforts to evaluate the assessed property values being determined by the County Assessor Office. This Duluth News Tribune article illustrates much of what Kevin shared with me.
I am concurrently hearing from our members who are indicating that their assessed property values have been reevaluated and subsequently lowered by the Assessor Office. It appears as if our collective voice has been heard by the County’s decision makers.
I commend St. Louis County’s leadership for their quick, decisive and corrective action. It is a positive example of a local governmental entity listening to a concern expressed by our business community.
