Recently, Mann presented the Carroll County Board of Supervisors the assessed personal and real property values, as is required each July. This year, property in the county was valued at $79,546,184, up $532,656 from last year’s $79,014,128.
Mann said although the numbers are up, public utilities rolls have dropped over the last few years. The county has not yet received the public utility rolls from the state.
“In the past several years, the public utility rolls have gone down,” Mann said.
Real property values, according to Mann, are up over $11 million due to the state-wide use value on cultivatable and non-cultivatable lands. Mann said timber land usage increased this year, and values increased as a result. The year’s real property recap was valued at $422,101,501, compared to last year’s value of $410,464,400.
Hearings will be set for next month in both Vaiden and Carrollton. Following the hearing, the Carroll County Board of Supervisors will give the final approval.
