Judge sides with ranchers on tax beef
Assessor labels court's ruling a 'compromise decision'

County Assessor Pam Pearsall:  “It’s a shame we had to go through this process, but we had no choice being the defendant in this lawsuit. And had we not, the County and its citizens would have faced a loss of $60,000, in the first year alone, based on their demand of $3.54 per acre. I believe an increase was appropriate and the court agreed. We want to make sure that everyone pays their fair share – nothing more, nothing less.”
