Two Companies In Oglesby Fighting Their Taxes

Posted by wlpo on January 31, 2012

While most property values seem to be going down, that’s apparently not the case for two companies in Oglesby.

The La Salle County Assessor’s Office has raised the assessed value of Bade-A-Minit and Wire Mesh by almost 400 thousand dollars more than they think they’re worth.  The companies are fighting the assessment at hearings February 10th in Ottawa.

Standing to lose money in the deal, the city of Oglesby is sending its legal counsel Jim Andreoni to the hearing.  Andreoni says the city could hire its own appraiser to look at the two companies but time is running out.

L-P High School and Oglesby Elementary Schools also plan to send representation to the hearings since they’re very interested parties.
