CAUV Seminar at EHOVE
On Wednesday evening, June 24th, Erie County Auditor Rick Jeffrey, hosted a dual county (Huron and Erie) CAUV seminar to update agricultural property owners on the new State of Ohio farmland value increases. Both County Auditors shared their intent for increased public education, in hopes that this would allow the farming community to plan in advance for the increases they will see on their tax bills in January 2016. We have uploaded the Power Point presentation for anyone that was unable to attend the meeting, along with, a Frequently Asked Questions sheet.
