MINNEAPOLIS — “I encourage readers to look beyond the tone of the debate and look at the intent of the language of Measure 2.” Those are the words of Blake Crosby in a letter published in Agweek on April 16. Yes. I fully agree with Crosby’s statement.
VALLEY CITY, N.D. — In response to Dale Thorenson’s “Measure 2 is a wrong move” (Agweek, March 12). I note that Thorenson was hired by the Washington, D.C., lobbying group Gordley Associates directly after leaving the offices of Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D. “Keep It Local” brings out the big guns.
FARGO, N.D. — The North Dakota State Board of Equalization is giving county governments a bigger tolerance for figuring property valuations from their full values for 2012, allowing them “tolerances” to effectively cut tax values of farm and other property for tax purposes.
BISMARCK, N.D. — Average North Dakota farmland values, for purposes of taxation, have increased 29 percent. Property taxes on that land should not automatically be allowed to increase by the same amount, and that’s what will happen if local governments don’t reduce their level of taxation accordingly.
