Question of the Day — Local Property Values

Issue: Property values going up, up, up: (40%) increase represents third straight year of record-setting valuation changes/Marc Stewart, Coeur d’Alene Press

DFO: When I saw the headline this week that property values had gone up 16 or 18 percent in Spokane County, I sniffed and said: That ain’t nothing. But I wasn’t expecting an average of 40 percent in Kootenai County. Good grief! At this rate, we’ll all be selling out and moving to Owyhee County, Idaho, to get a break from property taxes.

Question: Should North Idaho legislators demand that Risch calls a special session to hammer out tax relief … on Monday or Tuesday?
