COEUR d'ALENE - One owns the restaurants, resort and myriad other buildings containing thousands of employees.
The next two keep your air conditioner rumbling and appliances humming.
But that's not all Duane B. Hagadone and your electric and gas companies are up to.
They also pay the area's highest property taxes.
According to Kootenai County tax records, Hagadone is the No. 1 property taxpayer in Kootenai County. Utilities like Avista, Rathdrum Power and Gas Transmission Company also have some of the highest bills.
While this Top 10 list is impressive, it isn't necessarily comprehensive. Because several private property owners do business or own property under a number of names, their total property tax bill for 2010 might be greater than listed in this story. Full story. Alecia Warren, Cda Press
Any sympathy for Duane and the utility companies?
