The Grand County School District will host a “truth in taxation” public hearing Tuesday, Aug. 7 at 6 p.m. regarding the proposal to increase its property tax revenue. Citizens are invited to express their concerns. The event will be held at the Grand County School District board room located at 264 South 400 East.

Taxpayers will be hit with varying changes depending on where they live, whether they are home or commercial property owners, and whether their property has increased in value. Valuation notices sent out on July 22 show the rate of taxation both without the school district’s budget increase and with it. According to Grand County Treasurer Chris Kauffman, most residents can expect to see an overall decrease in their taxes from last year, since more of the burden is being shifted to commercial properties.
