County’s valuation rises by $10 million

Commissioners hope the increased valuation will allow them to lower the mill levy. However, the increased inflation will mean county departments may need to tighten their budgets.

Allen County received a bit of good news before officials start sizing up next year’s budget.

County Clerk Sherrie Riebel told commissioners Tuesday the county’s assessed valuation projects to increase about $10 million this year to $153 million — perhaps the largest single-year increase in county history.

Higher property values would translate to a lower mill levy, provided commissioners keep their pledge to keep spending level in 2023.
