County Finance Committee chairman says most county tax assessors haven’t been doing their jobs

The chairman of the LaSalle County Board Finance Committee claims most of the county’s 37 township assessors haven’t been doing their jobs. Every four years, they’re supposed to visit every piece of real estate for updated assessments. Brian Dose of Ottawa says they haven’t. The county has to correct for under-assessments with a multiplier.

Dose says it’s one more of the struggles the county has with money now.

WCMY News has asked the LaSalle County Assessor’s Office for comment on this. We haven’t received a reply.
