County tax hearing Friday

By Lyndsie Kiebert

Bonner County commissioners will hold a public hearing Friday to consider business property tax exemptions for four local businesses.

The four businesses set to be discussed are construction company IDAGON, metal fabrication company Mountain Metals, medical service landlord Sandpoint Properties, LLC and developer Ponderay Industrial Park, LLC. Each company has submitted a tax exemption application to the county, prompting the hearing.

According to county statute, the hearing is required in order for stakeholders and other members of the public to weigh in on the exemptions. In an official meeting notice, the BOCC said that feedback will be used “to further understand the ‘significant economic benefits’ that will accrue to Bonner County as a result of the qualifying plant investments.”

The hearing is scheduled for Friday, May 10 at 9 a.m. in the commissioners’ meeting room, located on the third floor of the Bonner County Administration Building at 1500 Highway 2, Sandpoint.

Those with questions can reach the BOCC office at 208-265-1438.
