County assessors monitored by state in setting values
The 2014 Custer County assessment period opens Jan. 2 for property owners across the county and will continue without penalty through March 15.
County Assessor Brad Rennels outlined the extensive state requirements he deals with in assessing local property. Asked if he sees big assessment changes for 2014, Rennels said the $250 million Enogex gas plant west of Butler is nearing completion. That plant will be in the Hammon School District, and 80 percent of ad valorem taxes generated by the plant will go to that school district just over the line in Roger Mills County.
