Report County Board Will Grant Cut In 
Pineford Tax Assessment

 Ask and you shall receive. But that doesn’t mean you’ll always get what you asked for. 

 The Clabell Company, which owns Pineford Village in Middletown, had filed a request with the Dauphin County Board of Assessment Appeals seeking a $4 million reduction in its assessed valuation. But it reportedly got considerably less than it had asked for.

 The requested cut reportedly would have trimmed the apartment complex’s assessed valuation from $18,463,400 to about $14,400,000. The cuts, if approved, would have cost the Borough of Middletown about $8,000 in revenues and would have reduced the Middletown Area School District’s income by an estimated $64,000.

 Those contemplated losses in Borough and School District income from real estate taxes prompted Middletown Council President Barbara Layne to indicate that Council would appeal the Board’s decision if it granted Clabell’s request for a reduction in the assessed valuation of its Pineford Village properties.
