Thurman to hold ‘Old Home Days’

The Town of Thurman has named their hometown observance of the Warren County Bicentennial as Thurman Old Home Days. The celebration is to be held the evenings of Friday June 14 and Saturday June 15.

Town of Thurman news

Three local residents are now being sought to serve on the Thurman Board of Assessment Review. The board has two members, and is supposed to have five, appointed to the panel by the Thurman Town Board. Anyone interested should write a letter of interest to the Thurman Town Clerk. The board’s function is to hear the objections citizens may raise about their assessments.

If the Board of Assessment Review doesn't resolve an issue to a person’s satisfaction, citizens have the right to go before an arbitrator and achieve their objective. If this is not successful, citizens can file a lawsuit.

It is recommended that grieving property owners meet with a town assessor to try to reach an agreement before such other actions are necessary.
