SHELBYVILLE – A meeting to voice questions and concerns about the rise in assessed valuation on farmland will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 18, in Shelbyville.

The event is being hosted by state Rep. Brad Halbrook, the Shelby County Farm Bureau and the Illinois Farm Bureau.

Brenda Matherly, director of Local Government with Illinois Farm Bureau, will offer information about how farmland assessments are calculated and their long-term impact. Shelby County officeholders will be on hand to answer questions on property tax-related issues.

“The intention of this meeting is to answer questions in respect to this year’s assessment in Shelby County prior to end of the appeal period on Nov. 26,” said Madison McFadden, Shelby County Farm Bureau manager. “This is a great time for property owners to ask their questions to the experts.”

The meeting will be held at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center, 1989 State Highway 16 in Shelbyville. Doors open at 6 p.m. The meeting is free and open to the public.
