Home Values

Home values are affected by many things, not least of which are so-called intangibles, such as a clean, peaceful environment and inviting cultural and social climates.

Funny thing. The original opinion from the village assessor (who's contracted by the village) was requested by the village clerk. There is a subsequent second, revised opinion which was solicited by an ethanol booster from the local Chamber of Commerce. The second opinion is a reversal of the first. The fellow from the Chamber convinced the assessor that a thermal oxidizer would solve all potential problems associated with an ethanol plant. That is an assumption that hasn't been borne out in the real world.
