Medina County files 2013 property values with state

MEDINA COUNTY — Medina County Auditor Michael Kovack has filed property values for the coming year with the Ohio Department of Taxation.

More than $63 million of residential new construction will be added to the tax rolls next year, while commercial and industrial valuations will actually decline, according to Kovack.

Townships led the way for residential new construction, with Montville Township picking up nearly $7 million. Brunswick Hills was the second leading gainer with more than $6.5 million. Sharon and Hinckley townships rounded out the top four.

Wadsworth City had the largest amount of residential new construction value, with more than $6 million worth. Brunswick City had nearly $5.8 million. A large portion of that will be abated due to recent legislative changes in Brunswick. Medina City picked up less than $500,000 in new construction value this coming year.

Nearly $43 million in commercial and industrial new construction will be added to county tax rolls in 2013, but that will be offset by reductions given by the Medina County Board of Revision this year. The board reduced commercial/industrial valuations by more than $53 million. According to Kovack, there was pent-up downward demand in that sector, as the state did not approve any reductions for commercial/industrial during the last reappraisal due to limited sales.

Finally, the recession has slowed the pace of agricultural land loss in the county, according to Kovack. Only 1,437 acres of agricultural land were lost between Jan. 1, 2011, and Jan. 1, 2012.

The submission of values is the first step toward creating tax bills for calendar year 2013. Tax rates for the county for 2013 will be available once the state approves the county auditor’s values.
