In Weber County, 70-percent of assessment appeals are successful. Here’s what you need to know.

property tax weber county utah

For many homeowners, the day the county property assessment arrives in the mail is a day of reckoning. It’s nice to see that your property investment is going up in value, but if the assessment comes in too high, the new tax bill can be painful. On top of that, there are also many instances in which your assessment may be higher than your property’s true value. This, in turn, will lead to you paying more than your due in taxes. 

This isn’t necessarily a case of The Man trying to skim a little extra off of the back of the people. By and large, county assessors try to put a fair value to each property. But accurately assessing the value of tens of

Skyline Residents Happy in a Roundabout Way

Residents along the Skyline drive corridor will now be driving in circles, thanks to the completion of two sections of roadway connecting Weber State with Highway 89. Each project, one by Weber County and one by Ogden City, is meant to increase access to main roads like Harrison Boulevard and Highway 89.

The project added two roundabout intersections, one at Combe Road and Skyline, the other connecting Country Hills Drive, 1600 East, and Skyline Drive - previously an awkward arrangement of connecting roads. Even though access is much quicker southward toward Davis County and Salt Lake, some residents are still left with their heads spinning. 

Despite the worry of increased traffic along the roadway,

Pet of the Month April 2018

April 2018 Pet of the Month

NAMES:  Snickers and Oreo

BREEDS:  Chihuahua/Dachshund mix and Border Collie

AGES:  2 years and 1 year

GENDER:  Both Males 

ADOPTION FEE:  $100 – Includes two $40 vouchers to use towards their neuter. It also includes current vaccines and goodie bags.

HISTORY:  These dogs must be adopted together because of the close bond they have with one another. The former owner was relocating and couldn’t continue to care for them. Snickers is very calm for a Chihuahua and rarely barks. Oreo is more active and takes a minute to warm up to people but becomes very loving after that, offering human-like hugs. This pair can be very playful and would be fine around children older than 6.

March 2018 Pet of the Month

NAME:  Neko

BREED:  Pit Bull Mix

AGE:  1 year, 2 months

GENDER:  Male

ADOPTION FEE:  $85 – Includes a $40 voucher to use towards his neuter. It also includes current vaccines and goodie bag. He will be available on March 8th

HISTORY:  Neko is a sweet boy with a ton of energy and would fit well with someone with experience with his breed. A wooden or vinyl fenced yard would be ideal so he can run around and burn off all that excess energy. He’s a ball of muscle and will chase a ball until your arm wears out, not his enthusiasm. He walks well on a leash once the initial excitement of going for a walk wears off. He doesn’t play well with cats and needs a slower introduction to other dogs but knows the sit

The Scoop on Septic Systems

If there’s one thing everyone loves talking about (not really), it’s the nitty-gritty of septic tanks. In Ogden Valley and other rural locations, it’s a very real part of life and one that homeowners have to deal with every three to five years when it’s time to address possible service issues with your sewer system. In this blog, we’d like to dig into the issue a little deeper.

For those who are unaware, here are the basics. A septic system is an underground wastewater treatment structure, commonly used in rural areas without centralized sewer systems. These systems use a combination of nature and proven technology to treat wastewater from household plumbing produced by bathrooms, kitchen drains, and laundry.
