The city of Terre Haute is set to lose as much as two-to-three million more dollars in property tax revenue after the county’s assessments came in 7 percent lower than last year. The head of the state’s assessor’s association says a change in the state’s overall assessment process may be partly to blame.

Vigo County finished its assessments later than most counties – getting data to the state just before the end of 2012. So leaders now have less time to plan for where to find the missing cash.

Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett says the calculations have left experts perplexed and officials trying to avoid blame.

I'm wondering if those who bought big fancy homes and are now underwater in their mortgages, just found out how much they're really under the water. I live in an average home, not underwater, and mine went up nearly 10 thousand.

Maybe they need to reduce the size of the fire departments and get rid of the over priced ambulances that look like a semi....maybe they should expose Derreck Scott as the loser he is and put his salary towards the 2 million short fall. My advice is free Mayor.
