– reported that he had talked with County Auditor Rick Jeffery about the Nexus
Gas Line tax valuation struggle. He said that Nexus had met with all the
Auditors of the tax districts involved with the Nexus gas line. He said Nexus
had said that they were dropping the valuation of the gas line because of a loss
of gas production due to a loss of gas production to another competitor. Mr.
Jeffery said that Nexus had negotiated a current value for the gas line with the
State of Ohio and had agreed to pay tax at 85% of the agreed value if every
entity involved would settle on that amount. Mr. Jeffery said all but one entity
had agreed with the new valuation and tax base. Nexis stated that if there was
any outstanding entity and it ended up in court that the earlier agreed upon
agreement would be voided. Mr. Jeffery said at this point, being that it’s ended
up in the courts, it is anyone guess at what the new agreement will be.
