The Middleton Common Council on July 16 approved a settlement that will give a local lumber company a property tax refund for 2011 and 2012. 

The resolution accepted by the council will give a refund totaling $7,925 payable to Hall Lumber. The contested valuation for those years was $1,167,700. A revised property valuation amount of $969,700 was determined by the Board of Review at its 2013 hearing for this year, and the city elected to settle its ongoing dispute with Hall Lumber for the years 2011 and 2012 as well. 

“We decided to settle those prior years on the same basis as the board’s 2013 determination,” said city administrator Mike Davis.

The plan approved by the city on July 16 also includes forgiveness of a $755 judgment for costs in one of multiple lawsuits filed during a three-year dispute between Hall Lumber and the city over the value of the land.
